IPv6 is the future. Beyond solving the immediate problem of IPv4 address exhaustion, it will facilitate the continued growth of the Internet to tens of billions of connected devices. But in the meantime, enterprises are still left dealing with the relative complexity of IPv6 adoption, so we’re continuing our educational efforts on IPv6 (in anticipation of two companion webinars last year, we blogged on IPv6 Risks and Threats).
On March 31, Ed Horley, practice manager for Cloud Solutions at Groupware Technology, and I will be hosting a 30-minute webinar entitled Dual-Stack IPv6 on the Corporate LAN — Managing Windows, Security, and Legacy IPv4. Both Ed and I have been working on and promoting IPv6 adoption for a long time: he’s the Pluralsight author of IPv6: Introduction to the Protocol and I wrote O’Reilly’s IPv6 Address Planning.
We’ll bring you up-to-speed on how to manage the adoption of IPv6 effectively and deploy dual-stack on your internal enterprise networks with confidence, with discussions of:
- How and when Windows (and other operating systems) obtain IPv6/DHCPv6 addresses to use for connections
- The tools available today to help secure the IPv6 that’s already running by default on your network
- How to make sure your network infrastructure is ready to support IPv6
