We are excited to announce the launch of new ARIN in the Caribbean 2018 activities and open registration for our first two events in the following locations:
Similar to our ARIN on the Road events, these are one-day programs featuring information on our services, as well as how we can help you and your organizations design, secure, and maintain robust networks and contribute to Internet numbering policy development for the region.
ARIN in the Caribbean events are free to attend and offer a great environment to learn and share. The program includes presentations on timely topics such as obtaining IPv6 addresses from ARIN and transfers of number resources. In addition, there will be presentations on current policy discussions, ARIN technical services, and best practices for building resilient Caribbean networks.
The agenda for our upcoming meetings will cover the following topics:
- ARIN’s Mission and Core Functions
- ARIN Technical Services
- Policy Development at ARIN
- ARIN and Caribbean Network Autonomy and Resilience
- IPv4 Services – Waiting List, Transfers, and more
- IPv6 and ASN Services – Obtaining Resources, Creating Networking Plans
- ARIN Q&A – Open microphone to answer your questions!
Each day will conclude with an open microphone question and answer session, followed by a drawing for a $100 USD Amazon gift card for those who complete a short survey about the event.
Space is limited at each event, so if you are interested in attending one of our upcoming events please register on or before 2 February 2018!
If you are not available to join us in Grenada or Barbados, please visit our brand new ARIN in the Caribbean page for a list of other planned ARIN in the Caribbean events!

The Dutch National Cyber Security Centre has put a new version (2.0) of their IPv6 white paper online. It is written in cooperation with a number of experts from public and private organizations. Dennis Silva and I also helped out and our article “Niets doen is geen optie”, published in Computable 04-06-2012, was used as one of the references. This article was based on our own IPv6 white paper that we wrote last year and it provided interesting input for discussions on what transition scenarios are feasible and what risks they come with.
It was great to be part of this and I’m proud to see our names, and the company’s, being mentioned in the list of references and contributors. 🙂
The paper is published here: http://www.ncsc.nl/dienstverlening/expertise-advies/kennisdeling/whitepapers/ip-versie-6-ipv6.html
In this version of the IPv6 paper, there is more focus on security risks of migration scenarios. Depletion of the IPv4 address space means that everyone at some point has to decide on an IPv6 strategy. With every scenario, whether it is ‘doing nothing’ or going for a full native IPv6 implementation, comes risk. For instance, 6in4 tunnels can provide unwanted access into secured networks and the default enabled IPv6 in many OSes can provide unnoticed connectivity between nodes that are thought to be isolated.
This is a presentation I worked on which outlines IPv6 in Mission Critical Environments; typical environments of customers of Schuberg Philis.
