The text as published is currently undergoing staff and legal review.

I've have noted this particular update for after the S&L - especially if it is something that they call out as a potential risk.

Thanks,

As I currently ready 6.5.5.1 there are two classes of addresses that are required to be SWIP'd
A. any re-allocation or re-assignment that is a /47 or less specific (/46, /45, ...)
B. any sub-deligation that will be individually announced

I recall there being a third class, any re-allocation.

A re-allocation is when I ISP provides addresses to their down stream
ISP customer who then in turn will further sub-delegate address space
to their customer (who may also be an ISP with customers... and so on).

Can I suggest a friendly amendment of:


6.5.5.1. Re-allocation / reassignment information
Each static IPv6 re-allocation, reassignment containing a /47 or more addresses, or subdelegation
of any size that will be individually announced, ...

The new policy (along with pre-existing text) will read as follows:

6.5.5.1. Reassignment information
Each static IPv6 assignment containing a /47 or more addresses, or subdelegation
of any size that will be individually announced, shall be registered in the WHOIS
directory via SWIP or a distributed service which meets the standards set
forth in section 3.2. Reassignment registrations shall include each client's
organizational information, except where specifically exempted by this policy.

6.5.5.2. Assignments visible within 7 days
All assignments shall be made visible as required in section 6.5.5.1 within seven
calendar days of assignment.

6.5.5.3. Residential Subscribers
6.5.5.3.1. Residential Customer Privacy
To maintain the privacy of their residential customers, an organization with downstream
residential customers may substitute that organization's name for the customer's name,
e.g. 'Private Customer - XYZ Network', and the customer's street address may read
'Private Residence'. Each private downstream residential reassignment must have
accurate upstream Abuse and Technical POCs visible on the WHOIS record for that
block.

6.5.5.4  Registration Requested by Recipient
If the downstream recipient of a static assignment of /64 or more addresses requests
publishing of that assignment in ARIN's registration database, the ISP must register
that assignment as described in section 6.5.5.1.

You are encouraged to discuss all Draft Policies on PPML. The AC will evaluate the discussion in order to assess the conformance of this draft policy with ARIN's Principles of Internet number resource policy as stated in the Policy Development Process (PDP). Specifically, these principles are:

* Enabling Fair and Impartial Number Resource Administration
* Technically Sound
* Supported by the Community

Draft Policy ARIN-2017-5: Improved IPv6 Registration Requirements

Problem Statement:

Current ARIN policy has different WHOIS directory registration requirements for IPv4 vs IPv6 address assignments. IPv4 registration is triggered for an assignment of any address block equal to or greater than a /29 (i.e., eight IPv4 addresses). In the case of IPv6, registration occurs for an assignment of any block equal to or greater than a /64, which constitutes one entire IPv6 subnet and is the minimum block size for an allocation.  Accordingly, there is a significant disparity between IPv4 and IPv6 WHOIS registration thresholds in the case of assignments, resulting in more work in the case of IPv6 than is the case for IPv4. There is no technical or policy rationale for the disparity, which could serve as a deterrent to more rapid IPv6 adoption. The purpose of this proposal is to eliminate the disparity and corresponding adverse consequences.

Policy statement:

1) Alter section 6.5.5.1 "Reassignment information" of the NRPM to strike "/64 or more addresses" and change to "/47 or more addresses, or subdelegation of any size that will be individually announced,"

and

2) Alter section 6.5.5.2. "Assignments visible within 7 days" of the NRPM to strike the text "4.2.3.7.1" and change to "6.5.5.1"

and

3) Alter section 6.5.5.3.1. "Residential Customer Privacy" of the NRPM by deleting the phrase "holding /64 and larger blocks"

and

4) Add new section 6.5.5.4  "Registration Requested by Recipient" of the NRPM, to read: "If the downstream recipient of a static assignment of /64 or more addresses requests publishing of that assignment in ARIN's registration database, the ISP must register that assignment as described in section 6.5.5.1."

Comments:

a.    Timetable for implementation:

Policy should be adopted as soon as possible.


b.    Anything else:

Author Comments: IPv6 should not be more burdensome than the equivalent IPv4 network size. Currently, assignments of /29 or more of IPv4 space (8 addresses) require registration. The greatest majority of ISP customers who have assignments of IPv4 space are of a single IPv4 address which do not trigger any ARIN registration requirement when using IPv4. This is NOT true when these same exact customers use IPv6, as assignments of /64 or more of IPv6 space require registration. Beginning with RFC 3177, it has been standard practice to assign a minimum assignment of /64 to every customer end user site, and less is never used.  This means that ALL IPv6 assignments, including those customers that only use a single IPv4 address must be registered with ARIN if they are given the minimum assignment of /64 of IPv6 space. This additional effort may prevent ISP's from giving IPv6 addresses because of the additional expense of registering those addresses with ARIN, which is not required for IPv4. The administrative burden of 100% customer registration of IPv6 customers is unreasonable, when such is not required for those customers receiving only IPv4 connections.
