New Bulk Whois Terms of Use (ToU) Implemented

ARIN is pleased to announce the release of the new Bulk Whois Terms of
Use (ToU). On 26 April 2012, ARIN concluded its consultation with the
community with regards to the updated ToU, which aligns standard service
language across all ARIN service agreements and clarifies permissible
and impermissible uses of the Bulk Whois data.

The new ToU can be found, along with the Bulk Whois Request form, at:
https://www.arin.net/resources/agreements/bulkwhois.pdf

Existing Bulk Whois users will be sent the new ToU this week. The new
ToU must be signed and returned to ARIN within 30 business days in order
to retain access to the service. Users who do not return a signed ToU
will have their Bulk Whois access disabled.

All new Bulk Whois applicants will be required to sign and comply with
the new ToU before they are granted access to the service through ARIN
Online.

Leslie Nobile
Director, Registration Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Global IPv6 Survey Closes 13 July

Many thanks to those who have rallied to the call to complete the 2012
IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey. Response rates in the ARIN region are
currently lower than 2011, but there is still time to meet our
participation goals! The survey will be closing 13 July, so if you
haven’t yet, we would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to
complete the survey at:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GlobalIPv6survey2012

Your feedback is crucial to expanding the understanding of where the
Internet community is moving, and what can be done to ensure readiness
for the widespread adoption of IPv6. The survey is composed of 23
questions and can be completed in about 15 minutes. For those without
IPv6 allocations or assignments, or who have not yet deployed IPv6, the
questions will be fewer in number.

On behalf of ARIN and GNKS Consulting, we thank you for your time and
interest in completing this survey. If you have any questions concerning
the survey, please send an email to info@...

Preparing for Phase Two of the IPv4 Countdown Plan

If you currently monitor the status of the "IPv4 Space Available"
counter on the ARIN homepage, you may have noticed that it has moved
increasingly close to the 3 /8 equivalent mark, the point at which ARIN
will initiate Phase Two of its IPv4 Countdown Plan. We just wanted to
take a moment to remind you of what will be changing in ARIN's IPv4
request process once we reach this milestone.

Phase 2 is business as usual for all IPv4 requests smaller than /16, but
if your organization is requesting a /16 or larger, there will be some
differences in the way request processing is handled.

All /16 and larger IPv4 requests will be placed in the IPv4 Review Team
queue, and will be reviewed in the order they were received according to
their timestamp. Because each correspondence will be processed in
sequence, it is possible that response times may exceed the usual
two-day turnaround.

There are also several important distinctions for the post-approval
portion of the IPv4 request process. Once a request is approved, the
requestor will have 60 days to complete payment and return a signed RSA
(if applicable).  If payment and signed RSA have not been received by
the 61st day, the ticket will automatically close, the address space
will be released back into the available IPv4 pool, and a new request
will need to be submitted. This change to the approval window from 90
days to 60 days will apply to all IPv4 requests, but not to IPv6 and ASN
requests.

One last change relates to the amount of time that ARIN will hold
recovered IPv4 resources prior to reissuance. The hold time for all
returned, reclaimed and revoked IPv4 resources will be reduced from six
