In February 2011, ARIN released an Operational Test & Evaluation
environment (OT&E) for users to familiarize themselves with and
practice using ARIN's RESTful Provisioning system. We are proud to
announce that Whois-RESTful Web Service (Whois-RWS) and Resource Public
Key Infrastructure (RPKI) instances have been added to OT&E. We now offer
five OT&E services, utilizing the following URLs in place of their
production counterparts:

whois.ote.arin.net - an OT&E Whois-RWS service
  www.ote.arin.net - an OT&E ARIN Online service
  reg.ote.arin.net - an O&TE Reg-RWS service
  rpki.ote.arin.net - an OT&E RPKI service
  updown.ote.arin.net - an OT&E Up/Down RPKI service

Note that any provisioning change in OT&E (via either the OT&E ARIN Online
or OT&E Reg-RWS service) will be reflected in
the associated directory/bulk data service (Whois-RWS or the OT&E RPKI

To request access to OT&E, log into your ARIN Online account and use Ask
ARIN to request access to the environment using "Other" as the message
topic. Once vetted, ARIN will grant OT&E environment access and send
additional usage instructions. For more information on ARIN's OT&E, visit:


We encourage all OT&E users to subscribe and participate on the
arin-tech-discuss at arin.net mailing list for information sharing and outage
information. Current OT&E users may continue to use the host
rest-beta.arin.net until 1 June 2014.
