ARIN has issued its initial response to ACSP Suggestion 2015.3. The 
suggestion and response text are provided below. This suggestion remains 
open and is available at:



Communications and Member Services
American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN)

Suggestion: *

The ability to tie route objects in the ARIN's IRR to netblocks of the 
RIR database. This would allow for IRR objects to be marked as 
authorized against a known trusted source.

Value to Community: There has been an issue with the validity off IRR 
information in the ARIN region. In other regions the RIR's have provided 
coupled IRR and RIR data to provide strong provenance.

Within the operator community there is increasing demand for trustworthy 
IRR data to improve the integrity of the routing system.

The ARIN community would benefit from Operators being able to protect 
themselves in a more meaningful way.


Thank you for submitting your suggestion, numbered 2015.3, on the topic 
of tying route objects in ARIN's IRR to netblocks of the RIR database. 
We have a community consultation planned for Q1 2015 to discuss this and 
other IRR related suggestions recently submitted. We will ensure the 
language of your suggestion is included in the consultation that will 
open in March.
