Policy Proposals

Proposal to Remove Special African Policies From RIPE Policy Documents

2005-05: This RIPE Policy Proposal was to modify policy document text to reflect full recognition of AfriNIC as a functioning RIR.

Proposal to Add Regional Boundaries to Policy Documents

2005-06: Proposal to Add Regional Boundaries to Policy Documents. Proposal to mark IPv4 and IPv6 policy documents with a statement indicating that The RIPE NCC assigns Internet number resources located in the RIPE NCC Service Region.

Introducing DNSSEC Service to Reverse DNS Trees

2005-07: Introducing DNSSEC Service to Reverse DNS Trees. To implement DNSSEC, we propose extending the policy for Reverse Address Delegation of IPv4 and IPv6 Address Space in the RIPE NCC Service Region.

IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy - definition for "End-Site"

2005-04: IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy - definition for "End-Site". There are various terms for "end-site" in the IPv6 allocation and assignment policy and the RFC3177. We need to have a finally definition for "end-site" to establish clear internal assignment policies.

Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Policy for Allocation of IPv6 Blocks to Regional Internet Registries

2005-09: Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Policy for Allocation of IPv6 Blocks to Regional Internet Registries. The proposal is to have a policy governing the allocation of IPv6 address space from the IANA to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). This document does not stipulate performance requirements in the provision of services by IANA to an RIR in accordance with the policy. Such requirements should be specified by appropriate agreements between the NRO and ICANN.

HD-ratio Proposal

2005-01: HD-ratio Proposal. The proposal is to change the further allocation criteria for IPv4 as described in ripe-324: "IPv4 Address Allocation and Assignment Policies for the RIPE NCC Service Region".

Consumer Broadband Monitoring Feasibility

2005-10: Consumer Broadband Monitoring Feasibility. This is a proposal to have the RIPE NCC, as a neutral body, develop a way of measuring performance for consumer broadband networks. The proposal requests funding for a limited deployment prototype with the purpose of assessing industry and consumer acceptance, functional requirements and technical issues.

Multicast Monitoring on RIPE NCC Test Traffic Boxes

2005-11: Multicast Monitoring on RIPE NCC Test Traffic Boxes. This proposal is to add functionality to the Test Traffic Measurement (TTM) service that allows for testing of multicast-capable networks.

IPv6 Initial Allocation

2005-03: IPv6 Initial Allocation. The proposal is to change the IPv6 Initial Allocation criteria outlined in the "IPv6 Address Allocation and Assignment Policy". The proposed change is to remove "have a plan for making at least 200 /48 assignments to other organisations within two years" and to remove the reference to "/48s" as the assignment size.

LIR-PARTITIONED Status for IPv6

2006-03: LIR-PARTITIONED Status for IPv6. This proposal is to have a new status for IPv6 address space as "LIR-PARTITIONED".
