Suggestions for Improving Abuse Contact Management
Denis Walker — May 05, 2014 04:25 PM

The aim of the policy Abuse Contact Management in the RIPE Database (RIPE document ripe-563), was to make available an abuse contact for all resources maintained by the RIPE NCC. The RIPE NCC proposed an implementation plan that was accepted. During the deployment there has been some feedback on the practicalities of the implementation. At RIPE 67 the RIPE NCC agreed to think about this feedback and present some further options.

Simplified Route Creation in the RIPE Database
Denis Walker — Oct 04, 2013 11:20 AM

Creating route objects just got a whole lot easier! Forget about hassle across organisations. Now you can submit the object with the passwords you have, and if it needs more, we will sort it out. The software will decide who else needs to authorise it and contact them. When they send in their passwords, we will match them up and create the object. Then we let everyone know the result – whether it’s a success or failure. Can it get any easier than this?
