The CIDR Deployment Working Group will be a forum for
coordinating the deployment, engineering, and operation of classless
routing protocols and procedures in the global Internet. This activity
will include, but not be limited to:
- Deployment of CIDR addressing and routing in the global Internet.
Will include coordination of deployment of new exterior routing
protocols, such as BGP4, which support CIDR.
- Develop mechanisms and procedures for sharing operational
information to aim the operation.
- Development of procedures, policies, and mechanisms to improve
the utilization efficiency of the IPv4 address space.
- Work on longer-term strategies for hierarchical, CIDR-based
addressing and routing. Examples include class A subnetting and
provider block sub-allocation along geographical/topological
boundaries as is done for 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 in Europe.
Initially, this working group will be simply the reincarnation of the
BGP Deployment Working Group under a new name.
Establish final charter, goals, and long-term group agenda.
Provide forum for discussion of initial CIDR/BGP4 deployment on the global Internet.
Work on inter-provider coordination of routing in the CIDR environment.
Publish initial guideline document on CIDR allocation procedures (work in progress).
Start work on document of inter-provider routing coordination.
Begin work on document of aggregation guidelines.
Publish guidelines for usage of variable-length subnetting.
Begin work on document for long-term CIDR use, including subnetting of class As.
