IRR Route Validation Consultation Extended to 24 April

Posted: Wednesday, 15 April 2015

ARIN has extended the discussion period for the community consultation about its Internet Routing Registry service. The new closing date is Friday, 24 April.

ARIN is seeking feedback on the following questions:

  1. Should ARIN begin a new project to enable IRR route object validation to the ARIN registry database?
    If this consultation results in support for moving forward in this area of work, it will be taken under advisement by the ARIN Board of Trustees for consideration as a new area of priority by the ARIN organization. If approved, ARIN staff would participate in community-driven initiatives in this area, and using information gathered from these initiatives and this consultation, produce a specific proposal to move forward.
  2. If yes, should this effort be coordinated with other RIRs to help facilitate cross-registry authentication?
  3. If yes, should this effort also support third party IRR route object authentication?
