Draft Policy ARIN-2014-12
Date: 25 March 2014
ARIN should not give research organizations permission to hijack
prefixes that have already been allocated. Research organizations
announcing lit aggregates may receive sensitive production traffic
belonging to live networks during periods of instability.
Section 11.7 describes more than allocation size therefore updating the
section heading to something more accurate is appropriate.
Modify the section 11.7 heading to be more accurate. Modify the first
sentence to prohibit overlapping assignments. Add text at the end to
define how research allocations should be designated and prohibit LOA's
11.7 Resource Allocation Guidelines
The Numbering Resources requested come from the global Internet Resource
space, do not overlap previously assigned space, and are not from
private or other non-routable Internet Resource space. The allocation
size should be consistent with the existing ARIN minimum allocation
sizes, unless small allocations are intended to be explicitly part of
the experiment. If an organization requires more resource than
stipulated by the minimum allocation sizes in force at the time of their
request, their experimental documentation should have clearly described
and justified why this is required.
All research allocations must be registered publicly in whois. Each
research allocation will be designated as a research allocation with a
comment indicating when the allocation will end. ARIN will not issue a
Letter of Authority (LOA) to route a research prefix unless the
allocation is properly registered in whois.
