Technical Requirements

(IP Network)

In order to connect an RIRS node to an IP network, the following requirements must be met:

Physical Requirements:

(1) rack unit of space

(2) 110-240VAC power feeds

(1) 250W of power

(1) 1G (fiber-optic or copper) or 10G (fiber-optic-only) connection for production DNS traffic

(1) 1G (fiber-optic or copper) or 10G (fiber-optic-only) connection for management

Connectivity Requirements:

IPV4 IPV6
  • The partner must provide two discrete connections (one for production traffic, and one for system management functions, both with full IPv4 transit capabilities).
  • The partner must provide a /30 (or /31) for the point-to-point (production) interface addressing.
  • An eBGP adjacency must be formed between Verisign’s RIRS server and the adjacent partner router across the production interface.
  • Via eBGP, Verisign will advertise a subset of the prefixes contained within the AS-GTLD IRR object, as well as the /28 noted below.
  • The partner router will advertise a single default route toward Verisign’s RIRS server via eBGP.
  • The partner must provide a /28 for management services, which Verisign will advertise via the eBGP session mentioned above.
  • The partner must provide a /29 for management interface addressing. Verisign will configure a static default route toward the partner’s router.
  • The partner must provide two discrete connections (one for production traffic, and one for system management functions, both with full IPv6 transit capabilities).
  • The partner must provide a /126 for the point-to-point (production) interface addressing.
  • An eBGP adjacency must be formed between Verisign’s RIRS server and the adjacent partner router across the production interface.
  • Via eBGP, Verisign will advertise a subset of the prefixes contained within the AS-GTLD IRR object, as well as the /64 noted below.
  • The partner router will advertise a single default route toward Verisign’s RIRS server via eBGP.
  • The partner must provide a /64 for management services, which Verisign will advertise via the eBGP session mentioned above.
  • The partner must provide a /64 for management interface addressing. Verisign will configure a static default route toward the partner’s router.

Configuration Requirements:

Verisign will run BGP with the hosting network across the production interface.

Verisign will expect to receive a single default route via BGP.

Verisign will configure a static default route toward the hosting network over the management interface. This interface will be used for system management operations only. No production DNS traffic will transit this interface.
