IPv6 in the News

General Reference Material (User)

  • IPv6 for All – ISOC sponsered book providing a good user directed overview of IPv6 (154 pages) – ipv6tf.org
  • An IPv6 Deployment Guide – Written for the European 6Net project – an excellent book that covers not only the basics of IPv6 protocols but also issues related to deployment.  The only drawback is that it was published in September 2005 so it is assumed that some of the information will be out of date – but still a very good reference (442 pages) – 6diss.org
  • The IPv6 Portal – Navigation a bit difficult to get through at times but some good pointers to other IPv6 resources for the patient – ipv6tf.org
  • 6diss.org IPv6 Tutorials – Collection of presentations / tutorials on various aspects of IPv6 – 6diss.org
  • 6Deploy Tutorials – Another collection of presentations / tutorials on various aspects of IPv6 – 6deploy.org
  • IPv6: What, Why, How presentation slides – nice introductory presentation – openwall.com
  • IPv6 Transition and Integration with IPv4 – Slide presentation by Tim Chown – 6diss.org
  • IPv6 Essentials, 2nd Edition – Commercial Book published by O’Reilly (2006 – 448 pages) – shop.oreilly.com
