The Internet operates by transferring data in small packets that are independently routed across networks as specified by an international communications protocol known as the Internet Protocol. Each data packet contains two numeric addresses that are the packets origin and destination devices. Since 1981, IPv4 has been the publicly used version of the Internet Protocol, and it is currently the foundation for most Internet communications. The Internets growth has created a need for more addresses than IPv4 is capable of. IPv6 allows for vastly more numerical addresses, but switching from IPv4 to IPv6 may be a difficult process.This book is your ultimate resource for IPv6. Here you will find the most up-to-date information, analysis, background and everything you need to know.In easy to read chapters, with extensive references and links to get you to know all there is to know about IPv6 right away, covering: IPv6, 6bone, 6LoWPAN, 6over4, Ad-Hoc Configuration Protocol, AICCU, Anycast, China Next Generation Internet, Comparison of IPv6 application support, Comparison of IPv6 support by major transit providers, Comparison of IPv6 support in operating systems, Comparison of IPv6 support in routers, Cryptographically Generated Address, DHCPv6, DirectAccess, DoD IPv6 Product Certification, Hurricane Electric, ICMPv6, IPv4 address exhaustion, IPv6 address, IPv6 brokenness and DNS whitelisting, IPv6 deployment, IPv6 packet, IPv6 subnetting reference, IPv6 transition mechanisms, ISATAP, NAT64, Neighbor Discovery Protocol, Next Generation Internet Program, OCCAID, Radvd, SATSIX, Secure Neighbor Discovery Protocol, Site Multihoming by IPv6 Intermediation, Solicited-node multicast address, Transformational Satellite Communications System, Tunnel broker, List of IPv6 tunnel brokers, Tunnel Setup Protocol, Unique local address, Where-Are-You, World IPv6 Day, Internet Protocol, Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol, 3GPP Long Term Evolution, Access Network Discovery and Selection Function, Geospacial Internet, IP address, Provider-aggregatable address space, Provider-independent address space, Bogon filtering, Datagram service, Getaddrinfo, Group Destination Address, Internet Layer, Internet Stream Protocol, IP camera, IP in IP, IP Network Transformation, IPv4 Residual Deployment (4rd), Link Layer, List of assigned /8 IPv4 address blocks, MIL-STD-1777, Policy charging and rules function, Reserved IP addresses, System Architecture Evolution, Header checksum, IPv4, Vigilant Technology, WikiScanner, X-No-Archive, Anti-replay, Gateway-to-Gateway Protocol, Internet Control Message Protocol, Internet Group Management Protocol, Internet Group Management Protocol with Access Control (IGMP-AC), IPsec, Seamoby, SwIPe (protocol), CLNS, CONS, Datagram Delivery Protocol, Grapple (network layer), Internetwork Packet Exchange, MacIP, Mobile IP, Multicast Listener Discovery, Network Control Protocol, Network Layer, Resource reservation protocol, X.121, X.25, X.75This book explains in-depth the real drivers and workings of IPv6.
