Our Active Projects

The Public Policy Working Group

The i2Coalition Public Policy Working Group is responsible for determining specific responses and actions for the i2Coalition to pursue in regards to global policy issues that are important to the Internet’s infrastructure. Recent achievements center around Net Neutrality and surveillance reform. Policy Group members meet monthly and take an active role in reviewing policy and writing briefs on behalf of i2Coalition that support and promote policies that foster continued development and expansion of the Internet.

The VPN Trust Initiative

The VPN Trust Initiative (or “VTI”) is a consortium of leading VPN providers focused on improving digital safety for consumers by building understanding, strengthening trust, and mitigating risk for users. In 2020, the i2Coalition introduced the VPN Trust Initiative Principles, a comprehensive set of best practices for VPN providers that bolster consumer confidence and provider accountability and ultimately increase VPN adoption and access to the technology’s benefits.

The Domain Name Association (“The DNA”)

The Domain Name Association (“The DNA”) Working Group began as a trade association for the domain name industry to promote growth and innovation, communicate the benefits of domains, and provide resourcing and networking opportunities. The DNA merged with the i2Coalition in 2020 to further its mandate and together provide an even stronger voice for those who build the Internet. The DNA maintains the TheDNA.org, a helpful resource for materials so that everyone can get the most out of domain names.

The DNS Issues Working Group

The DNS Issues Working Group provides members important policy and technical updates on the Domain Name System, and coordinates on the i2Coalition’s engagement with the multistakeholder communities that manage the root and other global functions of the Internet. For instance, public comments on numerous ICANN-related issues to advance our voice within the multi-stakeholder model, including on ICANN Budgets and Five Year Plans.

Insights & Innovation Committee

The Internet infrastructure industry faces a diverse set of serious issues ranging from security, safety, and privacy issues to forward-thinking business practices. The i2Coalition Insights & Innovation Committee facilitates important discussions and cooperation on methods and practices that promote security, safety and privacy, and issues relating to diversity, equity and inclusion. For instance, this committee helps empower member organizations though webinars that address timely issues ranging from technology, security and abuse reporting to business and cultural issues in the tech industry.
