ARIN Internet Routing Registry (IRR) Upgrade

Posted: Fri, 11 Dec 2009

ARIN is pleased to announce an upgrade to ARIN's Internet Routing Registry (IRR) service. The upgraded IRR will now support route6 objects, allowing you to record your IPv6 routes within ARIN's IRR. This service is available over both IPv4 and IPv6 transports.

ARIN’s IRR will also check route authorization against the ARIN network and Autonomous System registrations and their organization and resource contacts. We are working on additional authentication methods and plan to eventually integrate the IRR service with ARIN Online.

All records that were added or modified during the pilot period have been retained and now are reflected in the public service. The aliases used in the pilot have been pointed to production but will be removed within two weeks.
