Ingrid Wijte, RIPE NCC, started day 2 of the South Summer School on Internet Governance. Here are some notes:
In 1992 the RIPE NCC was created by the community, with no legal entity, an open community with no formal membership. The bulk of the work is done by working groups, like the address policy working group.
Some services such as the distribution of addresses are public, while the database management is a service for members.
Addresses are received from IANA and distributed to customers.
The RIR system was put in place at the time that people realized that IP addresses were going too fast. In the case of IPv6 this is not a concern because of the large space of resources.
Roughly the same in all five regions. Principles:
- open, anyone can participate
- transparent, discussions take place in mailing lists
