ARIN’s Public Policy Meeting took place in the Golden Gate City today, bringing together Internet community members from across the region and around the globe to talk about the policies that determine how Internet number resources are distributed.
To start the day off, we heard from the Advisory Council Chair about on-docket proposals. Then we took a look at regional policies that are being discussed in the four other Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). We received a report on ARIN’s policy implementation and experiences that identified areas where new or modified policy may be needed based on operational experience and customer feedback. An IPv6 IAB/IETF Activities Report took a look at what is going on at Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) meetings.
In the late morning, we heard from a Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal (CRISP) Team Panel that reviewed the proposal submitted to the IANA Stewardship Coordination Group (ICG). The panelists talked about the current status, the next steps, and they also took many questions from attendees.
The policies we discussed today included:
- Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-6: Remove Operational Reverse DNS Text
- Would remove IPv4 and IPv6 reverse DNS text
- Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-21: Modification to CI Pool Size per Section 4.4
- Would extend the CI pool from a /16 to a /15 equivalent.
- Draft Policy ARIN-2015-1: Modification to Criteria for IPv6 Initial End-User Assignments
- Would add to the end user IPv6 policy: if an organization has a minimum of 13 sites, it would qualify for IPv6 space.
We wrapped up the day with an ARIN software development update. Yesterday during ARIN 35, we had two great tutorials. First, those who attended learned all about Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) in How to Certify Your ARIN Resources with RPKI. The hands-on session walked through how to sign up for Hosted RPKI (in a test environment) and how to issue a Route Origin Authorization (ROA). Second, during a tutorial on Life After IPv4 Depletion, we found out about the various options for obtaining IP address space as we near full IPv4 address depletion. There was also an orientation for first time meeting attendees.
We enjoyed chatting with you on Twitter throughout the meeting. Here are some of our favorites using the #ARIN35 hashtag so far. Keep up the sharing!
