                    draft-housley-rfc2050bis-01.txt

Abstract

   This document provides information about the current Internet Numbers
   Registry System used in the distribution of globally unique Internet
   Protocol (IP) address space and autonomous system (AS) numbers.

   This document also provides information about the processes for
   further evolution of the Internet Numbers Registry System.

   This document replaces RFC 2050.

   This document does not propose any changes to the Internet Numbers
   Registry System.

1.  Introduction

   The administrative structures of the Internet Numbers Registry System
   described in this document are largely the result of the interaction
   of operational practices, existing routing technology, number
   resource assignments that have occurred over time, and network
   architectural history.  Further discussion and analysis of these
   interactions are outside the scope of this document.

   This document does not propose any changes to the Internet Numbers
   Registry System, but it does provide information about the current
   Internet Numbers Registry System used in the distribution of globally
   unique Internet Protocol (IP) address space and autonomous system
   (AS) numbers, while also providing for further evolution of the
   Internet Numbers Registry System.

   This document replaces RFC 2050.  Since the publication of RFC 2050,
   the Internet Numbers Registry System has changed significantly.  This
   document describes the present Internet Numbers Registry System.

2.  Goals

   Internet number resources are currently distributed according to the
   following (non-exclusive) goals:
