On 17 March 2020, we notified our community via a blog post on TeamARIN 
that we were in the process of developing a new web-based Internet 
Routing Registry (IRR). That blog post can be read at the following link:


Now, we are pleased to announce that the initial deployment of this new 
web-based IRR will occur on or around 10 June 2020.

This deployment will provide core functionality to create, edit, and 
delete IRR objects via ARIN Online. The existing IRR-email interface 
will continue to function; however, when your organization begins using 
the web-based IRR, you will lose access to the email interface. For that 
reason, if your organization would like to retain access to the email 
interface, please do not make any changes to IRR objects using ARIN Online.

As part of this deployment, ARIN will analyze data in the current IRR 
before migration and objects will be placed into two categories:

* Objects that were created by the authorized organization and meet all 
ARIN requirements will be migrated to the new system and placed in an 
authorized dataset (“ARIN-AUTH”). They can be managed in either ARIN 
Online or via email templates. (Note that using ARIN Online the first 
time to manage these objects will permanently disallow future changes 
using email templates.)

* Objects that cannot be verified will still be migrated, but placed 
into a non-authorized (“ARIN-NONAUTH”) dataset. These objects can be 
managed only by using email templates or by creating a Help Desk Ticket 
using the Ask ARIN feature in ARIN Online.

Users who get routing data from ARIN’s IRR will need to make some 
changes when connecting to our two Near Real Time Monitoring (NRTM) 
streams: ARIN-AUTH and ARIN-NONAUTH. Port 43 whois queries to 
rr.arin.net will still be accepted and return both authorized and 
unauthorized objects. More information will be provided in later updates.

Best regards,

John Sweeting
Chief Customer Officer
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)
