PPML Community - 
Based in part on feedback received at the Philly Public Policy Meeting, ARIN is now 
offering a trial WhoWas service that provides historical registration information for a 
given IP address or ASN. This trial period will run until the production system is 
deployed, and will serve to provide much needed data to assist ARIN in defining the 
scope and use for this service.  Details on the trial WhoWaS service are available here: 

It's important for ARIN to receive input from the community to get a better understanding 
of how WhoWas would be used as a production service.  To that end, we are currently 
conducting a consultation on this matter, and ask that anyone interested in the service 
take the time to either email or fill out the survey regarding their needs for the WhoWas 
production offering.  Information on participating in the WhoWas consultation are here: 

Thanks! (and Happy Holidays :-)

President and CEO
