The Internet Society is focused on ensuring that a healthy, sustainable Internet is available to everyone – today and for the next billion users. Technology-focused programmes are a vital component of the Internet Society’s mission. We work to facilitate the open development of standards, protocols, administration, and to ensure a robust, secure technical infrastructure.
To the right are some of the Internet Society’s current technology topics - IPv6, DNSSEC, Internet Resilience & Stability, Networks & Trust, Open Internet Standards, Privacy & Identity, and Routing Security. Click on each for a brief overview of why we believe they are important, our current activities, and our latest related blogs and publications, or see them all below.
