Market-based address allocation

See for a
paper on the subject. (We held a BoF at the IETF many years ago; there
was sufficient pushback that we didn't pursue the question.)

    --Steve Bellovin, (me) (2nd edition of "Firewalls" book)

I just *knew* such an obvious idea couldn't have been mine alone. :slight_smile:

When did you present your paper? The last reference I see is 1996.

What sort of pushback did you receive? Perhaps the experience of the past few years might suggest revisiting the question?

We held a BoF at the IETF many years ago

fyi - the mandate for the BOF was that the discussion had to
talk about a Market-based address allocation and concerving routing
table space at the same time

it was quite a good BOF
