ARIN Services Working Group Update on the RIR's IRR (Internet Routing Registry)

Aaron Hughes indicated that many discussions had been taking place regarding ARIN's IRR services.  Recently, he had discussions with industry security folks during NANOG 68 regarding an IRR toolkit. They supported providing IRR tools that would make the use of the existing IRR better. An example would be tools that would make egress filtering easier to IRR users.

The President noted that ARIN staff had put IRR development activities on hold, and were awaiting further guidance.
