The Internet will get support for IPv6, a more secure domain name system and international characters during the next couple of years, according to Vint Cerf.

There is still a lot to be done to make the Internet more useful than it is today. Broadcast and support for multihoming, which can make it convenient for users to have more than one ISP, are two areas where there is room for improvement, according to Cerf.

"So we have lots of potential, new designs to add to the Internet to make it more functional and effective than it is today," said Cerf.
