  Internet Assigned Numbers Authority - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
IANA was formerly one man, the late Jon Postel.
IANA delegates the allocation of IPv4 addresses to RIRs in large chunks (typically /8 or more at a time), and the RIRs then follow their own policies for address allocation.
IANA is under the control of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), but ultimate control of the DNS root zone is held by the United States Department of Commerce.

 IETF Overview   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is the central coordinator for the assignment of unique parameter values for Internet protocols.
The IANA is chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) to act as the clearinghouse to assign and coordinate the use of numerous Internet protocol parameters.

 IANA, Internet Assigned Numbers Authority
IANA has been the central coordination, allocation, and registration organization for Internet addresses, domain names, and protocol parameters since the early days of the Internet.
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) is housed at the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute, where it manages a diverse database of Internet Protocol parameters and values for the ICANN, from port assignments to IETF XML URIs, ensuring they are assigned correctly and uniquely.
IANA was run by Jonathan Bruce Postel for thirty years until he passed away in 1998.

 ICANN | ICP-1: Internet Domain Name System Structure and Delegation (ccTLD Administration and Delegation)
This document is a summary of current practices of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) in administering RFC 1591, which includes the guidance contained in ccTLD News Memo #1 dated October 23, 1997.
For transfer of TLD management from one organization to another, the higher-level domain manager (the IANA in the case of TLDs), must receive communications from both the old organization and the new organization that assure the IANA that the transfer is mutually agreed, and that the proposed new manager understands its responsibilities.
The IANA has no special requirement for policies to be followed by TLD managers in connection with disputes over rights to domain names other than those stated generally in this document and RFC 1591.

 RIPE Draft Documents
With each additional allocation to an RIR, the IANA will double the address space held by the RIR, in effect providing the RIR with a total IPv6 prefix which is one bit shorter.
IANA will allocate to each RIR from the reserved prefix, in accordance with this policy document.
The IANA announcements will be limited to which address ranges, the time of allocation and to which Registry they have been allocated.

 RFC 1700 (rfc1700) - Assigned Numbers
The IANA is chartered by the Internet Society (ISOC) and the Federal Network Council (FNC) to act as the clearinghouse to assign and coordinate the use of numerous Internet protocol parameters.
The common use of the Internet protocols by the Internet community requires that the particular values used in these parameter fields be assigned uniquely.
It is the task of the IANA to make those unique assignments as requested and to maintain a registry of the currently assigned values.

 06-05-98 DNS Statement of Policy
IANA, headed by Dr. Jon Postel, coordinates this system by allocating blocks of numerical addresses to regional IP registries (ARIN in North America, RIPE in Europe, and APNIC in the Asia/Pacific region), under contract with DARPA.
A number of commenters, however, noted that the fourth function, as delineated in the Green Paper, overstated the functions currently performed by IANA, attributing to it central management over an expanded set of functions, some of which are now carried out by the IETF.
This is not to say, however, that IANA could not be reconstituted by a broad-based, representative group of Internet stakeholders or that individuals associated with IANA should not themselves play important foundation roles in the formation of the new corporation.

 Internet Assigned Numbers Authority - a Whatis.com definition - see also: IANA
IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) is the organization under the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) of the Internet Society that, under a contract from the U.S. government, has overseen the allocation of Internet Protocol addresses to Internet service providers (ISPs).
IANA also has had responsibility for the registry for any "unique parameters and protocol values" for Internet operation.
Partly because the Internet is now a global network, the U.S. government has withdrawn its oversight of the Internet, previously contracted out to IANA, and lent its support to a newly-formed organization with global, non-government representation, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).

 POC Open Letter to the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority
In 1996, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) and the Internet Society (ISOC) created the International Ad Hoc Committee (IAHC), which was succeeded by the Policy Oversight Committee (POC), to analyze and propose solutions to problems in the generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLD) part of the Domain Name System.
Rather, the number of members should be sufficiently large as to ensure that the majority of different stakeholder groups will be represented during any one term of office, but not so large as to preclude effective discussions and decision-making at plenary meetings.
Although there is no requirement for a large number of registries, there is no technical or administrative upward limit on their number other than as determined by economies of scale considerations.

The Internet Policy Oversight Committee joins the world in mourning the death of Dr. Jonathan Postel, a founding father of the Internet and the director of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority.
As a direct result of the initiative by Dr. Postel and the Internet Society in 1996, our committee was formed originally as the International Ad Hoc Committee to undertake a restructuring of the generic top level domains of the Internet.
Some of us were fortunate enough to have known him for many years; others came to know him as an inspiring and legendary figure who provided wise counsel, mixed with humor and friendship, as we struggled to bring consensus to a subject that generated no small amount of controversy.

Computers connected together via the Internet are able to send information back and forth because each connected machine (often referred to as a "host")[2] possesses a unique address.
Each Internet Protocol ("IP") address takes the form of four sets of numbers, separated by periods, or "dots." The IP number system is coordinated by, and numbers are assigned under the authority of, the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority ("IANA") which receives its charter from the Internet Society and the Federal Network Council.
