ARIN-prop-149 Improved Transparency for Directed Transfers

Proposal Originator: Owen DeLong

Proposal Version: 1

Date: 12 May 2011

Proposal type: new

Policy term: permanent

Policy statement:

Add the following to section 8.3 of the NRPM (where 8.3.[a..z] are
replaced with appropriate new subsection numbers when incorporated into
the NRPM)

8.3.a  In order to provide greater transparency in the transfer process
and provide the community the best set of tools to make routing
decisions as prefix disaggregation increases as a result of the transfer
market, ARIN shall maintain and publish a list of all prefixes
transfered under section 8.3. The list will identify the original prefix
and each subordinate prefix transferred under this policy and the date
each prefix was transferred.

8.3.b  Upon activation of this policy, ARIN shall include in the list at
the earliest possible time all prefixes which have been transferred
under section 8.3 to date.

Rationale:

The community has a right to know which prefixes have been added or are
the result of transfer-related disaggregation. This will provide
accurate data in a central well-known location.

Timetable for implementation: immediate
