I have objects in the RIPE Database. How can I protect them ?

You must protect your objects using a mntner (maintainer) object. It can authenticate changes by using one of several authentication schemes, such as your RIPE NCC Access (SSO) account or a PGP key. In order to set this up, you must first create a mntner object and then refer to it in the "mnt-by:" attribute in your object(s).
