RIPE NCC has published information related to law enforcement requests they got during 2015.
In total they got:
None of the requests came with a court order (or similar) from a Dutch court. RIPE is a Dutch entity, so subject to Dutch law.
What of the requests themselves?
They fall into two categories:
- Information that is public
- Information that is not public
The “public” information is often (based on reading and seeing these kind of requests) for information that is in the RIPE database or similar.
Without a court order from a Dutch court RIPE isn’t going to hand over the non-public information.
