Below is a request from the IAB with a request to transition the IN-ADDR.ARPA generation from ARIN to ICANN.
Subject: [IAB] Transition of IN-ADDR arpa generation. Date: Fri, 30 Jul 2010 14:49:33 +0200 From: IAB Chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Rod Beckstrom <email@example.com> CC: John Curran <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Axel Pawlik <email@example.com>, "firstname.lastname@example.org IAB" <email@example.com>, Elise Gerich <firstname.lastname@example.org> Rod Beckstrom, Dear Rod, The IAB requests that the generation and administration of in-addr.arpa be performed by ICANN as a technical work item per the existing ICANN/IETF MOU (RFC2860), and further described in "Management Guidelines & Operational Requirements for the Address and Routing Parameter Area Domain ("arpa")", BCP 52 (RFC 3172). ARIN is the agent of the Number Resource Organization (NRO) for performing this task today, and has agreed to transition this task to ICANN as described in the previous paragraph. As the operator of this registry function we respectfully request that ICANN work with ARIN to facilitate this transition, and that the community be kept aware of the transition, particularly as it relates to any operational considerations that may arise. Please do not hesitate to contact myself or John Curran at ARIN if there are any questions. For the IAB, - --Olaf Kolkman IAB Chair - ----------------------------------- The Internet Architecture Board www.iab.org email@example.com
