<div class="content legacycomment"> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Hello everybody, </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> &nbsp; <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> I love this. I really do. We had such a hard time parsing whois output and creating our own </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Abuse Contact Database ( <a href="http://abusix.org/services/abuse-contact-db"> http://abusix.org/services/abuse-contact-db </a> ) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> &nbsp; <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> As soon as your service is online I will start to retire our service, for RIPE region. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> &nbsp; <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> But I have some suggestions and ideas that could make sense. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> &nbsp; <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Please have a look at the following 2 policy proposals: </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <a> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </a> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <a href="http://www.apnic.net/policy/proposals/prop-079"> http://www.apnic.net/policy/proposals/prop-079 </a> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <a> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </a> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <a href="http://www.afrinic.net/docs/policies/AFPUB-2010-GEN-002.htm"> http://www.afrinic.net/docs/policies/AFPUB-2010-GEN-002.htm </a> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> The APNIC was accepted and within AfriNIC the feedback was good enough to say that it will </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> probably pass as well. After that we would like to proposae the same policy to RIPE as well. </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> So if there is a mandatory IRT Object with 2 email addresses (e-mail attribute for personal </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> contact and abuse-mailbox attribute for mass reports) does this give you any trouble. Or do </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> I have to be carefull while adjusting the policy papers to RIPE? </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Another great feature would be a feedback API that gives users the opportunity to send you </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> feedback about accuracy of email addresses. For example, if an address is bouncing or not </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> existing, the API user could give you feedback and tell you that this email address is not working. </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> That way you could delete wrong addresses, contact owners, ... </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Think about the fact that there is only an IRT Object with the above mentioned 2 addresses </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> and none of them is working, if you get feedback, you could stop serving these specific addresses </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> and give back the addresses from the range above. That way reporters could report their stuff to </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> an existing, working address and the abuse department above will put pressure on the network </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> owner with wrong abuse departments. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> How about offering this as an DNS based service, where Users could query with 'host' or any </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> other easy to use tool. This would help a lot of people not to change their scripts to much. </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Our Contact DB is serving several million queries per day. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Other Use cases I could think of, would be </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> &nbsp; </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> IP(in) --&gt; ASN(out) </span> &nbsp; </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> IP(in) --&gt; CIDR(out) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> IP(in) --&gt; CC(out) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> CIDR(in) --&gt; smaller and bigger CIDRS(out) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> CIDR(in) --&gt; CC(out) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> CIDR(in) --&gt; ASN(out) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> ASN(in) --&gt; all CIDRS(out) </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> I hope this was not to confusing, but I thought, lets write down what is in my head at the moment. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> I think there is some other stuff up there, but I think this is enough for the moment. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Thanks again for this great idea and looking forward your feedback. </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> Tobias </span> </p> <p> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> <br /> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size: larger;"> </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family: Arial;"> abusix.org </span> </p> <p> </p> </div>
