Biografía

Kevin Meynell is the Senior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement working in the Internet Technology Office. His main responsibility is for the Deploy360 program which encourages deployment of key Internet technologies including IPv6, DNSSEC, DNS Privacy, Routing Security and TLS. This involves identifying resources and producing content that support the goals of the program, along with social media and outreach activities to promote and raise awareness of developments in these areas.

Kevin graduated from Middlesex University with a degree in Geography, and discovered the Internet whilst working at the JET Nuclear Fusion Project in the early-90s. This led to a move to UKERNA (now Jisc) in 1995 where he worked on the SuperJANET and National Dial-Up Service initiatives, before joining TERENA (now the GÉANT Association) in 1997. Aside from an 18-month sabbatical to help establish CENTR, he spent the next 16 years working on activities including the 6NET and 6DISS IPv6 deployment projects, eduroam, the Global Lambda Interconnect Facility, the TERENA X.509 PKI Service and TF-CSIRT, as well as being responsible for NREN Development Support in Eastern and Southern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and occasionally the Caribbean region. 

After leaving TERENA, he worked as the Manager of the Shibboleth Consortium that develops the widely Shibboleth web single sign-on software, before moving to APNIC as its Head of Training in 2014. He joined the Internet Society in October 2015.

Kevin has also been the Executive Secretary of GLIF since 2012, organising the Annual Global LambdaGrid Workshops, and is a member of the ENOG Program Committee. He was previously the Coordinator and ex-officio Steering Committee member of TF-CSIRT from 2008 to 2012, where he developed a new governance structure, CSIRT certification process and training courses, as well as establishing the joint FIRST/TF-CSIRT Technical Symposia. Whilst at CENTR he chaired the RIPE Domain Name Registration Forum, and more recently organised NREN development conferences for the European Union's Eastern Partnership as well as the TERENA/RIPE promotional events for World IPv6 Day and World IPv6 Launch Day. 

Kevin Meynell is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
