Draft Policy ARIN-2014-12 "Anti-hijack Policy," was discussed at ARIN 33 
in Chicago this week, it was generally supported.  However, there were 
two modifications to the Policy Text suggested;

1.  In the first paragraph; change "previously" to "currently".

2.  Remove the last sentence of the second paragraph;  This sentence 
implies that ARIN should issue an LOA, where as ARIN should NOT issue 
any LOA at all, expect for resources assigned to ARIN for its 
operational use. ARIN should record the allocation to the receiving 
organization in its public database, then the organization with the 
allocation may issue any LOA necessary.

Are there any additional comments or suggestions for the AC to consider?

Otherwise, the AC will consider the advancement of the modified text to 
Recommended Draft Policy status.


Draft Policy ARIN-2014-12
Anti-hijack Policy

Problem Statement:

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.

Policy statement:

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 
without allocations.

11.7 Resource Allocation SizeGuidelines

The Numbering Resources requested come from the global Internet Resource 
space, do not overlap previouslycurrentlyassigned 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.
