ARIN Contributes to IETF Endowment

The Internet Society (ISOC) recently launched the IETF Endowment to 
provide the IETF with direct financial support aimed at ensuring 
long-term, sustainable funding for the development, evolution, and use 
of open Internet protocols.

ARIN stands behind the work of the IETF and the thousands of volunteer 
contributors from around the world who work to develop and maintain the 
open protocols that make the Internet possible. In January of this year, 
the ARIN Board of Trustees 
( approved 
contributing up to two million dollars to the IETF Endowment, reflecting 
this strong commitment by the ARIN community to the Internet protocols 
and related work of the IETF.

Today, ARIN has made an initial contribution of one million dollars to 
the IETF Endowment. This was done in coordination with contributions 
from other RIRs and the Internet Society. ARIN will undertake a second 
contribution of similar amount at a later date, in conjunction with 
additional organizations contributing financial support to the endowment.

Details about the IETF Endowment can be found online at:

New ARIN Fee Schedule Implemented Today

Today ARIN implemented the new Fee Schedule adopted by the Board of 
Trustees on 10 December 2015. The new fee schedule is the outcome of a 
community-comprised fee review panel and community consultation process. 
The new Fee Schedule includes the following changes:

*Creation of four new service categories; 3X-small, 3X-large, 4X-large, 
and 5X-large; these are intended to further recover ARIN's costs across 
a broader set of service categories that more closely align with the 
benefits received
*Realignment of the IPv6 and IPv4 resource limits for each category to 
provide for more cost-effective IPv6 fees
*End user, ASN-only, and Legacy organizations may now choose to receive 
additional ARIN services via a Registration Services Plan (the same 
services and fee package provided to ISPs)  – those which do so become 
ARIN Members (with associated voting rights in ARIN elections) as well 
as the capability to report reassignment information and/or provide 
utilization data via the Shared Whois Project (SWIP)

These changes further balance overall fees so that customers receiving 
comparable services are paying comparable fees where feasible, and also 
enable a reduction in many cases to the fees for smaller ISPs.

The new Fee Schedule is available at:

Please review the Fee Schedule FAQ for details on the changes:

ICANN and Regional Internet Registries Sign SLA for the IANA Numbering Services

This message is sent on behalf of the Number Resource Organization (NRO)

ICANN and Regional Internet Registries Sign SLA for the IANA Numbering 

Helsinki, Finland – 29 June 2016. The RIRs and ICANN signed the Service 
Level Agreement (SLA) for the IANA Numbering Services today at ICANN 56 
in Helsinki, Finland. This agreement documents the arrangements for 
provision by ICANN of IANA numbering services, after the IANA 
stewardship transition which is expected to occur on 30 September 2016. 
The SLA will only come into effect with the transition, and will have no 
effect whatsoever before that time.

This event is a significant milestone in the long process of transition 
planning which started in March 2014 with US Government announcement. 
The process involved huge efforts by the Internet number community 
collectively, and by teams formed specifically to carry out the work.

In particular the NRO Executive Council expresses its sincere thanks for 
the contribution by CRISP members during the last year and a half in the 
IANA Stewardship Transition Process. The CRISP Team worked tirelessly to 
integrate and consolidate the views from the five different regional 
communities into a single proposal. As the work of the CRISP team is now 
finally complete, we hereby announce that the team is formally dissolved.

Finally the NRO EC also wishes acknowledge the support of the ICANN 
Board and staff who worked hard with us to finalise the SLA and ensure 
it was completed on time.

The final version of the SLA is available at:

ARIN Vault for Historical Content

When you visit the ARIN website in search of historical information like 
reports from Public Policy & Members Meetings and Public Policy 
Consultations, meeting minutes for the Advisory Council and Board of 
Trustees, ARIN public announcements going back to 2002, and a range of 
corporate documents, you will find yourself in ARIN's Vault.

The ARIN Vault was developed to provide an easily searchable, accessible 
repository for historical documents. Navigation between the Vault and is designed to be seamless. Navigation on is 
unchanged, and each Vault page has a "Return to" tab on the 
left border of the display. The Vault has its own internal navigation to 
make it easy to research historical documents, and changes have been 
made to our site's search functionality to enhance user's ability to 
search for archival content. Over the next few weeks, you'll begin to 
see links directly to the Vault in search results.

You can start looking through the Vault at:

As part of this content migration, we have moved to a simple, responsive 
design that is easily accessible on phones and tablets. We have also put 
in place redirects that will hopefully ensure bookmarked links or links 
from other websites do not break, but if you run across a broken link or 
other issue, please let us know at webmaster@...
