ARIN will begin the first phase of Suggestion 2008.15 by immediately 
accepting requests for historical WHOIS data ("WHOWAS") on AS number and 
IP address registrations. Requests should be submitted via e-mail to 
hostmaster at arin.net and must include details about the registration in 
question and the reason for the request.

Please note that ARIN may have limitations on the availability of the 
data, particularly in cases where it in not available to ARIN. 
Restrictions may be placed on third party requests.

As ARIN gains experience with these requests, it reserves the right to 
institute some form of an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) and to limit the 
number of requests that can be made by any single entity, related to 
both the number of requests and period of time for requests.

You will find ARIN's initial response to this suggestion on the website 
at: http://www.arin.net/acsp/suggestions/2008-15.html

If you need any assistance or have questions, please contact us at 
hostmaster at arin.net.

ARIN should offer a "WhoWas" service similar to the current whois 
offering, that would allow folks to query a historical assignment record 
for a given IP or ASN.
