NAME

Net::Whois::Object::Mntner::APNIC - an object representation of the RPSL Mntner block

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

Objects in the RIPE Database may be protected using Mntner (pronounced maintainer) objects. A Mntner object specifies authentication information required to authorise creation, deletion or modification of the objects protected by the Mntner.

Objects are protected by a Mntner, if they contain a reference to the Mntner in the object. This is done by including a mnt-by attribute. Other attributes offer hierarchical protection. The mnt-by attribute is mandatory in all object types. Most users set the mnt-by value in a Mntner to reference itself.
