We already have that “central IRR” in the form of the likes of the RADB Whois server. RIPE’s data is the odd one out here. RIPE is the _only_ IRR source where we cannot differentiate between authenticated data and non-authenticated data. For all other sources we know that either the route objects have been authenticated against the inetnum’s specified maintainer (APNIC, AFRINIC, JPIRR) or is entirely without such verification (ARIN, NTTCOM, ALTDB, RADB itself, etc). The value of the data in the RIPE DB would significantly increase if this difference is shown. Kind regards, Job > -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
