Summary

This proposal seeks to delete the NS records pointing to the authoritative nameservers of the resources listed for recovery two months after their inclusion on the list, to completely remove their reverse resolution and draw the attention of the users to whom these resources have been assigned

Rationale

Sometimes, contact with the organization to which resources have been assigned is completely lost.

Having no other way to draw their attention to the resources and their irregular situation as regards either LACNIC or one of the RIRs, this proposal seeks to delete the NS records pointing to the authoritative nameservers of the resources listed for recovery. This means that the organizations or users will have a reason to contact LACNIC or the corresponding NIR.

Text

Modify the following paragraph in section 7.1 of the Policy Manual:

Current text:

===============

If the situation cannot be rectified, LACNIC shall publish the resource that is to be recovered for a period of three months. During this period, the organization may rectify the situation with LACNIC. After this period, the resource shall be recovered and therefore the records of the previous holder of the recovered resource shall be deleted from LACNIC’s database.

===============

New text:

===============

If the situation cannot be rectified, LACNIC shall publish the resource that are to be recovered for a period of three months. During this period, the organization may still rectify the situation with LACNIC.

Two months after the resources are published, LACNIC shall proceed to delete the NS records pointing to the authoritative nameservers of the resources involved. This information may be recovered once the organization contacts LACNIC or the corresponding NIR.

If three months after the resources are published the organization has not rectified the situation, the resources shall be recovered and the records of the holders of these resources shall be removed from LACNIC’s database.

===============

Additional Information

NS records must be maintained until the recovery process has been completed so that they can be restored if the organization involved contacts LACNIC or the corresponding NIR.

Timetable

Subject to the analysis by LACNIC staff and the NIRs on handling reverse resolution information.

LACNIC STAFF´S IMPACT ANALYSIS - Proposal LAC-2017-6 - version 1

LACNIC Staff's Interpretation of the Proposal
---------------------------------------------

Applicability of Section 7.1:
---------------------------
This section will apply to organizations that enter the resource recovery process.

Modifications to the current text and comments by LACNIC staff:
----------------------------------------------------------------
According to the modifications included in policy proposal 2017-6, the Policy Manual would undergo changes in the sections listed below.

• Section 7.1 - “Resource Recovery” would be modified.
7.1- Resource Recovery
(…) If the situation cannot be rectified, LACNIC shall publish the resource that is to be recovered for a period of three months. During this period, the organization may rectify the situation with LACNIC.
Two months after the resource is published, LACNIC shall proceed to delete the reverse resolution information of the listed resources. This information may be recovered if the organization rectifies its situation with LACNIC.
If three months after the resources are published the organization has not rectified the situation, the resources shall be recovered and the records of the previous holder of the recovered resources shall be removed from LACNIC’s database. (…)

LACNIC Staff Comments:
• We recommend implementing this proposal as a way of forcing the organization undergoing the revocation process to contact LACNIC or the NIR before the final removal of their resources.
We believe this additional warning is a good practice and another, more direct method of contact prior to the final removal of the resources.

• We suggest making it clear in the text that the proposal is to eliminate the NS records pointing to the authoritative servers of the resources involved, thus leaving those resources without any reverse resolution.

Implementation of the Proposal
-------------------------------
The proposal could be implemented immediately.

Impact of the policy on the registry system and the addressing pool
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This proposal does not require any modification to the registry system.
