[arin-announce] Consultation on ACSP 2018.3

ARIN info at arin.net
Wed Mar 28 17:16:49 EDT 2018

ARIN has received a suggestion requesting Whois queries made from "http"
be automatically redirected to "https" in order to make the queries more
secure. It has also been suggested ARIN consider using HSTS for Whois
services. These suggestions were made through ARIN's Consultation and
Suggestion Process and are documented at the following URL:

Question:  Should ARIN automatically redirect user Whois queries made
via "http" to "https"?

Question:  If ARIN redirects http to https requests, should ARIN then
use HSTS for web-based Whois queries?

The feedback you provide during this consultation will help inform how
ARIN will proceed in response to ACSP 2018.3. All messages that have
been sent to the arin-consult mailing lists in response to this
suggestion prior to the opening of this consultation will be included in
our feedback collection resulting from this consultation. Thank you for
your participation in the ARIN Consultation and Suggestion Process.
