Library Framework Setup for IPv6

San Joaquin Valley Library System IPv6 Case Study The San Joaquin Valley Library System (SJVLS) is a ten jurisdiction, joint powers agency in central California, and we are IPv6-ready.

Taking a Hard Line on Fraud

An emergent IPv4 transfer market and IPv4 address scarcity have led to increased attempts to fraudulently obtain IP addresses. In late 2018, ARIN uncovered an elaborate scheme to defraud the Internet community of approximately 735,000 IPv4 addresses, and ARIN responded in accordance with community-developed policies and through legal means pursuant to those policies. ARIN is committed to protecting the resources entrusted to us.  We recently issued a press release regarding the outcome of a landmark…

How does ARIN handle reports of Route Hijacking?

Internal process for handling route hijacking reports With increased interest in BGP hijacking (also known as “route hijacking”), we thought it might be helpful to explain how we currently handle these reports. First of all, the Registration Services team receives route hijacking complaints from many different sources including other RIRs, customers, people that report them on network operator mailing lists (e.g. NANOG), SPAM enforcement companies, fraud reports entered on the ARIN website, feedback reports and…

Economic Factors Affecting IPv6 Deployment

Despite more than a decade of evangelism on behalf of IPv6, the Internet community has not yet succeeded in moving the world to a new networking standard. Technologies like NAT and secondary markets for IPv4 numbers have introduced major economic efficiencies that have extended the life of IPv4. Along with the absence of backward compatibility, it’s not really correct to call the IPv4-IPv6 transition a migration; rather, it’s a standards competition. And we need to understand better the…

It may not feel like it, but the Internet has been on the verge of seizing up for years.

And, just as cities adopt vertical building techniques to create more space, technicians have created a way out- IPv6. What is IPv6? IPv6 is the latest form of the Internet Protocol (IP), which provides a…
