[arin-ppml] Discussion Petition of ARIN-prop-125 Efficient Utilization of IPv4 Requires Dual-Stack
The message below started a petition regarding the ARIN Advisory
Council's decision to abandon "ARIN-prop-125 Efficient Utilization of
IPv4 Requires Dual-Stack". The AC's decision was posted by ARIN staff to
PPML on 21 December 2010.
If successful, this petition will change ARIN-prop-125 into a Draft
Policy which will be published for adoption discussion on the PPML and
at the Public Policy Meeting in April. If the petition fails, the
proposal will be closed.
For this petition to be successful, the petition needs statements of
support from at least 10 different people from 10 different
organizations. If you wish to support this petition, post a statement of
support to PPML on this thread.
The duration of the petition is until five business days after the AC's
draft meeting minutes are published. ARIN staff will post the result of
the petition to PPML.

> Utilization of IPv4 Requires Dual-Stack
> The AC should not have abandoned ARIN-prop-125 Efficient Utilization
> of IPv4 Requires Dual-Stack. I petition to move the following text
> forward for discussion on the list and at the next Public Policy
> Meeting. Please support moving this proposal forward now by posting
> statements in support of the petition to this list.
> Policy Statement:
> * Add the following sections to section 4.1:
> 4.1.2. Efficient Utilization
> IPv4 addresses are a finite resource and as such are required to be
> efficiently utilized by resource holders in order to maximize their
> benefit to the community.
> 4.1.3. Dual-Stack
> Dual-stack refers to configuring both an IPv4 and an IPv6 address or
> network together on the same network infrastructure.
> All new IPv4 addresses assigned, allocated or transfered to an
> organization must be deployed on dual-stacked interfaces along with
> IPv6 addresses.
> 4.1.4. IPv6 Deployment
> When addresses are used to provide an Internet facing service, the
> service must be fully IPv6 accessible (if you deploy an A record, you
> must also have a AAAA record, and both must answer).
> * Add the following sentance to the end of sections 184.108.40.206,
> 220.127.116.11.2, 18.104.22.168.1, 22.214.171.124. and 4.3.4:
> In accordance with section 4.1.3 and 4.1.4, all new addresses must be
> deployed on dual-stacked interfaces and all Internet facing services
> provided by new addresses must be fully IPv6 accessible.
> * Re-write section 126.96.36.199.1. to:
> Reassignment information for prior allocations must show that each
> customer meets the 80% utilization criteria, the dual-stack criteria
> and must be available via SWIP / RWhois prior to your issuing them
> additional space.
> * Add the following section to section 4.2.4:
> 188.8.131.52. IPv6 Deployment
> In order to receive additional space ISPs must provide detailed
> documentation demonstrating that:
> - for every IPv4 address requested, at least one pre-existing
> interface is dual stacked, up to 80% of all interfaces and
> - for every down stream customer site where the new addresses will be
> deployed, at least one pre-existing down stream customer site is IPv6
> enabled, up to 80% of the total customer base.
> * Add the following to section 4.3.6:
> 184.108.40.206. IPv6 Deployment
> In order to receive additional space end-users must provide detailed
> documentation demonstrating that at least 80% of their existing IPv4
> addresses are deployed on dual-stacked interfaces in accordance with
> section 4.1.3.
> In this period of available IPv4 address scarcity and transition to
> IPv6, IPv4 addresses that are not deployed along with IPv6 are simply
> not being efficiently utilized. Although we have likely failed to
> deploy dual-stack in a meaningful way in time to avoid transition
> problems, we can still choose the correct path for future assignments,
> allocations and transfers.
> This proposal has three objectives:
> -1- Encourage IPv6 deployment prior to and post depletion
> -2- Enable growth of IPv4 to accelerate IPv6 transition #[only change
> was to this line]#
> -3- Improve the utilization of IP addresses
> It accomplishes these goals by enforcing three basic ideals:
> -1- ARIN will only make allocations and assignments for networks that
> have already deployed production IPv6
> -2- Any new IPv4 addresses received, must be deployed along side of
> IPv6 (dual-stacked)
> -3- Firmly encourages deployment of IPv6 in existing IPv4-only networks
> The specific requirements to be enforced can be summed up in this way:
> ~ New addresses must be deployed on dual-stacked interfaces plus one
> additional pre-existing IPv4-only interface must be dual-stacked per
> new address, up to 80% of all interfaces.
> ~ For each down stream customer site where these addresses are
> deployed, another pre-existing IPv4 only down stream site must also be
> IPv6 enabled, up to 80% of the total customer base.
> ~ All end-sites must dual-stack before getting new space.
> ~ Internet facing services that new IPv4 addresses are used to provide
> must be fully IPv6 accessible.
