Good Morning all,
There will be a BoF on the subject of IP address leasing at the
APRICOT 2014 meeting on Tuesday, 25th Feb 2014 at 17:30 - 19:00 in the
Grand Caymans room on Level 10.
I will be chairing this BoF and I'd like to invite all interested
parties to attend.
While the concept of IP address leasing is not new, and has been the
primary model for ISP sub-delegation to its customers, there is an
assumption that some level of operational control is retained by the
ISP. There is an expectation that the registry data reflects an
operational hierarchy that makes it possible for people to look up
'parent' blocks and use the contact information at that level to
resolve operational issues at a lower level network block.
This model and assumptions may no longer be valid in the IPv4
exhaustion state we're currently in. Addresses may be leased out with
no operational service or control attached to it. How should the
registry reflect this reality, to maintain its important role in
facilitating operational trouble shooting? Policy-wise, should lessors
be allowed to accumulate address space, using leasing demands as
'demonstrated need' in getting more IP addresses transferred to them?
Voice your opinion in a healthy debate in this BoF, held to gauge the
community's sentiment on these important issues.
