However, your point is taken and ARIN shall endeavor to make terms and conditions for use
of the TAL and the ARIN repository clearer in this regard.

As alluded to above, the attached ARIN announcement from today notes that the ARIN RPA has now
been updated (again) specifically to improve its clarity regarding the ability to distribute the ARIN TAL.

On 26 September 2022, ARIN announced changes to the way we manage our Trust Anchor Locator (TAL), and specifically changes to our Relying Party Agreement (RPA) that support this change. Community members responded with questions about these changes as they relate to the ARIN TAL. The RPA has been updated once more to clarify that public distribution of the ARIN TAL, including by embedding the ARIN TAL in Relying Party software, is specifically allowed.

The updated RPA is available for review:


RPA Redline:

We hope this addresses concerns raised by members of the community seeking clarification regarding the use of the ARIN TAL. Thank you to the community for the constructive feedback.
