IPv6 Internet Engineering Task Force

IPv6 is the protocol that is designed to replace the current network protocol in use on the Internet. IPv6 also promises to extend the Internet into more areas, through support for mobile devices. Because of this potential new reach of the Internet and vulnerabilities in the existing protocol, the IPv6 protocol includes privacy and security enhancing features such as encryption. A recent paper entitled “IPv6: An Internet Evolution” is available at http://www.ipv6forum.com/navbar/papers/IPv6-an-Internet-Evolution.pdf. In addition, the IPv6 Forum website: http://www.ipv6forum.com/ includes all updates and developments in this area.
