> Today ARIN and ICANN are jointly working on the transition of the technical management function for the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone from ARIN to ICANN. ARIN carried out the DNS zone maintenance function for IN-ADDR.ARPA since 1997 and worked closed with ICANN throughout the transition period.
> Immediately upon transfer to ICANN, the IN-ADDR.ARPA zone will also be signed using DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC), providing end-users with the ability to validate answers to reverse DNS queries. The IN-ADDR.ARPA zone is also in the process of being moved from twelve root servers to dedicated nameservers operated by the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) and one operated by ICANN.
