That only makes sense when you compare an independent RR to RIR whois.
When you are comparing RIR Whois to RIR RR, the trust issue seems, to
me, at least, to be identical.

RRs already use PKI as one way to control authentication for submissions
of RR data.  I don't know what the ARIN RR uses, but, I do know that
is a valid method used by Merit RADB.


If it wasn't crypto-signed, it probably didn't come from me.
