By Peter Loshin

The second one variation of IPv6: conception, Protocol, and perform courses readers via implemetation and deployment of IPv6. the idea part takes a detailed, impartial examine why a lot effort and time has been expended on revising IPv4. within the Protocol part is a finished evaluation of the specifics of IPv6 and similar protocols. ultimately, the perform part presents hands-on motives of the way to roll out IPv6 help and services.This thoroughly rewritten variation bargains up to date and finished insurance of vital subject matters together with router and server configuration, safety, the influence of IPv6 on cellular networks, and comparing the influence of IPv6-enabled networks globally. Pete Loshin's famously lucid motives gain readers at each flip, making Ipv6: conception, Protocol, and perform the way for a wide different viewers to wake up to hurry in this groundbreaking expertise. * the great, obtainable, and updated source wanted via community engineers and aid employees, product builders and executives, programmers, and advertising pros* Divided into sections on conception, the protocol's technical info, and methods for development Ipv6 networks, this e-book covers not just the protocol however the ways that the protocol could be built-in into networks.* Covers severe subject matters intensive, together with router and server configuration, safety, worth review, and the influence of Ipv6 on worldwide networks

Example text

Although networks cannot do without protocols, they can certainly make the ones we’ve got continue to work. When some part of any Internet protocol doesn’t work as it is supposed to, the IETF is far more likely to create a workaround than to replace it. That is why so many of these venerable specifications are updated over the years but not entirely replaced. For various reasons, IPv4 is approaching the end of useful life. It still works and should continue to work for the foreseeable future—as long as the Internet stops growing.

Many implementations of those protocols current in 1984 would likely still work in the Internet of today. Software and hardware vendors depend on rapid change and Moore’s Law to drive a continuous cycle of highly profitable upgrades, but such recklessness is not practical for network protocols. Although networks cannot do without protocols, they can certainly make the ones we’ve got continue to work. When some part of any Internet protocol doesn’t work as it is supposed to, the IETF is far more likely to create a workaround than to replace it.

And the longer the routing list, the longer (on average) it will take the router to figure out where to send the packet. This is not a problem if you have 10, or 100, or 1000 networks to keep track of. But when you get into the higher numbers, as we have now with the Internet, with backbone routers routinely carrying explicit routes for over 110,000 different network addresses,10 routing can become a nightmare. net/mailinglists/rtma/. 3 Part One • Theory IPV4 ROUTING SCALABILITY RFC 3221, “Commentary on Inter-Domain Routing in the Internet,” provides detailed discussion of the problem.
