ebDiscussions in the region are still around management of the last IPv4 /8 block and the possibility of intra and inter RIR IPv4 address transfers. Following are the policy proposals that have been discussed on the rpd mailing list lately:

Internet Number Resources Audit

The proposal enables AFRINIC to conduct regular audits of resource utilization by membersin order to ensure efficient and appropriate use of those resources. This allows recovery of any type of resource where its usage is not in compliance with the Registration Services Agreement. Recovered resources can be reallocated to other members as appropriate.

Bio PhotoEarly security incident response teams often feel the need to replicate operations or approaches from other parts of the world instead of looking for homegrown solutions first. 

At the international level, much of information security operations are not standardized. While there are specification standards for technologies such as encryption and some sector specific requirements, cyber security does not have the level of standardization and regulation seen in other sectors yet. Much of the cyber security work today is done differently from organization to organization.

WFS profileICANN has initiated an in-depth study of the DNS ecosystem in Africa.

The study will identify the strengths and weaknesses in the DNS system in each country in Africa and will develop recommendations on how to advance the industry and bring it closer to the opportunities available. In simple words, to study the industry and then to advise how the industry can profitably grow. ICANN has engaged the Southern African Communications Forum (SACF) to carry out the study. They in turn, have assembled a team with deep experience of the African Internet environment.

In order to make this baseline study a success, we will require your input as set out below. This will help us to help you expand the domain name market in Africa for our collective benefit.
