Internet Standards

The technical decisions that govern how the internet operates are made by a wide variety of internet standards bodies, including the Internet Society, the Internet Engineering Task Force, and the World Wide Web Consortium, among others. Decisions must be made by these entities in a manner that safeguards privacy, security, and free expression. CDT brings the voice of civil society to the highest level of standards-setting deliberations.
