Policy Compliance Dashboard (Internship@AFRINIC)

dashAFRINIC is the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) which allocates public Internet number resources (IP prefixes and AS numbers) to network operators in Africa. Resources are allocated based on prescribed policies as defined by the CPM (Consolidated Policy Manual). However, it was observed that in many cases some clauses are not duly followed/implemented by resource holders.

This project proposes to build up a dashboard, which will inform AFRINIC hostmasters on the status of a resource holder and its level of compliance with AFRINIC policies.
