Update on the Community Consultation on CKN23-ARIN

Posted: Wednesday, 06 September 2017

ARIN has finalized an implementation plan to address the issues described in the CKN23-ARIN consultation that was originally opened 22 March 2017.

Based on community feedback, we have modified our original implementation plan as follows: 

  • Restore the resource POC back to its original state on the resource record. This will allow contacts historically associated with a resource record to more readily administer that record going forward.
  • Remove CKN23-ARIN as the Admin and Tech POC on the Org record and replace it with the original resource POC.
  • Retain the Abuse POC on the Org.
  • Lock all Org and Resource records that have had their resource POC restored on the Resource record and added to the Org record as the Admin and Tech POC. This will ensure that any changes made by the Admin/Tech/Resource POC will first have to be reviewed by ARIN.  Our intention is to interact directly with these affected Orgs so that we can obtain updated and accurate Whois information.

We plan to complete this project by the end of November 2017. ARIN thanks the community for its feedback on this matter.
