Draft Policy 2010-10: Global Policy for IPv4 Allocations by the IANA Post Exhaustion

Introduction: John Curran, ARIN President and CEO
Speaker: Martin Hannigan
Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF
Transcript

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

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Bill Darte and Owen DeLong
  • Introduced on PPML on 11 June 2010 (PP 115) and designated as a draft policy 20 July 2010. Current version 20 September 2010. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting.
  • Similar Proposals have been introduced and are under consideration at AFRINIC, APNIC, LACNIC, and RIPE NCC
  • Presentation of Staff Impact Analysis, Legal Review, Staff Comments, and overview of PPML discussion activity. [see presentation and transcript links above for details]

Martin Hannigan continued with the presentation of the proposal. Martin presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

Highlights:

  • Similar concept to 2009-6, but removes transfer and mandatory return language
  • Establishes eligibility requirements for redistribution from IANA
  • Maintains values of RFC 2050

Board Chair, Paul Vixie, moderated discussion.

Highlights included:

  • How is global policy proposal created? Via each RIRs individual policy process/cycle
  • Whether the policy should address the creation of future RIRs  and IPv4 distributions they might receive
  • Overly complex dealing with fragments. Should the policy define the lower limit for block sizes that can be returned and redistributed?
  • Can this reach global consensus without mandatory return language?

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Paul Vixie 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 2010-12: IPv6 Subsequent Allocation

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

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

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Marla Azinger and Heather Schiller
  • Introduced on PPML on 21 June 2010 (PP 118) and designated as a draft policy 20 July 2010. Current version 16 September 2010. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting.
  • A similar proposal is under consideration at APNIC

Marla Azinger continued with the presentation of  Draft Proposals 2010-9 and 2010-12. Marla presented the text of each proposal and its rationale. She invited Mark Townsley to come to the podium and give and give an overview of IPv6 transition technologies as they pertain to these policies.

Board Chair, Paul Vixie, moderated the discussion.

Highlights included:

  • How do we discuss two policies simultaneously?
  • Which policy is preferred? – 2010-9 could be simplified, but is preferred on the basis that it is technology specific. 2010-12 is too generic and vague.
  • Is a technology specific policy too narrow? Concerned that we will have to revisit this as new technologies come about
  • Shouldn’t create a policy ahead of operational experience
  • Creating so many rules about IPv6 is making it harder to deploy IPv6
  • These policies penalize innovators
  • Do we need for a separate block for transition technologies, or can native IPv6 and 6rd come out of the same resource pool?

For discussion details, please see the transcript.

At the end of discussion, Paul Vixie asked for a show of hands to determine those in favor and those against draft policy 2010-9 and then he asked for those in favor and against draft policy 2010-12 (remote participants were invited to participate).
