"IANA was established informally as a reference to various technical functions for the ARPANET, that Jon Postel and Joyce K. Reynolds performed at UCLA and at the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute.
On March 26, 1972, Vint Cerf and Jon Postel at UCLA called for establishing a socket number catalog in RFC 322. Network administrators were asked to submit a note or place a phone call, "describing the function and socket numbers of network service programs at each HOST".[6] This catalog was subsequently published as RFC 433 in December 1972.[7] In it Postel first proposed a registry of assignments of port numbers to network services, calling himself the czar of socket numbers.[8]
The first reference to the name "IANA" in the RFC series is in RFC 1060, published in 1990"
