Changes in the way out-of-region objects are managed and represented in the RIPE Database

LACNIC informs the technical community that RIPE has decided to modify its Internet Routing Registry (IRR) policy, and that this measure may affect organizations based in Latin America and the Caribbean which use this service provided by the RIR for Europe and the Middle East.

As reported, the RIPE community has decided that its Routing Registry will no longer support the creation of non-authenticated out-of-region objects. Existing out-of-region objects will have their “source:” attribute changed to “RIPE-NONAUTH”.

This new policy may affect LACNIC region members who have created objects in the RIPE Internet Routing Registry (IRR).
