Use of the Last /8
IANA and the RIRs: IPv4 Pool
IPv4 Distribution The RIPE community’s policies for allocations from last the /8 apply September 2012: The RIPE NCC starts to allocate IPv4 address space from the last /8 The RIPE NCC can only distribute IPv6 address space ? Time Now RIPE NCC IPv4 pool exhausted
Last /8 Policy • Each LIR can get one final /22 allocation • Applies for both new and existing members • 16.000 /22s in one /8 • Returned addressing space goes into the free pool • LIR must already hold an IPv6 allocation 12
/22 IPv4 Allocations – Regional Statistics Total allocations: 192
RIPE NCC available pool
Need more IPv4 space? Three different types of intra-RIR transfers: 1) Mergers and acquisitions 2) IPv4 allocation transfers under the IPv4 policies 3) Legacy space transfers 15
Getting an IPv6 Allocation • Must be an LIR • Plan to make assignments within two years • Minimum allocation size is a /32 • Up to /29 without having to justify need • Existing /32 can be extended up to a /29 18
Getting IPv6 PI Address Space • End Users must meet the contractual requirements for Provider Independent (PI) resources • LIRs must demonstrate special routing requirements • Minimum assignment size is a /48 • PI space cannot be used for sub-assignments 19
IPv6 in the Middle East
IPv6: Middle East Regional Statistics Number of allocations: 377
IPv6 RIPEness A star rating system based on IPv6 readiness An LIR receives one star each for: 1) Holding an IPv6 allocation 2) Announcing the IPv6 allocation 3) Registering a route6 object in the RIPE Database 4) Setting up reverse DNS for the IPv6 allocation A list of all LIRs’ RIPEness: http://ripeness.ripe.net 22
IPv6 RIPEness in the Middle East 23
Summary • The pool of IPv4 addresses is depleted • The RIPE NCC now allocates from the last /8 • IPv6 deployment is more important than ever • If you need help filling in the IPv6 allocation request or have any other RIPE NCC related issues – come see me in the service center! 24
