Wednesday, October 29th began with the following parallel activities:

LAC-IX Meeting

LAC-IX, the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Exchange Point Operators Association, promotes networking in Latin America and the Caribbean. Its goals include increasing Internet traffic within the region and supporting governments in terms of policies, statistics, and advice relating to Internet traffic exchange. Today, the Association held a meeting in the Atacama Room from 9:00-12:30 (local Chile time).

LACNIC Public Policy Forum

This forum was moderated by Carlos Plasencia and included important presentations regarding potential updates to the policy development process. The first policy discussed at the forum (LAC-2014-2) proposes a modification to the text describing ASN allocation requirements. It was authored by Jorge Lam and seeks to clarify and simplify LACNIC's ASN assignment process. This proposal achieved consensus and will enter the last-call-for-comments period, after which the LACNIC Board will be able to ratify the policy.

The second policy discussed today (LAC-2014-3) seeks to update the Policy Development Process. It was authored by Ricardo Patara and seeks to establish terms and responsibilities for the process. It was decided that a new version of the proposal will be submitted excluding the text on a potential appeals process and sent back to the list for further comments.

Carlos Martinez, part of LACNIC's staff, then gave a presentation describing certain voids LACNIC has detected in the region's policies with the intention of encouraging the community to present new proposals aimed at eliminating these voids and cleansing the Policy Manual.

After the forum, there was a consultation session on the IANA functions' stewardship transition which was moderated by three community representatives: Jorge Villa, Rafael Ibarra and Esteban Lescano.  For more information on this process, please visit: http://www.lacnic.net/web/lacnic/iana-transicion

LACNIC CEO Ernesto Majó then presented a general update on LACNIC, during which he addressed several issues such as the transition of the IANA functions' oversight, IPv4 exhaustion within the LAC region, and how the number of LACNIC members has grown.

At 10.30 am, Ernesto Majó moderated an introductory panel on the IANA functions' stewardship transition with the participation of relevant authorities such as Pablo Hinojosa (APNIC), John Curran (ARIN), Harmut Glaser (ASOC AC), Gonzalo Navarro (ICANN), Rodrigo de la Parra (ICANN), and Pedro Ivo Silva.

This panel summarized the Regional Consultation process on the transition of the IANA functions' oversight in Latin America and the Caribbean, in other regions, and the overall coordination process between the various Internet community stakeholders. The panel concluded by describing the final step of the process within the IGC.

Rodrigo de la Parra, ICANN Vice President for Latin America and the Caribbean, noted the importance of this meeting for the region and thanked LACNIC for including it in the event's agenda. He also invited participants to submit their comments and participate in the process.

Harmut Glaser highlighted how important it is for the IANA functions' stewardship transition to follow a set of principles.

John Curran, ARIN CEO, explained the entire consultation process, what the Consolidated RIR IANA Stewardship Proposal Team (CRISP Team) will do, and how all RIRs will be involved and should promote the participation of their communities.

The next activity scheduled for the day was the panel on "Strengthening Regional Internet Infrastructure." Made up by ICANN, AEPROVI, NIC.CL, LAC IX, and Dyn Research representatives, this panel covered topics such as BGP Routing-RPKI, DNSSEC, submarine cables, and traffic exchange points.

During the afternoon, participants attended the ION Conference, an event that brought together network engineers and industry experts for the purpose of discussing emerging technologies, including IPv6 and DNSSEC. ION conferences allow network operators to stay ahead of the learning curve and deploy emerging Internet technologies. It also provides a unique opportunity to discuss the future of the Internet with the people who helped create it.

Presenters included Álvaro Retana (CISCO), Chris Grundeman (Internet Society), Arturo Servín, Carlos Martínez (LACNIC), Jan Zorz (Internet Society), Rodrigo Arenas (NIC Chile), and Max Larson Henry.

This Monday, October 27th 2014, almost 300 participants attended the first day of the meeting and completed their registration at Universidad Católica de Chile, where they received their materials and participated in the five parallel tutorials included in the program. We would like to thank the participants from more than 28 countries throughout the region who joined us today in Santiago.

We invite you to read a recap of the activities completed each day during the LACNIC 22-LACNOG14 meeting, which will be available daily on the event's website (eventos.lacnic.net/lacnic22).

Six technical tutorials were presented today at 9:00. More than 200 participants attended these six tutorials, which are briefly described below.

 General Introduction to IPv6
Alejandro Acosta and Jan Zorz presented a brief introduction to IPv6 implementation at the university's main lecture hall.

IPv6 in Mobile and Fixed Access Networks
Instructors: Santiago Aggio, Ariel Weher

This tutorial explained different technologies and techniques used by fixed and mobile last-mile access providers to deploy IPv6. Other topics were also discussed, including dual stack vs. NAT vs. tunnels, and different methods for IPv6 assignment and deployment in fixed and mobile networks, among others.

Instructors: Eduardo Mercader, Mauricio Vergara, Gonzalo Romero

This tutorial was presented at Auditorium No. 2, where participants were introduced to the basics of DNSSEC and conducted hands-on activities that allowed them to become familiar with the operational aspects of this technology.

Internet Numbering Resource Management
Instructor: Gianina Pensky

This tutorial was designed for representatives of organizations that are already LACNIC members, who were able to learn how to use LACNIC's Resource Management System, register sub-allocations to third parties, use the Whois service, update a block's or an organization's contact information, and delegate a block's reverse resolution.

BGP Routing, RPKI, Anycast
This tutorial was divided into two sessions. During the first session, the basics of the BGP protocol were presented and basic operational aspects within carrier environments were discussed. The second session introduced some of the latest trends in routing security, particularly origin validation using resource certification (RPKI).

During this tutorial, various aspects of the IETF were described so that newcomers could understand how the IETF works. Considering that most of the IETF's work is conducted on the various working groups' mailing lists, participants were encouraged to become involved in the lists relating to their areas of expertise.

The first day at the lecture hall came to a close with a session where Ernesto Majó, LACNIC's Interim CEO, welcomed more than 80new participants and explained the dynamics of LACNIC meetings.

A partir del día 28 de octubre habrá traducción simultánea al portugués, español e inglés.
