ARIN Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) Pilot Program

Posted: 6 July 2009

On 1 July 2009, ARIN made a Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) pilot program available to the community. The service will allow various ISPs that receive resources from ARIN to start evaluating the emerging RKPI standards from an operational perspective. It also provides a venue for feedback for ARIN as well as the standards community.

The pilot program has four components; it:

  • Enables ARIN members to request certificates for their IPv4 and IPv6 Provider Aggregatable (PA) resources.
  • Allows ARIN members to manage Route Origin Authorizations (ROAs) for their PA address space.
  • Provides a public repository of certificates and ROAs.
  • Handles key rollovers and revocations.

To participate in the pilot program, you can do two things:

This is a non-production service.  ARIN will strive for 24/7 availability, however unknown issues or problem reports may necessitate unannounced outages of the service.  If you are unable to access this service, please wait for a period of time and try the system again later.
