Today, ARIN published a new Relying Party Agreement (RPA) for RPKI.

Background: In response to feedback from the community, ARIN had
previously updated its processes to allow organizations to directly
download our Trust Anchor Locator (TAL) from our website, noting that by
doing so they were agreeing to be bound by the RPA. This was intended to
accommodate and overcome claimed barriers to RPKI adoption.

Today’s new RPA includes modifications to address constructive
suggestions that have been raised by members of the community both
publicly and directly with ARIN. ARIN has included the following changes
in the RPA:

 *  The ability to make available the ARIN RPKI information to any
third party for informational purposes (e.g. reporting, educational,
research, summary or statistical purposes) has been expanded to allow
for distribution in machine-readable formats; and

 *  The RPA’s indemnification clause has been more narrowly scoped to
exclude the indemnification of possible ARIN misconduct.

ARIN has also now made a Redistributor RPA available for qualified
organizations that wish to distribute RPKI-related data for purposes not
covered in this standard RPA, including but not limited to distribution
for real-time routing purposes. Interested organizations should contact
ARIN via the information available on the Trust Anchor Locator page on
our website.

ARIN hopes that these additional changes to the RPA, alongside
simplified access to the TAL, will encourage organizations’ adoption of
RPKI to secure Internet routing.
