Following up from the IPv6 RIPEness graphs we published earlier, those Local Internet Registries (LIRs) that fulfill all 4 IPv6 RIPEness criteria are now listed on the RIPE NCC web site.
After we initially started publishing IPv6 RIPEness information (as described in IPv6 RIPEness Update and Methodology ), we mentioned we would like to publish the list of '4-star LIRs'. After consulting with many of these LIRs we are now making the list of LIRs with 4-star IPv6 RIPEness publicly available:
This page is modeled after membership lists that were already published on http://www.ripe.net before.
To obtain this 4-star status an LIR has to:
- Get IPv6 address space from the RIPE NCC
- Have the address space visible in global routing
- Register a 'route6' object for this address space in the RIPE Database
Have reverse DNS for this address space set up
For more information on the IPv6 RIPEness study, please see a list of all previously published articles and statistics related to that topic: http://labs.ripe.net/topics/ipv6ripeness
We hope that publishing this list, will provide an extra incentive for LIRs that have not taken steps to deploy IPv6 in their networks.
