Thanks for joining us for our second daily recap about what happened today at ARIN 35.
Kicking off the morning, we heard updates from the Number Resource Organization (NRO) comprising the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). We also viewed many worldwide Internet number resources statistics on ASN, IPv4, and IPv6 allocations and assignments. Later in the day we heard global reports from our colleagues around the world at the IANA, AFRINIC, APNIC, LACNIC, and the RIPE NCC.
In a special Transfer Experience Panel, we heard lessons learned and observations from both brokers and organizations involved in the IPv4 transfer market. An interesting conversation ensued as attendees asked questions of panelists about IPv4 transfers.
Today the three policies discussed included:
- Draft Policy ARIN-2014-1: Out of Region Use
- Would clearly permit out of region use of ARIN-issued number resources
- Draft Policy ARIN-2014-14: Removing Needs Test from Small IPv4 Transfers
- Would add option of officer attestation instead of needs assessment for 8.3 and 8.4 transfers for a maximum of a /20
- Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-22: Removal of Minimum in Section 4.10
- Would eliminate the possible range of minimum /28 to maximum /24 and set the allocation/assignment at /24 in IPv4 /10 set aside for transition to IPv6
In the afternoon we learned about the status of Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) which is a new set of IETF specifications to replace the Whois protocol used by the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) and Domain Name Registries (DNRs). We finished the day with an open microphone session that covered a range of topics from Internet number transfers to the IANA stewardship transition.
All of today’s discussions will be posted online in in the upcoming weeks, including webcasts, complete transcripts, and abbreviated notes. In the meanwhile you can download all of the slides decks presented at the meeting already up on the ARIN website.
Lots of ARIN 35 attendees show their support for Get6. See ARIN’s album on Facebook!
Remember, you can participate in the final day of ARIN 35 starting at 9:00 AM PDT tomorrow morning whether you’re onsite with us here in San Francisco or at your home/office/local coffee shop through remote participation.
