Draft Policy ARIN-2009-8
Equitable IPv4 Run-Out
Version/Date: 24 November 2009
Rename NRPM 184.108.40.206;
220.127.116.11 Subscriber Members Less Than One Year
Replace NRPM 18.104.22.168 with;
22.214.171.124 Subscriber Members After One Year
After an organization has been a subscriber member of ARIN for one year, they may choose to request up to a 12 month supply of IP addresses.
When ARIN receives its last /8, by IANA implementing section 10.4.2.2, the length of supply that an organization may request will be reduced. An organization may choose to request up to a 3 month supply of IP addresses.
This reduction does not apply to resources received via section 8.3. An organization receiving a transfer under section 8.3 may continue to request up to a 12 month supply of IP addresses.
This policy is intended to ensure an equitable distribution of IPv4 resources as run-out of the ARIN free pool occurs. This is achieved by changing section 126.96.36.199 of the NRPM to reduce the length of supply of IPv4 resources that may be requested when the IANA free pool runs-out. Equity is accomplished by reducing the window that an advantage or disadvantage can exist between competitors, that will be created when one competitor receives a final allocation just before run-out and another competitor does not.
Further this policy ensures equity between incumbent resource holders and new entrants by providing the same length of supply for each as the ARIN free pool runs out. This eliminates a potential bias toward incumbent resource holders that is created as a result of ARIN free pool run-out interacting with resource allocation slow start for new entrants in current policy.
This policy is similar to ideas in RIPE policy proposal 2009-03 (http://www.ripe.net/ripe/policies/proposals/2009-03.html), and has been adapted by discussion and for use within the ARIN region.
This policy is intended to be independent of other policies or proposals to reserve address space for IPv6 transition or other purposes. It is not intended to limit Transfers to Specified Recipients per section 8.3 of the NRPM.
This draft contains the elements that there seems to have been the largest consensus for on the floor of ARIN XXIV Public Policy Meeting in Dearborn, Michigan. Further, there was a strong preference that no changes be triggered until IANA free pool run-out.
Timetable for implementation: Immediate
