HI Aftab,

 

Thanks for providing inputs!

 

My reading of the actual policy is that it actually enforces the multihoming 
“in a reasonable future”. 

An organization will also be eligible if it can demonstrate that it will
meet the above criteria upon receiving an ASN (or within a reasonably
short time thereafter).

So, the question I’m trying to solve is what if I can’t or don’t want to 
multihome? I’m an SME, I want to have my own IPv6 PI announced with my own ASN, 
however I’m fine not multihoming.


Regards,

Jordi

Asunto: Re: [sig-policy] prop-128-v001: Multihoming not required for ASN

 

Hi Jordi,

We updated this requirement after a year-long discussion within the community. 
It doesn't enforce you to multi-home but suggests you should in the future. I 
don't see this as a roadblock in receiving PI address space. 

 

Regards,

Aftab A. Siddiqui

prop-128-v001: Multihoming not required for ASN

Proposers: Jordi Palet Martínez

1. Problem Statement
When the ASN assignment policy was originally designed, the reliability
of networks was not so good as today. So, at that time, it was making
sense to make sure that and ASN holder is multihomed.

However, today this is not necessarily a reasonable requirement, and
even in some cases, some networks may require an ASN and not willing
to be multihomed (because the cost, or remote locations that have only
a single upstream, etc.), and their SLA requirements don’t need that
redundancy.

The deployment of IPv6 also increase the need for organizations which
are not ISPs, to obtain IPv6 PI in order to have stable addresses,
and in that situation, ideally, they should announce their PI space
with their own ASN. In most cases, they don’t have to be multihomed.
2. Objective of policy change
To ensure that organizations which have their own routing policy and
the need to interconnect with other organizations, can do it.

Interconnect is used here with the commonly understood meaning of
establishing a connection between two (administratively) separate
networks.
3. Situation in other regions
ARIN and LACNIC don’t require multihoming. RIPE requires it. AfriNIC has
a policy equivalent to APNIC, but I’m submitting a proposal similar to
this one to change it as well as in the case of RIPE.
4. Proposed policy solution
Current Policy text

12.1. Evaluation of eligibility

An organization is eligible for an ASN assignment if:
- it is currently multihomed, or
- it holds previously-allocated provider independent address space and
intends to multihome in the future.

An organization will also be eligible if it can demonstrate that it will
meet the above criteria upon receiving an ASN (or within a reasonably
short time thereafter).

Requests for ASNs under these criteria will be evaluated using the
guidelines described in RFC1930 'Guidelines for the creation, selection
and registration of an Autonomous System' (AS).

Proposed text

12.1. Evaluation of eligibility

An organization is eligible for an ASN assignment if:
- it is multihomed or
- has the need to interconnect with other AS.

An organization will also be eligible if it can demonstrate that it will
meet any
of the above criteria upon receiving an ASN (or within a reasonably
short time thereafter).

Requests for ASNs under these criteria will be evaluated using the
guidelines described in RFC1930 'Guidelines for the creation, selection

5. Advantages / Disadvantages
Advantages:
Fulfilling the objectives above indicated.

Disadvantages:
None foreseen.
