ARIN continues its preparations for offering production-grade resource certification 
services for Internet number resources in the region.  ARIN recognizes the importance 
of Internet number resource certification in the region as a key element of further 
securing Internet routing, and plans to rollout Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI)
at the end of the second quarter of 2011 with support for the Up/Down protocol for those 
ISPs who wish to certify their subdelegations via their own RPKI infrastructure.

ARIN continues to evaluate offering a Hosting Resource Certification service for this 
purpose (as an alternative to organizations having to run their own RPKI infrastructure), 
but at this time it remains under active consideration and is not committed.   We look 
forward to discussing the need for this type of service and the organization implications 
atour upcoming ARIN Members Meeting in April in San Juan, PR.
