prop-113-v003: Modification in the IPv4 eligibility criteria
Proposer: Aftab Siddiqui email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org

- Problem statement ----------------------------
The current APNIC IPv4 delegation policy defines multiple eligibility criteria and applicants must meet one criteria to be eligible to receive IPv4 resources. One of the criteria dictates that “an organization is eligible if it is currently multi-homed with provider-based addresses, or demonstrates a plan to multi-home within one month” (section 3.3).
The policy seems to imply that multi-homing is mandatory even if there is no use case for the applicant to be multi-homed or even when there is only one upstream provider available, this has created much confusion in interpreting this policy.
As a result organizations have either tempted to provide incorrect or fabricated multi-homing information to get the IPv4 resources or barred themselves from applying.
- Objective of policy change
In order to make the policy guidelines simpler we are proposing to modify the text of section 3.3.
- Situation in other regions ------------------------------------
ARIN: There is no multi-homing requirement
RIPE: There is no multi-homing requirement.
LACNIC: Applicant can either have multi-homing requirement or interconnect.
AFRINIC: There is no multi-homing requirement.
- Proposed policy solution ------------------------------------
Section 3.3: Criteria for small delegations
An organization is eligible if:
it is currently multi-homed, OR
currently utilising provider (ISP) assignment of at least a /24,
AND intends to be multi-homed, OR
- intends to be multi-homed, AND advertise the prefixes within 6
Organizations requesting a delegation under these terms must demonstrate that they are able to use 25% of the requested addresses immediately and 50% within one year.
- Advantages / Disadvantages
Simplifies the process of applying for IPv4 address space for small delegations and delays the immediate requirement for multi-homing as determined to be appropriate within the timeframe as detailed in Section 3.3.
There is no known disadvantage of this proposal.
- Impact on resource holders
No impact on existing resource holders.
