Important Update Regarding Resource Certification

Posted: Thursday, 2 December 2010

We previously announced that ARIN intends to provide a production-grade Resource Certification service starting 1 January 2011.  As a result of an extensive review in preparation for offering this service, we have determined that additional functionality must be added to the service architecture to mitigate specific security concerns.  These features will delay ARIN’s production release until very early in the second quarter of 2011.  We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause ARIN participants; however, we think you will like the result.  In the meantime, the ARIN community is encouraged to join ARIN’s Resource Certification pilot as an interim measure.  This pilot has been in place since June 2009.  For more information concerning Resource Certification and ARIN’s pilot program, visit
