IP Asset Attribution API Asset Discovery and Tracking Often business have numerous IP assets facing the internet. In complex enterprise networks, departments and services are constantly changing IP-prefix group assignments to support changing needs. Keeping track of IP assets, their attributes, and what they are used for can be a daunting task. The impact of not carefully managing IP assets can be significant. Misallocated or lost assets can lead to poor online customer experiences, untracked network costs, and asset hijacks. Policies can be error-prone or incomplete, and business reputation and revenues can suffer. To operate a global, highly accurate authoritative DNS service, Dyn is constantly collecting and geo-correcting IP assets. For over a decade, Dyn has developed methods to collect IP data from dozens of registries, validate data through BGP analysis, and geolocation to create a comprehensive IP asset data source. Through a simple, easy-to-implement RESTful API, businesses receive IP asset list and attribution details of internet-facing IP assets and partners' IP assets. Using this data, internet-facing IP asset discovery and tracking can be effectively accomplished.
