LACNIC, the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry, is an international non-government organization established in Uruguay in 2002, responsible for assigning and managing Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6), Autonomous System Numbers and reverse resolution for the region of Latin America and the Caribbean.
