In this article in our Royal Holloway security series, we examine the mechanisms that have been invented to allow Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), which replaces IPv4, users to prove their rightful ownership of an address, preventing others from using it falsely, as well as showing some of the ways in which these measures are incomplete.
IP addresses are being nearly depleted due to the immense popularity of the internet and the need to have a unique IP address to identify each device using it. Running out of internet addresses would have disastrous effects.
Creating an IPv6 addressing plan is one of the most important pre-adoption tasks you have. This white paper details the technical and business requirements of deploying IPv6 and also provides a sample plan. View now to learn more!
This week's digital magazine examines the challenges of migrating to IPv6 now the internet has run out of IPv4 addresses - a process every IT manager now faces. We also look into the IT issues facing smart meters and ask what will the beta launch of Gov.uk hold in store for public services?
Accelerating trends are driving the evolution of networking in the Oracle Solaris operating system (OS). Millions of new users connect to the internet every week through increasingly sophisticated wireless devices, PCs, and even automobiles. Networking features in Oracle Solaris 10 address performance, scalability, security, and protocol support.
Complex subnetting, VLSM, and IP address summarization can be implemented simply and efficiently with proper planning. Click through to explore why great care must be taken to complete the IP address planning process accurately to accommodate current needs and growth.
In order to ensure business continuity and future growth, all organizations need to carefully plan for coexistence between IPv4 and IPv6. A combination of both native IPv4 and IPv6, better known as dual stack, is the recommended coexistence strategy for enterprise networks. Continue reading to learn more.
This E-Guide from SearchEnterpriseWAN.com explores the importance of IPv6 and why it should be on every enterprise's short-term to-do list. View now to uncover how this influential protocol will shape your enterprise now and in the future.
As the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 occurs, the challenge of accommodating both protocols becomes a big challenge. Learn about four transition technologies, along with their advantages and disadvantages.
