Internet Protocol (IP) for e-Gov

  1. 1. IP (Internet Protocol) for e-gov Badru Ntege: Chair, AFRINIC Board Ernest Byaruhanga: Policy Coordinator
  2. 2. • Content Layer – Pollution Control – Cybercrime – Intellectual Property Rights • Logical Layer – Standards – Domain Name System – IP Allocation & Numbering • Infrastructure Layer – Interconnection – Universal Access – Next Generation Pathways
  3. 3. About AFRINIC • The RIR Serving Africa – (4 others for other regions) • Location: – Mauritius (Administrative) – South Africa (Core Network Infrastructure for public services: whois, rDNS, etc) – Egypt (Disaster Recovery Centre).
  4. 4. About AFRINIC Core Function: Manage the distribution of Internet Numbers (not names) for operators of IP networks in the region: – IPv4 Addresses – IPv6 Addresses – Autonomous System Numbers
  5. 5. IPv4 addresses issued 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 Million IPv4Addresses
  6. 6. IPv4: Distribution by Economy South Africa 44% Egypt 18% Morocco 7% Tunisia 5% Algeria 5% Kenya 4% Nigeria 3% Seychelles 2% Others 12%
  7. 7. Getting IP addresses • IPv4 (and IPv6) addresses issued on demonstrated need for them. – Plan 12-month addressing requirements – Every connected device. • Send them to us (hostmaster@afrinic.net) • Addresses issued in 1 week if all information is in order.
  8. 8. Getting IP addresses AFRINIC is happy to support any e-gov projects and network infrastructure by expediting the processing of associated IP address requests. We have already issued address space to two east african e-gov directorates/agencies.
  9. 9. IPv6 • The (central) IPv4 address pool is now exhausted. • RIR pools also fast nearing depletion. APNIC (Asia Pacific) and RIPE NCC (Europe) issuing from their last blocks.
  10. 10. IPv6 • IPv4, by design, can only support 4.3 billion theoretical addresses (and much much less in reality). • Number of connected devices has far outgrown the capabilities of IPv4. • IPv6 is the ONLY future of the Internet. Can support 2128 IP addresses.
  11. 11. Global IPv4 pool 63.5 14.6 41.9 43.9 16.5 AFRINIC APNIC ARIN LACNIC RIPE NCC (Million IPv4 Addresses)
  12. 12. Africa projected run-out 2010 – 2012 Consumption Rates: 8.5 million IPv4 Addresses per year Inventory (Current): 63.5 million Projected Run out: Very Soon 
  13. 13. IPv6 Any new networks, especially to the scale of most e-gov services, MUST plan to be IPv6 ready from the start.
  14. 14. IPv6 • Support towards IPv6 deployment and transition: – IPv6 workshops for engineers: Hands-on drills for 4 days. • Conducted one last year at UMI, thanks to NITA. – IPv6 workshops for Managers. • Engineers don’t make the decisions.. Managers need to buy into it.
  15. 15. IPv6 Getting IPv6 Space – as easy as just requesting for it. – ‘Show a plan’ to deploy IPv6 networks and provide services in Africa. Governments will help promote IPv6 deployment by ensuring their own services are IPv6 ready.
  16. 16. You are all invited to: • IPv6 Workshops • Technical & hands-on drills for network and systems engineers • Internet Number Resource Policy discussions • AFRINIC, AFNOG, AFGWG, other AF* entities • Many more activities.
  17. 17. THANK YOU
