Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF
Transcript

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

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Marc Crandall and Bill Darte
  • Introduced on PPML on 20 July 2010 (PP 117) and designated as a draft policy 20 July 2010. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting.
  •  This draft policy is unique to the ARIN region
  • Presentation of Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity. [see presentation and transcript links above for details]

Owen DeLong continued with the presentation of the proposal. Owen presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

Highlights:

  • Whenever a transfer is initiated with ARIN or ARIN becomes aware of a transfer
  • When fraud or abuse is reported to ARIN about an address block
  • When the staff's reviewing a request for additional resources and finds that more than one quarter of an ISP's downstream SWIPs are covered under the residential customer privacy policy. 

Board Chair, Paul Vixie, moderated the discussion. Discussion highlights included:

  • What triggers resource reviews, and how these reviews are handled
  • An editorial change in the current resource review policy which will need to occur regardless of the outcome of this proposal

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Paul Vixie took a straw poll to determine the sense of the room, and requested that remote participants submit their votes on several questions related to this draft policy. After the tally was conducted, Paul stated that this information would be provided to the Advisory Council for use in its deliberations.

Draft Policy 2010-13: Permitted Uses of space reserved under NRPM 4.10

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

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

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Scott Leibrand, Owen DeLong
  • Introduced on PPML on 18 June 2010 (PP 116) and designated as a draft policy 4 August 2010. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting.
  • APNIC  and LACNIC have related policies in place, and similar proposals are under consideration at AFRINIC and RIPE.
  • Presentation of Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity. [see presentation and transcript links above for details]

Owen DeLong continued with the presentation of the proposal. Owen presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

Highlights included:

  • It sets aside the entire last /8 that ARIN receives for networks transitioning to IPv6
  • Any IPv4 address space returned to ARIN and not subject to global or regional transfer policy gets added to this transition pool. 
  • Establishes four classes of requesters with four different pools to draw from. 

Board Chair, Paul Vixie, moderated the discussion. Discussion highlights included:

  • Several are opposed to the proposal, noting that the complexity of the policy would make it very difficult to implement in time for v4 runout.
  • It’s trying to solve a problem that has already been solved
  • Routing implications
  • Overly complex and wordy; staff may be unable to implement before run-out
  • May be unfair for some requestors
  • Support of the policy stems from its potential to help prevent chaos and confusion post-depletion

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Paul Vixie took a straw poll to determine the sense of the room, and requested that remote participants submit their votes on several questions related to this draft policy. After the tally was conducted, Paul stated that this information would be provided to the Advisory Council for use in its deliberations.
