On 19 March, ARIN will deploy the biggest system update in the history 
of ARIN Online along with launching our new RESTful Provisioning system.
This deployment will change the way all customers do business with ARIN, 
and we want to take this opportunity to remind you of what is in store.

It is critical to note that all initial and additional requests for 
Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6, and ASNs) will only be processed 
through ARIN Online. This means you will be able to complete your 
request via an online form, upload any required documentation, and all 
subsequent communication, excluding securing officer attestation, will 
be tracked directly in the ticket history for the request. ARIN Online 
can also be used to submit IPv4 and IPv6 network modifications, ASN 
modifications, and for all types of POC and Org management.

Because there are a number of actions that customers prefer to automate, 
ARIN is also releasing updated templates (Version 5). This template set 
includes POCs, Orgs, reassignments, reallocations, and Network 
Modifications. The nameserver fields are being removed from the Version
5 templates; nameservers will be managed using the ARIN Online 
delegation management system. The new templates are available for 
preview at:


All templates will require the inclusion of an API key for added 
security and authentication. Details on API keys are available at:


All of the transactions that are available using the Version 5 templates 
can also be automated using the RESTful Provisioning system which will 
also be released at this time. Documentation on ARIN’s RESTful methods 
and payloads can be found at:


We have created a chart to help you visualize which actions can be 
performed via ARIN Online, RESTful Provisioning, and Version 5 
templates. The guide, Interacting with ARIN’s Registration Services, is 
available for preview at:


ARIN is also releasing the previously mentioned ARIN Online delegation 
management system. We have created a flash tutorial on the new DNS 
management interface. We encourage you to view the tutorial which 
demonstrates how to use ARIN Online for delegation management along with 
new DNSSEC functionality.


If you have further questions about these template changes or other 
upcoming features, please email hostmaster at arin.net.
