APNIC recently participated in a Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) workshop in Wellington, New Zealand as part of an ongoing effort to support and collaborate with LEAs in the Asia Pacific region.
APNIC has a fundamental role to play in the stability and security of the Internet, ensuring the APNIC Whois Database and reverse DNS zone delegations are accurate, reliable, and up-to-date. As the Asia Pacific Regional Internet Registry, APNIC adopts and applies policies that address network abuse, and actively raises awareness about the need for responsible network management in the region through training and outreach.
Champika Wijayatunga, APNIC's Training Manager, gave a presentation on the services APNIC provides to assist LEAs; in particular, the use of publicly available data on the APNIC Whois Database. This data could assist LEAs in our region as it can help with troubleshooting, tracing sources of abuse, and protecting address space from instances of hijacking.
