IT professionals must regularly reexamine emerging technologies to keep their networks updated and secure in light of constantly evolving challenges, opportunities, and threats. While the IETF finalizes and releases new standards and technologies, there have traditionally been no formal guidelines or assistance to encourage the global operations community to deploy those standards.
The Internet Society Deploy360 Programme supports the deployment and use of key Internet technologies by bridging the gap between IETF standards documentation and final adoption of those standards by the global operations community. Deploy360 provides real-world deployment information including detailed, technical how-to resources and educational articles, best current operational practices, case studies, and other in-depth information.
Deploy360 activities include:
- Collecting and creating technical resources and best current operational practices, and providing them to network engineers responsible for implementing new technologies
- Conducting ION Conferences to bring together network engineers and leading industry experts
- Speaking and exhibiting at numerous conferences and events around the globe
- Maintaining social media and outreach campaigns to promote key Internet technologies
We currently cover IPv6, DNSSEC, Securing BGP, Anti-Spoofing and TLS for Applications. As the Internet grows and evolves, new standards and technologies will emerge and priorities may shift. Deploy360 will consider other issues that would benefit from broader understanding within target communities. Deploy360 staff members will monitor key Internet technologies and IETF processes and feature them in programs as they are finalized.
