Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2014-12: Anti-hijack Policy

Date: 3 June 2014

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.

Modify the third sentence to clarify the original policy intent 
regarding justification for allocations larger than the applicable minimum.

11.7 Resource Allocation Guidelines

The Numbering Resources requested come from the global Internet Resource 
space, do not overlap currently 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 resources than stipulated 
by the applicable minimum allocation size in force at the time of its 
request, the request must clearly describe and justify why a larger 
allocation 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.

a. Timetable for implementation: Immediate
