Abstract

The purpose of this document is to catalog issues influencing the efficacy of Internet Routing Registries (IRRs) for inter-domain routing policy specification and application in the global routing system over the past two decades. Additionally, it provides a discussion regarding which of these issues still pose problems in practice, and which are no longer obstacles, but whose perceived drawbacks continue to stifle inter-provider policy-based filtering support and IRR utility to this day.

          Considerations for Internet Routing Registries (IRRs)                     and Routing Policy Configuration

Abstract

   The purpose of this document is to catalog issues that influenced the    efficacy of Internet Routing Registries (IRRs) for inter-domain    routing policy specification and application in the global routing    system over the past two decades.  Additionally, it provides a    discussion regarding which of these issues are still problematic in    practice, and which are simply artifacts that are no longer    applicable but continue to stifle inter-provider policy-based    filtering adoption and IRR utility to this day.
