Name Status Proposal Number Working Group Date Archived
Ambiguity cleanup on IPv6 Address Space Policy for IXP
WITHDRAWN
2010-07 Address Policy Working Group January 2011

Reason for withdrawal: The editorial text change proposed will be discussed in the Cosmetic Surgery Project

Allocations from the last /8
ACCEPTED
2010-02 Address Policy Working Group January 2011

Frequent Update Request
WITHDRAWN
2010-09 Anti-Abuse Working Group November 2010

Summary: This proposal suggests to have the minimum assignment size for PI assignments to be a /24 when routing is a major issue for a multihoming End User.

Reason for Withdrawal: The proposer decided to withdraw the proposal based on the feedback received at RIPE 61. A task force will be organised to solve the implementation issues pointed out by the proposal discussion.

Adding Reference to Sponsoring LIR in inetnum, inet6num and aut-num objects
WITHDRAWN
2010-10 Anti-Abuse Working Group November 2010

Summary: This is a proposal to add a reference to sponsoring LIR in inetnum, inet6num and aut-num objects to increase the possibility of abuse tracking and handling.

Reason for Withdrawal: The proposer decided to withdraw the proposal based on the feedback received at RIPE 61. A task force will be organised to solve the implementation issues pointed out by the proposal discussion.

Ensuring Efficient Use of Historical IPv4 Resources
WITHDRAWN
2008-07 Address Policy Working Group November 2010

Summary: This was a proposal to require documentation of all address resources held when assessing a RIPE NCC member's eligibility for further IPv4 address space.

80% Rule Ambiguity Cleanup

2010-04 Address Policy Working Group October 2010

Summary: This proposal is to solve the ambiguity in the current wording of the IPv4 Allocation Policy (ripe-492) regarding the "80% utilisation" rule.

Global Policy for the Allocation of IPv4 blocks to Regional Internet Registries
ACCEPTED
2009-01 Address Policy Working Group August 2010

Summary: With the depletion of the IANA free pool of IPv4 address space, the current policy regarding the allocation of IPv4 address space to the RIRs will become moot. The RIRs may, according to their individual policies and procedures, recover IPv4 address space. This policy provides a mechanism for the RIRs to retro allocate the recovered IPv4 address space to the IANA and provides the IANA the policy by which it can allocate it back to the RIRs on a needs basis. This policy creates a new global pool of IPv4 address space that can be allocated where it is needed on a global basis without a transfer of address space between the RIRs.

NOTE: In October 2010, ICANN announced that the NRO deemed the global policy proposal abandoned due to differences in the global proposal texts among the RIRs. Hence this proposal, although regionally accepted, will never be globally implemented. The ICANN announcement is available online at: http://www.icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-12may09-en.htm

Global Policy State in RIPE PDP
WITHDRAWN
2010-03 Address Policy Working Group July 2010

Summary: This proposal would have modified the RIPE Policy Development Process to create a new state that is specific to global policies. This state was "Accepted pending consensus in other RIR communities." This would have allowed a global policy to be further discussed in the event that modifications are made in other RIR communities after acceptance in RIPE

Reason for Withdrawal: Proposer decided to withdraw the proposal based on the feedback received at RIPE 60.

Using the Resource Public Key Infrastructure to Construct Validated IRR Data
WITHDRAWN
2008-04 Routing Working Group July 2010

Summary: This is a proposal to introduce a new registry that augments IRR data with the formally verifiable trust model of the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) and provide ISPs with the tools to generate an overlay to the IRR which is much more strongly trustable.

Reason for Withdrawal:
Proposers decided to withdraw the proposal.

IPv4 Allocation and Assignments to Facilitate IPv6 Deployment
WITHDRAWN
2009-04 Address Policy Working Group April 2010

Summary: The last IPv4 /8 that the RIPE NCC will hold is proposed to be dedicated to facilitate deployment of IPv6. Allocations and assignments from this block will be made based on demonstrated need, but the size will be downscaled taking into account existing transition technologies (for example dual-stack lite, NAT464, successors of NAT-PT). The proposed minimum allocation size is to be a /27 for such allocations and assignments.

Allocations and assignments from this block will also be justified by demonstrating that the requirements of the transition plan as specified in RFC 5211 are met.

Reason for Withdrawal: Authors decided that they want to make a new proposal (see 2010-02).
