A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E APNIC Open Address Policy Meeting Address Policy SIG October 26th, Brisbane
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Proposal Definition A proposal for an amended ‘Provider Independent’ (PI) address assignment policy
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Background CIDR promotes hierarchical addressing Through ‘Provider Aggregatable’ assignments PI assignments discouraged Requests for PI assignments For redundancy, resiliency and load sharing Due to lack of knowledge of CIDR Frequently small, usually multi-homed Routing table concerns Increase of 36% in routing table size in last 12 months Over 50% announcements comprise /24’s
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Motivation APNIC current policy Assign PI to ‘Non-Member’ with one-time payment of US$8,192 (formal) Assign PI through existing members without charge to both applicant and member (informal) No contract Inconsistent across membership APNIC needs a clearer policy framework when assigning Provider Independent (PI) addresses Issue raised at SIG in Korea No input but consensus for change, hence proposal
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Current Status - Other RIRs RIPE NCC Assign PI to end-users only through members No contract Criteria: end-users must give reasons No minimum assignment size, no sub-assignments ARIN Assign PI to end-users directly Requestors sign ‘Registration Services’ contract Criteria: multi-homed and should have utilised a /21 and demonstrate need for /20 in next 3 months No sub-assignments
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Discussion - Technical Type of connectivity? eBGP mandatory criteria? Proposal: multi-homed (eBGP) to different ISPs or ‘planning to multi-home’ Rationale: Promotes hierarchical routing Size of site? How large should the site be for a PI assignment? Proposal: ‘sufficiently large’ Utilised a /21 from their upstream ISP or able to demonstrate they plan to use a /21 in 3 months and a /20 in a year Rationale: Follows minimum practical allocation policy
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Discussion - Administrative Contractual Proposal: To establish a contractual relationship with end user Rationale: Lack of contract makes it difficult to manage, need to provide in-addr and whois services Consistency Proposal: NIRs should implement same policies Assignments made by APNIC through NIRs. Rationale: APNIC and NIRs may have different policies leading to inconsistency across region
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Discussion - Financial Consistency With fee structure for allocation of the same size (/20) One time fee with maintenance fees ‘Non-member’ income Subject to company taxation (estimated at 34%) Proposed Up to and including a /19USD $ 2500 + 34% tax > than a /19 and = a /16USD $ 5000 + 34% tax > than a /16USD $10000 + 34% tax Admin fee $1000 and annual 10% maintenance fee
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Summary and Recommendations New PI policy proposed Organisation should be multi-homed or plan to be within 3 months Have used a /21; or plan to use /21 in 3 months and a /20 in a year Pay the fee and the maintenance fees Sign a contract with APNIC Accept space from 202/7 No sub-assignments outside organisation Expectation to be routed as aggregate NIRs implement same policies through APNIC
A S I A P A C I F I C N E T W O R K I N F O R M A T I O N C E N T R E Implementation Implementation date 3 months from approval from membership Discontinue formal and informal PI policies APNIC to prepare documents PI contract Fee structure document Update forms and web-site Inform the community with mailing lists & web
