It appears ARIN also likes unfiltered configs or access to read unfiltered configs in routers, which provides much more detailed information concerning the network than the required justification (snmp communities, firewall rules, encrypted passwords). This would also cover the privacy issue of smaller customers.
ARIN does not require unfiltered access to configs; feel free to
redact snmp communities, encrypted passwords, secret filter rules,
and similar data.
> It would also be nice to place limits on if the data itself is kept by ARIN or purged. Does ARIN really need to keep private data indefinitely versus keeping that such data was received and signed off on by a representative? I'm not sure how long such data is currently kept. Perhaps John can say.
We keep ticket data indefinitely (because it supports the accuracy
of the registry) but have standard record retention policies for
other data (e.g. emails with supporting data) In the ideal world,
your request and a supporting note from staff of review of technical
data would be kept for long-term integrity, and we would purge any
other non-request data after 2 years. As it is, emails to hostmaster
are associated with tickets (as they may be requests or supporting
information) and are retained indefinitely as well.
We've just established a fairly major records retention program, and
need to figure out how to expand that to include request supporting
data in a way that makes sense. For now, your tickets and hostmaster
emails are retained, and everything else (e.g. email direct to me)
is on a two-year retention. My preference would be to provide you
visibility (eg. via ARIN online) into old supporting data, but we
may have to set up a system which works well for new requests and
manually go through the past records and remove any now unneeded
