ARIN is pleased to announce the successful release of resource requests 
and Delegation Management via ARIN Online functionality and our RESTful 
Provisioning System.

Beginning today, all initial and additional requests for IPv4 and IPv6 
addresses and ASNs must now be submitted through ARIN Online. All 
correspondence on requests can be managed through your Message Center 
for easy tracking. You may also modify networks and ASNs using ARIN Online.

ARIN now supports per-delegation management of nameservers and the 
provisioning of secure delegations through Domain Name System Security 
Extensions (DNSSEC). Both nameservers and DS Records are managed via 
ARIN Online only. As part of the change to the per-delegation model, 
ARIN now also supports delegation searches in Whois. A brief tutorial 
has been created to assist you in using this new functionality:


ARIN's RESTful interface allows users to continue to automate their 
requests to ARIN while providing stronger authentication than mail-from 
authorization used with email templates. Users need an API Key to use 
ARIN's RESTful interface, and to have an ARIN Online account linked to a 
POC authoritative to make the request. Full details on the RESTful 
Provisioning system are available at:


For information on API Keys, refer to:


In addition to implementing the new per-delegation zone model for 
Reverse DNS and the RESTful Provisioning system, we also updated a set 
of templates that include an API Key field. You will need to go in to 
ARIN Online and create an API Key if you wish to use these templates. 
Your ARIN Online account must also be linked to a POC authoritative to 
make the request.

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 at:


Please note: Per requests from the community, ARIN now limits the ARIN 
Online functionality and database access available to invalid POCs 
identified by ARIN’s POC Validation Process (NRPM Policy 3.6). These 
changes are intended to further improve the accuracy of POC data in 
ARIN's Whois. Users must validate their invalid POCs prior to requesting 
services and database changes.
ARIN Online accounts provide access to all of the features listed at:
