IPv6 Internet Edge Architectures
The September 2012 IPv6 integration requirements for US government agencies boils down to IPv6 on the Internet edge. Mr. Popoviciu identifies the feasible architectural options for achieving IPv6 enablement, including the pros and cons of each choice - Ciprian Popoviciu, Nephos6 Inc.
IPv6 Systems Assessment
In addition 2012, agencies will continue their IPv6 integration process, culminating in full IPv6 deployment by 2014. To successfully make and track the transformation, each IT organization needs to fully understand their infrastructure and capabilities today, requiring continuous assessment - Ciprian Popoviciu, Nephos6 Inc.
One of the greatest changes in the IPv6 adoption process is coping with the IPv6 address space, including changing the way we conduct address planning. Mr. Lee gives participants a glimpse into the methods and processes for IPv6 address planning as well as highlighting the importance of IPAM - John Lee, Internet Associates, LLC.
Security issues for IPv6-enabled networks remains an area of concern for all v6 integrators. Mr. Klein has a decade of experience investigating, dissecting, and developing solutions for IPv6 security related issues. In this short presentation, Joe identifies many current issues, some of the challenges to be face now and in the future, and how the IPv6 defensive tool kit is evolving to provide IT security professional with the capabilities to achieve parity with modern day security practices - Joe Klein, Qinetiq, NA.
