Practitioners. Please register using your agency-issued email.
July 27, 2021 The Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the American Registry for
Internet Numbers (ARIN) have joined together to develop a presentation
specifically designed for law enforcement focused on cyber security and the
roles our organizations play in helping to combat this ever-evolving problem.
ICANN helps coordinates the names and numbers that are used as unique
identifiers in the global Internet. It is tasked with helping make sure that the
Domain Name System (DNS)
remains stable, secure, and
resilient. Carlos Alvarez, Director of Trust and Public Safety Engagement at ICANN,
will provide an overview of security threats that target the DNS or that leverage
it to attack others, and will share about anti-abuse efforts on the DNS and the
domain name landscape that are relevant to law enforcement.
The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) is a nonprofit,
member-based organization that supports the operation and growth of the Internet. ARIN
accomplishes this by carrying out its core service, which is the management and
distribution of Internet number resources such as Internet Protocol (IP)
addresses and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs) within its defined service region:
Canada, the United States, and many Caribbean and North Atlantic
islands. Investigating fraud and abuse in the registry is of utmost importance accurately and
reliably maintaining registration information is core to ARIN’s mission. Number
resource fraud threatens community trust in the registry and reduces the value
of the registry to those who rely on it for network operations.
Leslie Nobile, Senior Director of Trust and Public Safety at ARIN, will provide
an overview of the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) system and how it fits into
the larger Internet ecosystem. She will discuss IP address fraud and abuse, RIR
due diligence, tools that can help support law enforcement investigations, and
RIR cooperation and collaboration with law enforcement.
