This session is designed to explore the impact of the identifier technology of the Internet of Everything (IoE) to the Internet Governance. First, the session will discuss the future trends of today’s identifier technologies including Domain Name System, Handle, ONS and OID, especially in the current era that the Internet, Industrial Internet and Internet of Things are merging to the IOE. Second, requirements and challenges of IOE identifier technology to the Internet Governance will be explored, especially the changes from the universal identification, intelligent resolving, security, and high scalability. Last, the new framework of the Internet Governance, or more specially say, the framework of the IOE Governance will be tentatively discussed, especially whether the today’s hierarchical framework is still suitable for IOE? This issue has not been touched on prior workshops or discussions.

Format:
