Guidelines for the Secure Deployment of IPv6

2 MB | 3 files | null PDF,null DOC

These guidelines will help your organization prepare for the transition from the IPv4 addressing scheme to the more expansive IPv6 model. Many organizations may end up running both IPv4 and IPv6 for a time.

Due to the exhaustion of IPv4 address space, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate that U.S. federal agencies begin to use the IPv6 protocol, NIST undertook the development of a guide to help educate federal agencies about the possible security risks during their initial IPv6 deployment.

This document provides guidelines for organizations to aid in securely deploying IPv6. Since the majority of organizations will most likely run both IPv6 and IPv4 on their networks for the foreseeable future, this document pertains to the deployment of IPv6 rather than the transition to IPv6.
