IPv4 Depletion & IPv6 Deployment

  1. 1. IPv4 Depletion &IPv6 DeploymentKjell Leknes - May 2012
  2. 2. Overview About RIPE and RIPE NCC IPv4 address pool exhaustion IPv4 depletion process IPv6 deployment IPv6 in Saudi Arabia How to request IPv6 IPv6 Act Now 2
  3. 3. The five RIRs 3
  4. 4. IPv4 Depletion
  5. 5. IANA and RIRs IPv4 pool Today Projection Data 5
  6. 6. IPv4 exhaustion phases IPv4 still available. RIPE NCC continues distributing it policy from last /8 applies RIPE NCC can only distribute IPv6 ? n o time wIANA pool RIPE NCC RIPE NCCexhausted reaches pool final /8 exhaustedEach of the 5 RIRs given a /8 6
  7. 7. IPv4 Run Out FairlyGradually reduced allocation / assignmentperiods - 12 months (January 2010) - 9 months (July 2010) - 6 months (January 2011) - 3 months (July 2011)50% has to be used up by half-period 7
  8. 8. Last /8 We do things differently! Ensures IPv4 access for all members - 16 000 x /22 in a /8 - members can get one /22 (=1024 addresses) - must already hold IPv6 - must qualify for allocation /16 set aside for unforeseen situations - if unused, will be distributed No PI so far. May change. 8
  9. 9. Our slice of IPv4 RIPE NCC 9
  10. 10. Legacy SpaceIPv4 addresses distributed prior to the RIR systemWhy register? - Benefits: - legitimize holdership - update reverse DNS delegation - use membership services - no fees! - Risks: legacy@ripe.net - frozen data in the RIPE Registry - vulnerable to hijackers 10
  11. 11. Additional IPv4 allocation requirements 80% must be in use Tidy up current records Request a list of invalid assignments Send an IPv4 Additional Allocation request We will audit you 11
  12. 12. Transfer of IPv4 allocations Transfer unused allocations to another LIR Minimum allocation size /21 Evaluated by the RIPE NCC 12
  13. 13. IPv6 Deployment
  14. 14. IPv6 Distribution 14
  15. 15. IPv6 in Saudi Arabia Only 36% of LIRs have an IPv6 allocation 15
  16. 16. Getting an IPv6 allocation Requirements: - Be an LIR - Plan to make assignments within two years Minimum allocation size /32 Announcement as a single prefix recommended 16
  17. 17. Getting IPv6 PI space Requirements: - Meet the contractual requirements Minimum assignment size /48 17
  18. 18. IPv6 Allocations and Announcements 18
  19. 19. Extension of the minimum allocation size Awaiting decision Initial IPv6 allocation from /32 to /29 Enables small LIRs to deploy 6RD 19
