    Action ipv6-16-001: IPv6 technical SIG draft charter to be discussed on the ipv6 mailing list.

    Update: closed. The Chair explained that a new charter had been proposed without objection. The new charter is:

    To share information on IPv6 deployment around the region and to review technical and engineering issues relating to IPv6.

  3. IPv6 allocation update

  4. Tim Jones, APNIC

    Presentation [pdf | ppt]

    This presentation provided statistics of the total IANA IPv6 allocations, a comparison of the allocations made by the RIRs, a breakdown of APNIC allocations, a review of the IPv6 routing table, and IPv6 registration statistics.

    The presenter noted that RIPE NCC has made over half the total IPv6 allocations and APNIC has made approximately one quarter of the total IPv6 allocations.

    So far 14 economies have received allocations from APNIC. Japan has received more than half the total allocations in this region. Korea, Taiwan, and China have also received large amounts of address space.

    Fifty of the 67 /35 allocations made by APNIC have upgraded to /32. One /30 has been allocated.

    To date, APNIC has received two applications for experimental IPv6 allocations; however, in both cases, consultation with the applicants resulted in regular /32 allocations being made.

    It was noted that anyone who received a /64 IXP assignment under the old policy is eligible to have that upgraded to a /48, subject to return of the original assignment.

    The IPv6 routing table shows that /32 is by far the most frequently routed prefix.

    Questions and discussion

    • It was noted that the /30 allocation made was an initial allocation and was justified by documented network needs.
    • It was noted that RIPE NCC has made more allocations of IPv6 than anywhere else. There was a request for clarification as to why there is so much more allocation in that region and how much of that address space is being deployed.

    Action items

    • None.

  5. IPv6 .kr DNS deployment status in Korea

  6. Billy MH Cheon, KRNIC

    Presentation [pdf | ppt]

    This presentation discussed KRNIC's .kr DNS deployment plan. KRNIC plans to establish an IPv6 .kr DNS query service, dual IPv4 and IPv6 network for .kr DNS, and an IPv6 .kr DNS trial service connecting with the KOREAv6 network.

    The presenter noted the cooperation between departments inside KRNIC for systematic implementation of this plan.

    KRNIC also plans to upgrade the domain registration system for IPv6 nameserver registration and to add an IPv6 search function in Whois.

    The trial service will be launched in cooperation with other organisations.

    The presenter also reviewed the proposed timeline for the deployment plan.

    Questions and discussion

    • There was a discussion about when Korean companies will be able to register IPv6 DNS records with this service. The presenter agreed to obtain the information and send a clarification to the IPv6 SIG mailing list.

    Action items

    • None.

  7. IPv6 deployment metrics using .JP service

  8. Kenichi Kanayama, Intec NetCore

    Presentation [pdf | ppt]

    This presentation discussed an approach for IPv6 deployment metrics. The Internet Association of Japan has a plan to investigate how to measure the degree of IPv6 deployment in Japan.

    Metrics will be developed to measure the scale of the IPv6 Internet, deployment ratio, stability, and characteristics and tendency of IPv6 traffic. The presenter reviewed the details of how each of these issues will be measured. In particular, he reviewed how .JP DNS records would be used to provide statistics on the amount of IPv6 service and support.

    The presenter displayed some data that has been compiled already. He noted that so far, about five to ten percent of online services in .JP appear to provide IPv6 support.

    Questions and discussion

    • There was a request to measure the host count as well as the number of allocations.
    • There was a discussion about an apparent anomaly in the ratio of .JP domains with IPv6 web support, suggesting that the amount of IPv6 support fell between June and July 2003. It was suggested that there may have been an error in the measurement. It was also suggested that the number of IPv6 services may still be so small that limited outages would show up as significant variations in the statistics.

    Action items

    • None.
