The RDNS Project

There were two parts to the project:

  • The introduction of a new authorisation mechanism for domain objects
  • A clean up of inconsistencies between data in domain objects as stored in the whois database and reverse delegation information in the DNS



The RIPE NCC undertook a consistency clean-up between 7 January and 1 March 2004. This was necessary to use the whois database as an authoritative source for the generation of zone data.
