From Paterva Wiki
IP addresses are normally grouped together. This group is called a network or netblock. A netblock has a start IP and an end IP. Thus examples of networks are 188.8.131.52-184.108.40.206 or 192.168.8.0-192.168.15.255. There are several notations for describing the same range of IP addresses. The network 220.127.116.11-18.104.22.168 can be described as 22.214.171.124/16 (CIDR) or 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.0.0. In Maltego we use the startIP-stopIP notation. A netblock of IP numbers are normally given to an organisation such as an ISP. Individuals (such as home users) normally get an IP number from the ISP. Thus - the IP number's information (such as whois information) will point to the ISP and not the individual.
