Introducing the RIPE NCC Roadmap

We often get asked about the status of our different services and projects, and while we frequently publish updates on RIPE Labs, we now have a new tool that makes it easier to stay informed.

Presenting Object Metadata in the RIPE Database: Object Tags

Password Management in RIPE Database
Kaveh Ranjbar — 09 Nov 2011

Passwords are the most used authentication method in the RIPE Database. This mechanism has two major design problems. The MD5 hash is public, when running a single query (not for bulk queries). And in case of email updates, plain text passwords are sent by email to update the database. Find below some recommendations on how to secure your objects until these issues have been addressed.… Read more
