Discussion highlights:

  • If I need to get connectivity before I get address space, what happens if I can't get space?
  • Need to validate that folks can't multihome with their existing addresses before we guarantee new space
  • Need to add intent language for usage plan on the new allocation
  • Bear in mind this is a policy for existing customers, not for new customers
  • Need to bear in mind that existing customers might have really high utilization, and that makes it difficult to free up addresses to do what this policy is asking them to do

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-1: Out of Region Use

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

John Curran presented an introduction to the proposal.

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Milton Mueller, Stacy Hughes, and Bill Darte
  • Introduced on PPML in January 2014 (ARIN-prop-192)
  • This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN Public Policy Consultation
  • 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.

  • Rationale for the proposal
  • Overview of text
  • Request for community input – is this policy needed? Should we be limiting out of region use at all.

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • Some of the criteria as written is potentially problematic, specifically as it pertains to billing addresses
  • If this policy passes, it doesn't impact new requests only how existing space usage is measured
  • This is not intended to change criteria for requesting space
  • This would speed up depletion of IPv4 at ARIN.  Not sure ARIN should position itself as a global RIR – this policy opens that door
  • Staff analysis may need to be performed about how this aligns with transfer policy.
  • Discussion of applicability of policy to IPv6
  • Request for staff clarification – Currently staff does ask requestors for information about where the space will be used. How does this policy impact that?

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • An alternate service to RPKI is reliant on reverse DNS, walking away from this impacts that potential option
  • Removing this doesn't change current operational practice, but it sounds like there might be reasons why we need to do this differently
  • There was a past request for clarity on the term "lame" that is needed to implement this as currently written.
  • Lame needs a canonical definition if ARIN is to keep this policy – there are business implications to stripping the DNS of "lame" servers

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-7: Section 4.4 Micro Allocation Conservation Update

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

John Curran presented an introduction to the proposal.

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Andrew Dul and Robert Seastrom
  • Introduced on PPML in January 2014 (ARIN-prop-200)

  • Raise minimum IXP requirement from two to three operators
  • Concerns that this could have negative impact on some entities in the region
  • Request for community input

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • There is an accepted community IXP standard that defines an IXP as including three parties
  • In the ARIN region there are not a lot of IXPs, this policy is to encourage conservation and help develop more successful IXPs in the region
  • This oversteps the scope of the NRPM, the Board should be defining the status of organizations with regard to establishing their billing category (ISP, End-user, etc.)
  • The way this is written could have implications for other types of organization, not just IXPs

For discussion details, please see the transcript.
