Speaker: David Farmer, ARIN Advisory Council

Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF
Transcript

John Curran presented an introduction to the proposal.

Highlights included:

  • Advisory Council shepherds: David Farmer and Scott Leibrand
  • Introduced on PPML on 14 January 2010 (PP 107) and designated as a draft policy 23 February 2010. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting.
  • This policy is unique to ARIN. The other RIRs have differing policies that determine requirements to qualify for a /48
  • Presentation of Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity [see presentation and transcript links above for details]

David Farmer, as one of the shepherds, continued with the presentation of the proposal. David presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

At the conclusion of the presentation, comments and questions were taken from the floor. Discussion highlights included:

  • Need to consider definition of the term “sites”; locations might better reflect topology, which should be a consideration
  • Concern that when you define “sites” or locations that the policy ends up delving into routing, and ARIN doesn’t do routing policy
  • This policy would address an inequity between end-users and ISPs.
  • The policy is still not liberalized enough and requires further revision.

  • ICANN holds the signing keys and VeriSign manages the zone signing key.
  • In the process of incremental deployment, available for testing since Dec. 2009
  • Ongoing dialogue with operator communities to assess real-world impact of changes
  • All documentation is available at www.root-dnssec.org/

DNSSEC under ARPA:

  • Signed arpa zone served since March

At the conclusion of the presentation, comments and questions were taken from the floor. Discussion highlights included:

  • How many of those roots are logging the results and is this data available for third parties analysis?
  • Have you seen response in v6 has failed due to excessive size and UDP response in IPv6 has failed due to that combination of excessive size and the inability to fragment?

  • Suggestion 2008.15 – WHOWAS service. Implementation to be completed as part of ARIN Online
  • Suggestion 2008.23 - Simple version of ARIN-IPv6-REASSIGN-4.2. To be implemented as part of the RESTful Provisioning Service
  • Suggestion 2009.2 - Promoting the Use of IPv6. A logo has been added to the website, and we are investigating adding a way to view the address.
  • Suggestion 2009.15 - Speed Up Timeline for Online POC Validation. Development underway for automated process, scheduled for deployment end of Q2 2010.
