uh-oh! North America Runs Completely Out of IPv4 Internet Addresses

Sep 26, 2015
Two months ago, THN reported about a similar announcement made by The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), which said that the agency is no longer able to produce IPv4 addresses in North America . Within a time frame of few months, ARIN, which handles Internet addresses in America, has announced the final exhaustion of their free pool of IPv4 addresses has reached zero... ...i.e. the availability of IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) addresses no more exists. Meanwhile, they are going to accept requests for IPv4, which will be approved via two ways: Wait List for Unmet IPv4 Requests - Join the waitlist for unmet requests in the hopes that a block of the desired size will be available in the future. IPv4 Transfer Market - Can be purchased from another organization that has more than it needs. So, in the future, IPv4 address space will be allocated to the approved requests on the Waiting List for Unmet Requests, if ARIN: receives any IPv4 address spac

North America Runs Out of IPv4 Addresses

Jul 03, 2015
The Internet is running out of IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) addresses — a computer's unique address on the Internet. It's just become harder to get IPv4 addresses. IPv4 Exhaustion Gets Real. Is this the end of IPv4 addresses? Finally, North America ran out of iPv4 addresses and officially exhausted its supply of IPv4 addresses, joining Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), which is responsible for handing out Internet addresses, has warned that it is unable to fulfil a request for the allocation of large blocks of IPv4 addresses due to IPv4 Exhaustion of available address pool. On Wednesday, ARIN activated an " IPv4 Unmet Requests Policy " for the first time and placed a waitlist for companies that request blocks of IP addresses for their services. According to the ARIN, ISPs are left with only three choices: They can either accept a smaller block (limited to 512 and 256 addresses) They can jo

AI Copilot: Launching Innovation Rockets, But Beware of the Darkness Ahead

Apr 15, 2024Secure Coding / Artificial Intelligence
Imagine a world where the software that powers your favorite apps, secures your online transactions, and keeps your digital life could be outsmarted and taken over by a cleverly disguised piece of code. This isn't a plot from the latest cyber-thriller; it's actually been a reality for years now. How this will change – in a positive or negative direction – as artificial intelligence (AI) takes on a larger role in software development is one of the big uncertainties related to this brave new world. In an era where AI promises to revolutionize how we live and work, the conversation about its security implications cannot be sidelined. As we increasingly rely on AI for tasks ranging from mundane to mission-critical, the question is no longer just, "Can AI  boost cybersecurity ?" (sure!), but also "Can AI  be hacked? " (yes!), "Can one use AI  to hack? " (of course!), and "Will AI  produce secure software ?" (well…). This thought leadership article is about the latter. Cydrill  (a
