Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-22
Removal of Minimum in Section 4.10

Date: 25 November 2014

AC's assessment of conformance with the Principles of Internet Number Resource Policy:

This proposal is technically sound in that it ensures the minimum allocation from a section 4.10 (Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 Deployment) is large enough to be widely accepted on the public Internet today. This policy received community and operator support on the public policy mailing list and at the February Nanog PPM from many who believe that prefixes smaller than /24 will not propagate widely. This proposal enables fair and impartial number resource administration by being applied to all that request a section 4.10 allocation.

Problem Statement:

The current section 4.10 Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 Deployment creates an issue where a small new organization that requires an IPv4 allocation or assignment would potentially receive a block that today would be unroutable and therefore unusable for it intended purposes.

Policy statement:

Change

"This block will be subject to a minimum size allocation of /28 and a maximum size allocation of /24. ARIN should use sparse allocation when possible within that /10 block."

To

"This block will be subject to an allocation of /24. ARIN should use sparse allocation when possible within that /10 block."

Timetable for implementation: Immediate

ARIN STAFF ASSESSMENT

Draft Policy ARIN-2014-22
Removal of Minimum in Section 4.10
Date of Assessment: 20 Feb 2015

1. Summary (Staff Understanding)
This proposal will modify existing policy NRPM 4.10 Dedicated IPv4 block to facilitate IPv6 deployment. The current policy sets the minimum allocation size as /28 to a maximum of /24. This proposal changes the allocation size to simply be a /24 with no maximum or minimum.

2. Comments

A. ARIN Staff Comments

• ARIN has issued one /24 from this reserved pool to date.
• This proposal can be implemented as written.

B. ARIN General Counsel - Legal Assessment

• Counsel sees no material legal issue with this proposal.

3. Resource Impact

This policy would have minimal resource impact from an implementation aspect. It is estimated that implementation would occur within 3 months after ratification by the ARIN Board of Trustees. The following would be needed in order to implement:
· Updated guidelines and internal procedures
· Staff training
