From today, the RIPE NCC performs registry functions for IPv6 Endpoint ID (EID) prefixes for Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP). LISP is an experimental "map-and-encapsulate" protocol developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force's (IETF's) LISP Working Group. The IANA has assigned an IPv6 prefix for LISP EID space in accordance with RFC7954, which the RIPE NCC is now managing in accordance with RFC7955.

- RIPE NCC Supplies Feedback to ITU Study Group on Internet of Things
Following a liaison statement that the RIPE NCC received on behalf of Study Group 20 of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), we recently supplied our feedback to the group. The Study Group is set to study the "IoT and its applications, including smart cities and communities (SC&C)". The RIPE NCC was invited to participate because the group is working to develop recommendations that relate to IPv6. A similar liaison statement was received by our colleagues at the other RIRs. As a Sector Member of the ITU, the RIPE NCC has attended the previous meetings of Study Group 20 and will continue to follow the development of these recommendations closely.
- Verisign to Provide Secondary DNS Services for the RIPE NCC’s Zones
In July we published a Request for Proposals (RfP) for a trusted third party to provide secondary DNS services for the RIPE NCC's zones. Following our announcement, we received three final proposals by the conclusion of the process. We selected the best fitting proposal based on the technical and non-technical requirements in the RfP document. We'd like to express our gratitude to all parties who submitted proposals.
