Guidelines for the Secure Deployment of IPv6
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.
