The fundamental operation of the Internet relies on the combined efforts of key organizations within the Internet ecosystem. Among these organizations are the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), which are responsible for the regional management of Internet number resources (IPv6, IPv4 and ASNs). This session will focus on the role of the RIRs, IPv6 deployment and why the future growth of the Internet depends on it, the importance of accurate Internet number resource registration data, and the RIRs’ collaboration with law enforcement agencies (LEAs). There will also be an update on the recent independent Address Supporting Organization (ASO) review and, one-year on from the IANA Oversight Transition, the impact of the changes implemented will be discussed.
