    RIPE Changing Policy to Support Wide-Spread AC ?

    [address-policy-wg] Policy Change Request - Allow address allocations for anycast DNS operation
    From: Andreas Bäß/Denic
    Date: Tue, 8 Jun 2004 12:17:35 +0200

    In the background I had some discussions with several people what is the
    wording for the policy to reflect the discussions that we had on RIPE 47.

    I think the outcome of these discussions reflect pretty well what I can
    So I would like to ask the workinggroup what you think.

    "Operators providing DNS for a zone that is approaching the UDP packet
    size limit due to the number of authoritative servers may be assigned
    PI network prefixes: a /24 IPv4 prefix and/or a /32 IPv6 prefix. These
    prefixes will allow them to anycast the DNS server, as described in RFC

    Have a nice day

    Re:Where did the ICANN Board Approve Any-Cast Root
    by KarlAuerbach on Tuesday June 08 2004, @06:21PM (#13731)
    User #3243 Info | http://www.cavebear.com/
    ICANN's board never considered, much less decided any question with regard to anycasting of DNS roots.

    Rather the question was silently abandoned to the judgement and action of the root server operators themselves. Fortunately for the net these are thoughtful and capable folks. Unfortunately for the net these folks are mortal, run out of money, and are not in any way constrained from taking other actions (such as selling their roles or offering differential services or data mining).

    ICANN should have been overseeing these matters. But ICANN has abandoned its post.
