Internet Research Task Force

(www.irtf.org) An organization of working groups involved in researching future Internet technologies. The IRTF is managed by the IRTF Chair in conjunction with the Internet Research Steering Group (IRSG). The IRTF Chair is appointed by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB). When the technologies are deemed ready for development, they are transferred to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). See Internet Engineering Task Force.
