RESTful ROA Request Generation Now Available

Posted: Saturday, 1 February 2014

ARIN is proud to announce that Hosted Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) certificate holders may now programmatically submit ROA Requests via ARIN's RESTful API. We hope that this will benefit customers who want to take advantage of ARIN's Hosted RPKI, but have large resource sets that make web-based ROA Request generation infeasible.

ARIN is committed to providing a rich set of APIs to help community members access ARIN services, including directory and provisioning/registration services, and we hope that the community will benefit from this work by building tools that will allow for easier automated interactions with ARIN in the future.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to develop RPKI and other important services for the community.
