China has been working on China ’s Next Generation Internet (CNGI) for years, and will be unveiling it at the 2008 Olympics. This is a quicker, extra secure and more mobile form of the existing one. At the core of this technology is Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).  Beyond China , a global move to IPv6 is in progress as well. 

In the United States, the Department of Defense declared in 2003 that they would move to IPv6 by the year 2008. They have been and continue to be at the forefront of the IPv6 transition process in the US.  Consequently, the Office of Management and Budget has issued a directive that federal agencies must make the transition to IPv6 by the same year. 

At this point, with the deadline looming, agencies have a few key issues that need to be addressed for the transition to be smooth and comprehensive  The first is ensuring interoperability with the network as they move from IPv4 to IPv6, and the second is maintaining security of the network throughout the transition and beyond.  Advances in hardware, software, and telecommunications have assured that the transition will be successful.

Take away points include:

  •  What are the necessary procedures for a smooth transition to IPv6 within Federal agencies?
  • How has the DoD tackled the transition and what are the next steps?
  • Strategies for overcoming interoperability failure
  • Preparing for future products that will depend on IPv6
