  9. 9. Ingrid WijteNeed More Address Space? •  Three different types of intra-RIR transfers:1) Mergers and acquisitions2) “Normal” transfers of allocations3) Legacy space transfers•  An inter-RIR transfer policy proposal is currently underdiscussion that would allow transfers between regionswith reciprocal policies9
  10. 10. Ingrid Wijte1) Mergers and Acquisitions•  If an organisation (or part of it) is being sold, the Internetnumber resources in use by its network can betransferred•  Documentation requested:–  Merger/purchase agreement–  Company registration papers for both parties–  New “Independent Assignment Request and MaintenanceAgreement” (only for Provider Independent resources)•  Based on procedural document ripe-57910
  11. 11. Ingrid Wijte2) “Normal” Transfers of Allocations•  Policy requirements–  Transfers between LIRs only–  The IP addresses transferred must not be in use–  Receiving LIR must justify need for IP addresses–  Permanent or temporary•  Documentation requested:–  Signed RIPE NCC Transfer Agreement–  Company registration papers for both parties–  RIPE NCC additional allocation (pre)approval for receiver•  Based on ripe-582, section 5.511
  12. 12. Ingrid Wijte3) Legacy Space Transfers•  IPv4 address space that was distributed prior to theformation of the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) system•  The RIPE NCC is able to support transfers of legacyspace when this is covered by a “Legacy SpaceAgreement”•  The RIPE NCC is not involved in the transfer when thelegacy resources are not covered by a “Legacy SpaceAgreement”12
  13. 13. Ingrid WijteIPv4 Transfer Listing Service•  Enables LIRs looking to transfer allocations to findreceiving parties•  LIRs can also request resources•  Member-only service through the LIR Portal•  The RIPE NCC has no interest in financial transactions•  Transfers must follow transfer policy in ripe-582, section5.5•  Currently 45,056 IPs offered vs 12,077,056 requested•  Data available in JSON format13
