Evil Bit and Spread Spectrum IP Addressing - NANOG Source Address Shaping

Common Misconception: One additional bit of IPv4 Addressing will solve
world hunger

The Evil Bit (or spare unused bit) can be used to store (restore) one bit

The Left-Most bit of the 32-bit Source Address Field can be SET to
Zero no matter what the original value. The Evil bit can be set IFF
the Left-Most bit is **changed**.

Setting the Left-Most bit to zero **folds** this table in half.

Setting the Left-Most bit to ONE would move return traffic to the
upper half of the Spectrum which has vast quantities of unused /8s

Wide-spread consensus shows that TWO bits can work. Three bits folds
the table to 1/8th.
Governments want a 4-bit Return Prefix to their Super-Hubs for
IPv6-like intercept.

The U.S.FCC is expected to issue the regulations on how Spread
Spectrum Source Address Shaping will work in their licensed CPE
wireless devices. There are 160-bits
in the deprecated header so there are many ways to go.

One-Way Broadcast IP Addressing is now available. The Source Address
Field is used
for the second half of the 64-bit Destination Address. The DF (Did
Flip) bit near the Evil
Bit is used to note the two halves of the Destination Address have
been *flipped*.
NANOGers simply route 32 and then 32 after the flip based only on the
Destination Field.
There is no Source Address, only a channel (port).

Great, that's another filter to add to my mailserver.


Why not just fold source and destination into a single 64 bit end
station address field, and use the evil bit to say whether or not the
packet is going to, or coming from, google. We could call it IPv5, or
IPv4++. and I am sure the merchants would have it in silicon within a
week. Sadly this is a few weeks too early for people to be seriously
thinking of an RFC for this.

Why does everyone keep falling for the same address collector ? :wink:

I'm sorry but I have failed to understand the grammar of these bizarre posts. Is it just me or do they actually make very little sense?

What is perhaps scary is that I know somebody who talks just like that (i.e. makes little sense) and I really thought it may be them... It isn't because they died last year, but still, who knows..

UNaltered REPRODUCTION and DISSEMINATION of this IMPORTANT information is
strongly ENCOURAGED.
