3 Key Problems Address Shortage Extrapolating the number of DNS registered addresses shows total exhaustion in But the practical maximum is about 240 M addresses, in
4 Key Problems Address Shortage Peer to Peer applications requireAddressability of each end pointUnconstrained inbound and outbound trafficDirect communication between end points using multiple concurrent protocolsNATs are a band-aid to address shortageBlock inbound traffic on listening portsConstrain traffic to “understood” protocolsCreate huge barrier to deployment of P2P applications
5 Key Problems Lack of Mobility Existing applications and networking protocols do not work with changing IP addressesApplications do not “reconnect” when a new IP address appearsTCP drops session when IP address changesIPSEC hashes across IP addresses, changing address breaks the Security AssociationMobile IPv4 solution is not deployableForeign agent reliance not realisticNATs and Mobile IPv4? Just say NO
6 Key Problems Network Security Always On == Always attacked!Consumers deploying NATs and Personal FirewallsEnterprises deploying Network FirewallsNATs and Network Firewalls break end-to-end semanticsBarrier to deploying Peer to Peer applicationsBarrier to deploying new protocolsBlock end-to-end, authorized, tamper-proof, private communicationNo mechanisms for privacy at the network layerIP addresses expose information about the userNo transparent way to restrict communication within network boundaries
7 The Promise of IPv6 Enough addresses True mobility 64+64 format: 1.8E+19 networks, unitsassuming IPv4 efficiency: 1E+16 networks, 1 million networks per human20 networks per m2 of Earth (2 per sqft )Removes need to stretch addresses with NATsTrue mobilityNo reliance on Foreign AgentsBetter network layer securityIPSec delivers end-to-end securityLink/Site Local addresses allow partitioningAnonymous addresses provide privacy
8 The Promise of IPv6 Example: Multiparty Conference, using IPv6 Home LANInternetHome LANHomeGatewayHomeGatewayP3With a NAT:Brittle “workaround”.With IPv6:Just use IPv6 addresses
9 IPv6 in the enterprise ? Why? How? When? It is not a fad – there really are new scenariosHow?It does not require extraordinary investments if you use the right tools!Keeping it secure!When?As soon as the tools are ready,That is, now!
10 IPv6 enterprise scenarios Extranet applicationsReplace “double NAT” scenarios by global addressingEnables “station to station” encryption, meeting security requirements for demanding cooperationsMobile usersUse Mobile IPv6 for a simpler “VPN” scenarioIntranet managementUnique addresses for all devices simplifies management, e.g. real-time inventories.
11 IPv6 deployment tool-box IPv6 stateless address auto-configurationRouter announces a prefix, client configures an address6to4: Automatic tunneling of IPv6 over IPv4Derives IPv6 /48 network prefix from IPv4 global addressAutomatic tunneling of IPv6 over UDP/IPv4Works through NAT, may be blocked by firewallsISATAP: Automatic tunneling of IPv6 over IPv4For use behind a firewall.
