SWIP - Networking
Shared WHOIS Project
According to whois.arin.net, the purpose of a SWIP is as follows:
- Updates WHOIS to show which organization is using the assigned IP address space.
- Provides a point of contact within the organization to which the IP space is assigned.
- Tracks whether a provider has exhausted or is about to exhaust its current CIDR block allocations such that an additional allocation may be justified.
