Independent Survey on Trust in the RIRs

The University of Malta's Program in Internet governance is conducting
research on Trust in Internet governance. The ARIN community is invited
to complete a short, 15-minute survey on Trust in RIRs.

The independent (non-RIR initiated) survey was launched on 20 March 2015
and it ends on 30 March 2015. Participants are given an absolute
assurance of individual confidentiality.

RFP for West Coast Co-location Services

The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) is seeking proposals
for Internet Co-location providers for hosting services for ARIN
equipment and applications used in the operation of ARIN's public-facing
Internet services. Many of the services provided by ARIN are important
parts of the Internet infrastructure. ARIN is looking for sites that are
situated on the west coast of the United States or Canada.

The vendor must provide or allow:

   *  40 rack units of space for ARIN equipment.
   *  Access to transit providers of native IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity.
   *  Access to a peering fabric for peering with other networks.
   *  Environmental and security infrastructure at their facility.

Community Consultation on IRR Route Validation

The following suggestions submitted via the ARIN Consultation and
Suggestion Process (ACSP) are related to the topic of validation between
an Internet Routing Registry (IRR) and the ARIN registry database.

* 2015.3: Tie Route Objects in IRR to Netblocks of RIR Database
* 2014.30: Reflect Returns in IRR Data
* 2008.14: Construct Validated IRR Data

These suggestions may be found at:
https://www.arin.net/participate/acsp/index.html

In addition to these open suggestions, ARIN has noted recent increased
feedback from customers on this topic. This feedback includes direct
communications with ARIN customers on the topic and open discussions by
operator groups.

ARIN is opening this community consultation to obtain feedback on the
following questions:

* 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.
* If yes, should this effort be coordinated with other RIRs to help
facilitate cross-registry authentication?
* If yes, should this effort also support third party IRR route object
authentication?

Please provide comments to arin-consult@...

You can subscribe to this mailing list at:
http://lists.arin.net/mailman/listinfo/arin-consult.

This consultation will remain open through 5:00 PM EDT on Friday, 16
April 2015.

For Background and Consideration:

ARIN's current IRR offering is based on an old version of RIPE codebase
supplemented by custom scripts written by ARIN to work with our systems.
This older codebase is no longer supported by RIPE NCC, as they moved to
a new codebase several years ago. The current ARIN IRR does not offer
route object validation of any sort.

If ARIN staff were to enable IRR route object validation against the
ARIN registry database, it would likely require abandoning the current
ARIN IRR and moving to a completely new codebase. Creating a new ARIN
IRR with route object validation and solid synchronization with the ARIN
registry database would require a significant resource effort by ARIN.

It should be noted that an ARIN-only IRR project would not provide route
object validation across RIR registry databases, and there appears to be
a strong desire for cross-registry authentication.

The idea of enabling third party IRR route object authentication has
also been raised. This would allow non-RIR operated IRRs to conduct
route object authentication with the RIR registry database
If you have any questions, please contact us at info@...
