Dear SIG members,
Here's the summary report of the last Policy SIG held during APNIC 24 last week.
Community Resolution: At the beginning of the Policy SIG the following resolution passed unanimously.
Co-chair Election: Randy Bush and Jian Zhang were elected as new co-chairs.
The following proposal reached consensus:
prop-049: IANA policy for allocation of ASN blocks to Regional Internet Registries
There were two proposals that considered ways to distribute the last remaining blocks of the free IANA IPv4 address pool to the RIRs:
prop-051: Global Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4 Address Space
prop-046: IPv4 countdown policy proposal
Neither proposal reached consensus; however, there was consensus on the following principles:
- If there is to be a policy on the distribution of the last remaining IPv4 blocks to RIRs, then each RIR should be allocated one, not two, /8 blocks.
- Discussion is needed on the policy under which the last /8 would be allocated in the APNIC region.
The following proposal didn't reach consensus:
prop-050: APNIC transfer policy for IPv4 address holders
However many of the participants support to discuss further on this policy proposal. Author of this proposal will revise the proposal and come back to the next APNIC meeting with a proposal reflecting the revised input.
Four open proposals were not presented at the meeting:
prop-042: Proposal to change IPv6 initial allocation criteria prop-043: Proposal to remove reference to IPv6 policy document as an "interim" policy document prop-047: eGLOP multicast address assignments prop-048: IPv6 ULA-central
