prop-106: Restricting excessive IPv4 address transfers under the final /8 block

    

Proposal textprop-106-v002
Synopsis

This policy proposes restricting transfers of IPv4 addresses allocated/assigned from the final /8 block. Based on our observations of the APNIC transfer history records, some LIRs seems to collect IPv4 address blocks under the final /8 range by using multiple accounts, and transfer these blocks to a single account. We believe this kind of behavior is against the spirit of the final /8 policy.

Current statusAbandoned.
