Draft Policy 2012-3: ASN Transfers

Introduction: John Curran, ARIN President and CEO
Speaker: Scott Leibrand, ARIN Advisory Council
Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF PPTX
Transcript

John Curran presented an introduction to the proposal.

Highlights included:

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Scott Leibrand and Bill Sandiford
  • Introduced on PPML in September 2011 (ARIN-prop-157) and designated as a draft policy in March 2012. Current version: 14 March 2012
  • There is no similar proposal under consideration at any other RIR
  • Presentation of Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity [See presentation and transcript links above for details]

Scott Leibrand continued with the presentation of the proposal. Scott presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

Highlights:

  • Modifies the 8.3 transfer policy and adds an inter-RIR transfer policy (both for IPv4 addresses only)  

Tim Denton, Chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion Highlights:

  • Suggestion to apply this change solely to two-byte ASNs
  • Clarification that 8.2 transfers can involve ASNs, and may cover most cases in which ASNs would be transferred whether or not this policy is implemented
  • Note that RPKI concerns are limited in terms of drawbacks
  • Clarification on legal impacts of the inclusion of ASNs in 8.3 transfers

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Tim Denton asked for a show of hands to determine those in favor and those against the draft policy (remote participants were invited to participate).

Draft Policy 2012-1: Clarifying requirements for IPv4 transfers

Introduction: John Curran, ARIN President and CEO
Speaker: Dan Alexander, ARIN Advisory Council
Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF PPTX
Transcript

John Curran presented an introduction to the proposal. Highlights included:

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Scott Leibrand and Stacy Hughes
  • Introduced on PPML on 2 May 2011 (ARIN-prop-144) and designated as a draft policy 24 August 2011. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting
  • There is no similar proposal under consideration at any other RIR
  • Presentation of Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity [see presentation and transcript links above for details]

Scott Leibrand continued with the presentation of the proposal. Scott presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale

Highlights:

  • Removes “single aggregate” language from 8.3 policy and aligns with current staff implementation
  • Allows multiple netblocks to be transferred in a single transaction
  • Reduces potential legal conflicts for ARIN and simplifies policy
  • Potential drawback is that allowing smaller blocks to transfer could result in additional routes being announced in the DFZ

Tim Denton, Chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion Highlights included:

  • Implementation is contrary to wording.  Seems the language needs to be changed to reflect the intended implementation
  • Will solve problems by allowing things to be done in the open
  • Question as to whether this allow for the transfer of blocks smaller than current minimum allocation
  • This would make implementation of 8.3 easier

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Tim Denton asked for a show of hands to determine those in favor and those against the draft policy (remote participants were invited to participate). After the tally was conducted, Tim stated that this information would be provided to the Advisory Council for use in its deliberations.

Highlights included:

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Heather Schiller and Cathy Aronson

Heather Schiller continued with the presentation of the proposal. Heather presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale

Highlights included:

  • Modifies 6.5.3b to add “when 75% of the aggregate has been subnetted, and each subnet contains at least 1* customer or infrastructure allocation or assignment” to LIR subsequent allocation requirements (*1 can be replaced here with any reasonable number)
  • Solves the case where an entity does not have enough address space remaining in order to create additional subnets

Tim Denton, Chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion Highlights included:

  • Concern that early adopters with short sightedness regarding their IPv6 needs may end up stuck with not enough space
  • Concern that complicating the process of receiving subsequent allocations may hinder IPv6 adoption as a whole

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Tim Denton asked for a show of hands to determine those in favor and those against the draft policy (remote participants were invited to participate).

  • Addresses the perceived over-conservation of the remaining free pool caused by the three-month rule

Discussion highlights included:

  • Concern about this proposal being an overcorrection to the three-month rule
