Abstract

In June 1992, the Internet Activities Board sought to push the Internet Engineering Task Force into a solution for the Internet’s address depletion problem. Its actions provoked a management crisis that forced a restructuring of the Internet standards governance process. Although the events have been characterized as a revolt by the Internet Engineering Task Force, this article revisits the preceding five years to show that the IETF, at least initially, sought to avoid the crisis.
