[arin-announce] Global Consultation on Identifier Technical Health Indicators (ITHI) Project

This message is shared on behalf of the Number Resource Organization
(NRO). We encourage the ARIN community to participate and provide
feedback to this global community consultation.


The Number Resource Organization (NRO) has developed a proposal for ITHI
risk identification and definition in response to an ongoing ICANN

Each Regional Internet Registry (RIR) is responsible for ensuring the
accuracy of its registry data. This is critical to the reliability of
the RIR Whois databases which provide access to the public data of the
Registry. For the purposes of measuring the state of the data, accuracy
has been defined as “comprehensive, correct, and current”. The
Registration Services coordination (RSCG) and Engineering coordination
groups (ECG) have developed recommendations for how the RIRs can
identify and measure risk associated with registry data accuracy.

We are now seeking feedback on the NRO ITHI project proposal,
specifically on the definition of the risks and measurements to report
on registry data accuracy.
Draft Proposal: Proposal for ITHI risk identification and definition.

The deadline for providing feedback: Tuesday December 12th 2017
