A local Internet registry (LIR) is an organization that has been allocated a block of IP addresses by a regional Internet registry (RIR), and that assigns most parts of this block to its own customers.[1] Most LIRs are Internet service providers, enterprises, or academic institutions. Membership in an Regional Internet registry is required to become an LIR.
