Internet engineering steering group (IESG)

The Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG) is a committee consisting of the IETF Chair and six Domain Leaders.

The IESG coordinates activities between the individual IETF working groups and thus the standardization process. The establishment of new Working Groups (WG) is overseen by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), and WG leaders are also selected and approved by the IAB. The members of the IESG are elected from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

The IESG, together with the Internet Research Steering Group (IRSG), forms the Internet Society (ISOC).
