Introduction: PDF PPTX
Presentation: PDF PPTX
Transcript

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

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Chris Grundemann and Owen DeLong
  • Introduced on PPML in January 2011 (ARIN-prop-126) and designated as a draft policy in May 2011. Current version 22 September 2011. This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN meeting.

Highlights:

  • Ties the registration of client data in Whois to compliance with an ARIN resource review
  • Requires ARIN to grant minimum of 90 days to respond before resource revocation
  • Allows ARIN to revoke rDNS services for addresses that our out of compliance (minimum 30 days, maximum 60 days)

Tim Denton, Chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion Highlights included:

  • This policy may hinder the “user-friendliness” of IPv6 adoption because no reverse DNS or an IPv4 reclamation can harm business significantly
  • Clarification that this proposal intends to only edit 12.4 and 12.6 and leaves all other sections alone
  • Concern over causing headaches for those behind on IPv6 adoption
  • Potential issues with organizations only marginally aware of ARIN who may not know how to update records
  • Concern over placing decisions like turning off rDNS in staff hands in order to avoid criticism over not having concrete policy to fall back on

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). A second question was posed to see if there was interest in seeing this policy proposal abandoned.
