[arin-announce] ARIN Switching to ASPLAIN Notation, 13 March 2009

Tue Mar 10 09:01:31 EDT 2009
With the publication of RFC 5396, the IETF standardized the
representation of all Autonomous System (AS) Numbers in the ASPLAIN
format. In order to comply with this new standard, ARIN will be
deprecating AS-DOT notation for 4-byte AS numbers in favor of ASPLAIN
notation on March 13, 2009, at approximately 10:00PM EDT. This event
will not interrupt any ARIN-provided services, and the only noticeable
change will be to the display of 4-byte AS numbers in ARIN WHOIS.
Please note that ARIN WHOIS will continue to accept queries in both
ASPLAIN and AS-DOT notation.
You can view RFC 5396 at: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5396
