Registration Services Audit Reports

ARIN periodically engages an independent firm to conduct a full review and audit of the Registration Services Department's processes and procedures to ensure consistency with the policies described in the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM). In the most recent audit, the following areas were examined:

  • Assess ARIN's current Registration Services Department (RSD) processes against ARIN's Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) in the following areas:
    • Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, transfer, and database record maintenance (both public and internal) for version 4 (IPv4) and version 6 (IPv6)
    • Fraud detection, prevention, and follow-up
    • Autonomous system number (ASN) allocation, transfer, and record maintenance
  • Review ARIN's Countdown Plan and procedures in anticipation of exhaustion of IPv4 resources
  • Follow-up on prior recommendations made during the 2011 audit
  • Test specific tickets, on a sample basis, from all types of customer requests to validate that NRPM requirements and internal procedures are consistently followed
