In the first phase of the project, BBN successfully organized information into bundles (a concept developed by the DTNRG, an Internet Research Task Force
Working Group) rather than packets.
It also supports IETF management groups such as the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG), and the associated Internet Research Task Force
(IRTF) -- all of which support the IETF's mission to develop specifications for Internet protocols and technologies essential for the ongoing evolution of the Internet.
Kent served as a member of the Internet Architecture Board (1983-1994), and chaired the Privacy and Security Research Group of the Internet Research Task Force
(1985-1998), both now under the auspices of the Internet Society.
