In networking, IP as we call it is generally Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the replacement for IP running in today’s networks. 23 years after the initial release of IPv6 we observe that many networks are not formally implementing IPv6, however, most modern desktop/server OS’s have had IPv6 enabled for 8+ years. That means many IT departments and technologists don’t understand that IPv6 is in fact all over their networks nor what the potential implications are.
This session will cover a few IPv6 basics and then dive into a real-world demonstration accessing a live network and the recon/exploit of an “IPv4 only” network using IPv6.
Plan to attend at 7pm CT on February 24th.

TXv6TF’s own Jeff Carrell will be speaking at the upcoming DFW-CUG (Cisco Users Group) meeting in February, 2021. He will presenting on Wireshark and as part of that will speak to IPv6 capabilities. More information on the meeting is on the DFW-CUG website.
This article points out the impact on businesses of the IPv6-only directive in the Federal Government. I encourage every enterprise IT person to take a moment to read it.
Check out this podcast from some of my favorite IPv6 guys. They are discussing some impacts on IPv6 usage in during the Covid-19 Pandamic.
Stay well and safe!

TXv6TF is presenting a tutorial session about IPv6 at the IEEE GreenTech of Smart City Conference in April of 2018. The session will be delivered by Stan Barber, Cung Nguyen, Jeff Handal and Rob Barton. This four hour tutorial will include an overview of IPv6’s use for industrial IoT projects with deep dives into a few of them. You can still register for the conference in Austin Texas. You can get discount on the registration. Details can be found here.
Please see this posting on the Internet Society Website. Clearly, there is still much to do to make IPv6 more available!
