ACSP Suggestion 2023.18: Expand Fraud Reporting to Include Leasing of 4.10 Space


Author: Anonymous   
Submitted On: 27 October 2023

Description: Widen scope of ARIN fraud reporting tool to include NRPM 4.10 leasing or offer a similar submission mechanism for this purpose.

Value to Community: NRPM 4.10 space is extremely valuable for new startups. We might not exist without it. There are numerous organizations who acquire NRPM 4.10 prefixes and then lease them out in the leasing market fur purposes other than IPv6 transition. The current fraud reporting tool seems geared towards outright theft by way of illegal transfers or the creation of organizations fake documentation. There needs to be a way to report NRPM 4.10 prefixes that are being leased out.
