  • Clarification that this would not limit the initial allocation size to /24

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

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

Background

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Milton Mueller, Stacy Hughes, and Bill Darte

David Farmer presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

  • Rationale for the proposal
  • Overview of text
  • Request for community input

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • Can this policy trigger a reclamation or revocation action?
  • We should move away from regional restrictions for allocation – the registry function is simply administrative
  • Still needs some wordsmithing and the incidental use portion of this policy may not be necessary

At the end of discussion, Paul stated that this information would be provided to the Advisory Council for use in its deliberations.

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-3: Remove 8.2 and 8.3 and 8.4 Minimum IPv4 Block Size Requirements

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

Background:

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Bill Darte and Owen DeLong
  • Introduced on PPML in January 2014 (ARIN-prop-195)
  • This draft policy was discussed at the ARIN Public Policy Consultation at NANOG 60 and at ARIN 33

John Springer presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

  • Rationale for the proposal
  • Overview of text
  • Request for community input

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • There is no technical reason why there should be /24 minimum.  If people want to transfer a /32 they should be able to do so
  • Routability does matter, and ARIN needs to keep it mind when developing policy – massive numbers of /32 transfers would be bad for routing
  • Regardless of what is being transferred, Operators get to decide what they will route. Transfers are more of an operator to operator decision
  • There are possible unintended and negative technical and business implications to this policy – not comfortable moving forward with this at this time

At the end of discussion, Paul Andersen asked for a show of hands to determine those in favor and those against abandoning this draft policy (remote participants were invited to participate). After the tally was conducted, Paul stated that this information would be provided to the Advisory Council for use in its deliberations.

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-6: Remove 7.1 [Maintaining IN-ADDRs]

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

Background:

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Robert Seastrom
  • Introduced on PPML in January 2014 (ARIN-prop-198)
  • This draft policy was discussed at the ARIN Public Policy Consultation at NANOG 60 and at ARIN 33

Scott Leibrand presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

  • Rationale for the proposal
  • Overview of text  - this policy has been updated to include removal of 6.5.6 so that it applies to both IPv4 and IPv6
  • Request for community input

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • Would ARIN still be responsible for providing IN-ADDR support for ISPs?
  • It is unclear who should be defining the operators responsibilities for IN-ADDR – that discussion is out of scope for this venue
  • This seems like it would be best defined in an RFC
  • As long as the reverse zone is delegated, what the registrant does with the IN-ADDR is their issue.

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-14: Removing Needs Test from Small IPv4 Transfers

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

Background

  • Advisory Council shepherds: Andrew Dul and John Springer
  • Introduced on PPML in May 2014 (ARIN-prop-204)
  • This is the first discussion of this draft policy at an ARIN Public Policy Consultation.

John Springer presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

  • Rationale for the proposal
  • Overview of text
  • Request for community input

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • /16 is too large to be considered "small" for the purposes of this policy, a /20 seems more reasonable
  • This should only apply to one transfer per year, additional transfers should be subject to needs assessment
  • ARIN should not be lowering its standard to simply that of a recorder of deeds
  • People are going to do this, whether the rules permit it or not, the registration of the space will be irrelevant.
  • Why are we looking to create policy to relieve a staffing issue at ARIN

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-15: Allow Inter-RIR ASN Transfers

Introduction: John Curran, ARIN President and CEO

Presentation: PDF PPTX
Transcript

Background

Scott Leibrand presented the text of the proposal and then the rationale.

  • Rationale for the proposal
  • Overview of text
  • Request for community input

Paul Andersen, Vice-chairman moderated discussion.

Discussion highlights:

  • Don't support introducing regional fragmentation into the 4-byte AS pool by allowing transfers
  • This policy, and other Inter-RIR transfer policies, create implementation challenges for operators that need to be considered (e.g. RPKI)
  • There is no burning need to allow the transfer of ASNs, so it would be good to work through all the considerations before we adopt this policy

Discussion highlights:

  • By co-mingling transition space and new-entrant reserve we create a mess – these two issues need to be handled through separate policies to keep things clear
  • There is inherent inequality in the use of and access to address space. We should be holding as much IPv4 as possible for small organizations and new entrants
