On Monday, 4 April 2022, at 12:00 PM ET, ARIN retired its Non-Authenticated IRR as previously announced.

This is the culmination of a multi-year project to create and deploy a new and improved Internet Routing Registry (IRR). As a result of these efforts, ARIN now provides users with the ability to create, update, and delete objects in ARIN’s authenticated IRR database using ARIN Online or ARIN’s RESTful API.

On 8 February 2021, ARIN held a consultation to solicit input on the retirement of ARIN’s non-authenticated email-based IRR service. This retirement was originally scheduled for 30 September 2021. Based on community input, the proposed date for the ARIN-NONAUTH retirement was delayed to 31 March 2022 to allow more transition time for users. We also notified the Points of Contact of organizations who have objects in the ARIN-NONAUTH database to offer our assistance with the transition.

As of today, users will no longer be able to create, update, or delete records in the ARIN-NONAUTH database, the email template entry method will no longer be available, and the ARIN-NONAUTH data stream will no longer be available in Near Real Time Mirroring (NRTM) or via FTP or Whois Port 43.

If you have questions about this transition or need assistance, you can contact us by:

• submitting an Ask ARIN ticket or chat with us using your ARIN Online account
• contacting the Registration Services Help Desk by phone Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM ET at +1.703.227.0660
• emailing the Routing Security Team at routing.security at arin.net
