We received an overwhelming response to our call for feedback in the design of a community-driven process toward achieving transition of NTIA’s Stewardship of the IANA Functions. From the launch of the public comment process in Singapore two weeks ago through last Thursday, we received numerous ideas on principles and mechanisms and are now incorporating […]

我们特此传达此项来自马里兰大学的同仁提供的关于DNS 根服务器之一 IPv4 地址变更的公告。 这是一项预先通知,计划变更针对 DNS 根区域和 .ARPA TLD 列出的机构之一的 IPv4 地址。该变更针对由马里兰大学管理的 D.ROOT-SERVERS.NET。 此机构的新 IPv4 地址为 199.7.91.13。 此机构的当前 IPv6 地址为 2001:500:2d::d 并将继续保持不变。 此变更预期于 2013 年 1 月 3 日在根区域中实施,但新地址当前已开始使用。它将取代之前的 IP 地址 128.8.10.90(也称为 TERP.UMD.EDU)。 希望 DNS 基础架构运营商更新对旧 IP 地址的任何参考,并用新地址取代。具体地说,许多 DNS 解析器具有 DNS 根”提示”文件。应使用新 IP 地址更新此文件。 一旦变更正式执行,可从以下 URL 获取新的提示文件: http://www.internic.net/domain/named.root http://www.internic.net/domain/named.cache 变更后旧地址将继续工作至少六个月,但最终将失效。

IPv6 – Enabling the Internet’s Future Growth

by Elise Gerich on February 3, 2011

In 1995, on behalf of the IAB and IANA, I wrote a document called “Unique Addresses are Good” (RFC 1814). The Internet community had begun to worry about the depletion of the IPv4 address space at that time and the IAB and IANA started taking steps to slow the distribution of IPv4 addresses. One of […]

Selecting which /8 to allocate to an RIR

by Leo Vegoda on September 9, 2009

I’ve previously written about the problem with IPv4 /8s which have been used to number IP networks in an unofficial and improper way. The problem is that the unofficial usage makes it more difficult for ISPs to bring these addresses into use when they are officially allocated and so less desirable. But we have to […]
