Broccoli Technologies: They’re Good For All of Us

This article was written for The New IP, and appeared there under the title “IPv4 vs. IPv6 in the New IP” on 6 March, 2015. As you may have noticed, I tend to (re)post everything I write here on my personal blog. This time I’ve decided to publish this article here with it’s original title, […]

IPv6 Security Myth #7: 96 More Bits, No Magic

This week’s myth is interesting because if we weren’t talking security it wouldn’t be a myth. Say what? The phrase “96 more bits, no magic” is basically a way of saying that IPv6 is just like IPv4, with longer addresses. From a pure routing and switching perspective, this is quite accurate. OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP […]

IPv6 Security Myth #2: IPv6 Has Security Designed In

Today we continue with part 2 of the 10 part series on IPv6 Security Myths by debunking one of the myths I overhear people propagating out loud far too much: That you don’t need to worry about security because IPv6 has it built into the protocol. In this post, we’ll explore several of the reasons […]

Rough Guide To IETF 90: IPv6 Is Everywhere, eh?

With IPv6 passing 4% of Google’s traffic and new networks all over the world steadily deploying IPv6 you may think that IPv6 protocol development work at the IETF is done with. Quite the opposite is true in fact. As IPv6 becomes the de facto Internet Protocol, it has also become a topic that must be […]

Introducing IPv6 | Understanding IPv6 Addresses

The primary difference between IPv4 and IPv6 addresses is length. IPv4 addresses are 32 bits long and IPv6 addresses are 128 bits long. This means that an IPv4 address is made up of 32 1s and 0s while an IPv6 address is made up of 128 of them – 128 binary digits. This massive length forces IPv6 addresses to be written using a different notation than IPv4 addresses and thus makes them very easy to distinguish from IPv4 addresses.

IPv6, A Numbers Game

I was planning on writing this great breakthrough piece on IPv6 subnet sizes, like how many /48s are in a /32 or how many /56s are in a /24, etc… But then I stumbled across a great PDF from ARIN and realized that all the work was already done. So I ended up not posting […]
