FROM: Bernard Aboba, IAB Chair TO: ITU-T TSAG, Director of the TSB CC: IESG Title: Appointment of Eliot Lear as new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T The IAB would like to bring to the ITU-T's attention the appointment of Mr. Eliot Lear the new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T. The IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T sees to the day to day aspects of the relationship with the ITU-T, provides guidance to the IESG, IAB, and the IETF as a whole on strategic matters involving both organizations. In addition, Mr. Lear will work closely with our other liaison managers to assure consistency of approach across technologies, as well as see that liaisons from the ITU-T to the IETF are appropriately allocated and responded to. We expect Mr. Lear to play a significant supporting role in strategic discussions between the IETF and ITU leadership. Mr. Lear has over twenty years experience in networking, during nearly all of which he has in some way participated in the IETF. He is the author of eight RFCs, former chair of two Working Groups and one IRTF Research Group, and has participated in every Area in the IETF. Mr. Lear is also the co-Rapporteur in ITU-D Q22-1/1 "Securing information and communication networks: best practices for developing a culture of cybersecurity", as well as a past participant in the IPv6 Group and WSIS activities. The IAB thanks the outgoing Liaison Manager, Mr. Patrik Fältström, for his valuable service. [For the IAB], Bernard Aboba IAB Chair
