External Relations

Internet Governance

ARIN is an active participant in Internet Governance. ARIN participates in Internet Governance activities through involvement in many international organizations and multi-stakeholder forums.

Law Enforcement & Public Safety

ARIN works closely with law enforcement and public safety organizations in order to help them gain a better understanding of how the Internet registry system works and how some of our services and tools may be able to help them accomplish their mission. Some of the ways ARIN supports law enforcement include information sharing, the provision of Whois and its publicly available registration data, case support, and capacity building and training.

Technical Community

ARIN is part of the Internet technical community, working closely with the other RIRs as well as organizations like the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG). ARIN staff members participate in these community meetings throughout the year.
