IGF

(Internet Governance Forum) An international organization of governments and U.N. agencies that was founded to discuss Internet issues such as security and spam. It was created at the United Nations Summit in 2005 after the U.S. rejected turning over ICANN's control of Internet domain management to the U.N. The first meeting of the IGF was scheduled for 2006. See ICANN.
