1. Reaserch the following organizations and explain their involvement with the internet public IP addresses.
A. The American Registry for Internet Numbers or ARIN for short was established in 1997 and is one of five Regional Internet Registry’s or RIR’s for short. ARIN Manages the distribution of IPv4 and IPv6 as well as the Autonomous System Numbers or ASN’s for the givin reagion which includes the united states and Canada, as well as most carribian and northern atlantic islands. As one of the five RIR’s in the world ARIN maintains constant communication with the Number Rescource Organization or NRO for short. Although the internet is a world wide network not coordinating at a central point of access, there are still several things that must be internationally coordinated in order for the internet to function smoothly. This is the task of The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority or IANA for short, it is a part of The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. The IANA plays a big part in our internet, they manage the DNS Roots, domain names, internet protocols, and globally pools IP addresses and ASN’s and reports back to RIR’s. Their mission statement is as follows “The IANA team is responsible for the operational aspects of coordinating the Internet’s unique identifiers and maintaining the trust of the community to provide these services in an unbiased, responsible and effective manner.” Another one of the RIR’s is the Asain Pacific Network Information Centre or APNIC for short. The APNIC’s region is Asaia as well as Australia and New Zeland, Antartica and outlying western islands. Like ARIN, APNIC is tasked with the fair distribution of IPv4 and IPv6 adresses and the ASN’s for their region and are a part of the NRO.
