Day Two: Highlights From Tuesday
Tuesday’s first plenary session featured updates from each of the other four Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), the Number Resource Organization (NRO) and the Address Supporting Organization (ASO) Address Council (AC), as well as a presentation of joint allocation and assignment statistics from the five RIRs (PDF).
In the second plenary session of the day, Benno Overeinder presented the preliminary results of NLNetlabs Secure Routing Survey (PDF) and asked for feedback. Leslie Daigle’s presentation on ISOC’s IPv6 Deployment Day (PDF) was well received and prompted some discussion. Per Blixt from the European Commission presented the preliminary finding of the Commission’s IPv6 study and its Action Plan for Deployment of IPv6 in Europe (PDF). There was lots of interest in the findings and he asked that people provide him with their feedback on the study.
