ARIN Bits: September 2017

By Kim Kelly

We’re back with the next edition of ARIN Bits! In case you missed the first one, ARIN Bits is a quarterly e-news update that is distributed via email to our community to keep everyone in the loop on the latest happenings here at ARIN.

We always encourage feedback on the information we provide. Feel free to reach out to us at info@arin.net with your thoughts. Enjoy the bits below!


ARIN 40 is next month! Are you ready?

We are! We hope to see you in San Jose, CA from 5-6 October at the Fairmont San Jose, directly following NANOG 71 in the same location. This will be a great opportunity to engage in policy discussions, network with colleagues, learn more about our services, and attend workshops and tutorials. If you can’t be there in person, remote participation is always an option. You can view the agenda for ARIN 40 and register online as either an in-person or remote attendee.

ARIN Elections open 5 October!

Are you ready to get your vote on? Elections for two seats on the ARIN Board of Trustees and five seats on the ARIN Advisory Council will be held online 5-13 October 2017. View the candidates and their biographies or submit/view statements of support.

When it comes time to vote, eligible Voting Contacts from General Members in Good Standing should log in to ARIN Online and look for the “Vote Now” message on the dashboard. If you have any questions about elections, email members@arin.net.

We have several policy proposals under discussion, including:

  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-3: Update to NPRM 3.6: Annual Whois POC Validation
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-4: Remove Reciprocity Requirement for Inter-RIR Transfers
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-5: Improved IPv6 Registration Requirements
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-6: Improve Reciprocity Requirement for Inter-RIR Transfers
  • Draft Policy ARIN-2017-8: Amend the Definition of Community Network

You can find the status of current policy discussions on our Draft Policies and Proposals page and subscribe to ARIN-PPML (Public Policy Mailing List) to voice your opinions. Membership is not required to participate!

September 2017 Deployment Items

We’ve redesigned and improved some of our pages in ARIN Online, including:

  • Account/Profile Setup and Confirmation
  • Your Account > Settings > Security Info: Manage Two-Factor Authentication and Manage API Keys
  • Your Account > Organization Identifiers > Organization > Manage Voting Contact
  • IP Addresses > Search > Network > View and Manage Networks > Delete Network

We also modified the Transfer > Mergers and Acquisitions Transfers (NRPM 8.2) page based on changes to the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM), resulting from the implementation of Recommended Draft Policy ARIN-2016-9.

The notification email that is sent to a Point of Contact (POC) when removing the POC from an organization now includes the POC Handle. (ARIN Suggestion 2017.2)

The form to submit suggestions to ARIN as part of the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process has been revised to clarify that submitters can choose to remain anonymous and that contact information is not published. (ARIN Suggestion 2017.12)

The “No Valid POC Resource Report” has been updated to include the date the POC was last updated, the invalid POC handle, and invalid POC name. (ARIN Suggestion 2016.09)

The ARIN RPKI Trust Anchor has been modified to reflect all holdings (0/0) to fulfill our commitment set by the Number Resource Organization (NRO) for all of the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). See the “All Resources Applicability Statement” dated 21 January 2017.

The 2017 Inter-RIR and Specified Transfers of Internet Number Resources page has been replaced by the Statistics: Specified Transfers of Internet Number Resources page. This page provides data on completed transfers in HTML format, and can be sorted based on selected criteria.

Meet the ARIN 40 Fellows

By Erin Scherer

We’re so excited to welcome the 15 new and returning fellows that will be joining us in San Jose, California for ARIN 40 this October! Since 2009, we have welcomed 83 fellows to our Public Policy and Members Meetings to expand our educational outreach and add new voices to our public policy discussions. We’re proud to see that number grow to 98 with our most recent additions. We had the chance to get to know our fellows a bit better in preparation for ARIN 40, and thought our community would like to learn more about them too!

We asked our fellows to share with us why they decided to apply, or reapply, for a fellowship.

Barb Carra explained she applied not only due to suggestions from her colleagues, but also because she is “extremely interested in learning more about the ARIN mandate and grassroots approach to developing policy.” Bartlett Morgan said he had been encouraged to apply in the past, but decided to apply now because he has “started representing clients who make use of ARIN’s number resources, so it was of practical value to better understand how ARIN’s processes operated.” Christopher Regan was encouraged by a friend to apply and said, “I believe that I could learn from and make valuable connections with the other attendees, and contribute based on my prosecutorial background.” We are happy to hear that many of our new fellows were encouraged by friends and co-workers to apply.

Returning fellow, Austin Murkland, is glad he decided to reapply after his “incredible experience” attending ARIN 39. Nancy Carter says she reapplied for an ARIN fellowship because “when ARIN 39 was over I knew that I wanted/needed to go to the next meeting. ARIN is a community that I want to be part of and contribute to.” Gerard Best, based out of Trinidad and Tobago, explains “I was able to attend an ARIN on the Road event in Dominica and have been looking forward to the removal of ARIN’s domicile requirements ever since. When the announcement was made, I immediately applied.” And we’re so glad you did, Gerard!

We were curious to learn what our fellows hoped to gain by attending ARIN 40. Frank Bulk looks forward to “networking with other folks in the industry,” and Loris Taylor wants to “learn more about what makes up the Internet technical community” as well as “the technologies, resources, and services used to run the Internet.” Jose de la Cruz said “learning from the experts about IPv6 and DNS is always a rich experience,” and Glenn McKnight hopes to gain “a more in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of ARIN.” The great news is we plan to provide all of this and more for our fellows and attendees at ARIN 40!

An important part of being an ARIN fellow is learning how you can contribute to the ARIN community after your fellowship is over, so we asked our fellows what their future plans are. Barb Carra hopes to broaden her depth of knowledge related to policy that governs our use of the Internet because she believes “it’s important to share this information with our Canadian community to improve awareness and adoption of good practice.” Kerrie-Ann Richards explains “the Internet is the future and I need to be on the ground floor of policy. There is little awareness of ARIN in the Caribbean and I will be more able to lead discussions that have an effect on the needs of persons/entities from developing nations.”

Jeremy Austin has already started following policy development much closer than before and says “If I have experience or knowledge that can expand the pool, I look forward to contributing, particularly concerning community networks.” Rudi Daniel plans to “continue to participate on the PPML, and as the Caribbean region matures, I am able to contribute more.” And Adrian Schmidt believes by attending ARIN 40 it will “help me grow and be more valuable for my main place of work (a small university located in the middle of Alberta) as well as be a resource for others.” We look forward to seeing how all our fellows will remain involved and active in the ARIN community after San Jose!

We asked our fellows to summarize their feelings about being selected in one word, and the responses we received include:

  • Thankful (Loris Taylor)
  • Elated (Glenn McKnight, Kerrie-Ann Richards)
  • Ecstatic! (Frank Bulk, Jose de la Cruz)
  • Encouraged (Jeremy Austin)
  • Excited (Rudi Daniel, Barb Carra, Christopher Regan)
  • Spectacular! (Austin Murkland)
  • Phenomenal (Cesar Oscar Cordero Casilla)
  • HOORAY! (Nancy Carter)
  • Delighted (Adrian Schmidt)

We can already tell this is going to be a great group of fellows who are eager and ready to get involved in policy discussions and networking at ARIN 40.

Congratulations once again to our ARIN 40 fellows. We can’t wait to see you all there!

P.S. The ARIN Fellowship Program for ARIN 41 in Miami, Florida 15-18 April 2018 is now open for applications!
