1 Government-wide IPv6 Oversight OMB & AIC Dick Burk OMB Chief Architect November 17, 2005
2 Agenda What is IPv6? What are the features of IPv6? What are the benefits of IPv6? OMB Memorandum What IPv6 guidance will be issued? How do I integrate IPv6 into agency EA planning? How will OMB be assessing agency progress with IPv6? What else is being done to support agencies? What are OMB and AIC roles and responsibilities? Guiding principles for IPv6 implementation
3 What is IPv6? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] IPv6 is a new version of the Internet Protocol (IP) “next generation internet” Designed to overcome limitations of IPv4 -limited IP address space -constrained user mobility -cumbersome device configuration Will enable expansion of “net-centric” devices, applications, and services VoIP (Voice over IP) Remote sensing “Smart” devices
4 Why is the Federal government mandating IPv6? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] International competition – The U.S. must address the challenge from international competition (e.g. Asia, Europe) in IPv6 implementation. Lead by example – Federal government agencies will serve as a model for U.S. enterprise IPv6 transformation. Serve as market catalyst – Federal government adoption will spur innovation and development of IPv6 products in the marketplace. But most importantly… Business drivers - IPv6 will enable a new communication paradigm for the Federal government.
5 What are the features of IPv6? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] Key IPv6 Features Improved Network Performance Integrated Security (IPSec) Larger Address Space Standardized Quality of Service (QoS) Device auto- configuration 128 bit address device “plug and play” variable header size mandatory IPSec better audio/video transmission
6 What are the business benefits of IPv6? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] New Business Capabilities Enhanced Mobility Ease of Network Administration Unlimited opportunity to bring new communication capabilities to the enterprise, such as internet-enabled: - medical, military, and first-responder devices - RFID tags - revenue collection and/or case management tools - environmental remote sensing - net-centric apps and services (e.g. VoIP) The possibilities are endless…
7 What does OMB Memorandum instruct agencies to do? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] 1.Identify an IPv6 agency lead 2.Develop a network backbone transition plan for IPv6 3.Complete two (2) inventories of IP-aware devices and technologies First is due in February 2006 Second is due in June Complete an IPv6 transition impact analysis 5.Complete an IPv6 progress report 6.Submit to OMB all of these items (with the exception of the second inventory) with their February 28, 2006 Enterprise Architecture assessment OMB Memorandum directs agencies to successfully transition their network backbone to IPv6 by June 2008, and….
8 What IPv6 guidance will be published? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] Chapter I – Integrating IPv6 into EA Planning Activities (target date – 11/15/05) Focus on EA planning and February 2006 EA submission IPv6 Frequently Asked Questions (target date – 11/30/05) Focus on compliance with Chapter II – Developing an IPv6 Transition Plan (target date – 1/15/06) Focus is on general transition planning, IA/security, applications, testing, and training; based on DoD best practices Chapter III – Governance (target date – 2/15/06; exact date TBD) Chapter IV – Acquisition/Procurement (target date – 2/28/06; exact date TBD) To assist agencies with development of their IPv6 transition plans, the AIC will be publishing guidance in several chapters, as well as an IPv6 “Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)” document. More in-depth, technical guidance will need to come out of an AIC-sponsored IPv6 working group…
9 How do I integrate IPv6 into EA planning? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] Chapter I – Integrating IPv6 into EA Planning Activities Identify strategic drivers and business uses for IPv6 at agency-level Incorporate IPv6 (including new business capabilities) into IRM Strategic Plan Update the Agency Enterprise Architecture to reflect new capabilities and technologies Baseline architecture Target architecture EA transition strategy Other EA documentation Chapter I of IPv6 guidance addresses these topics in more depth…
10 EA Transition and Sequencing Plans Agencies should integrate IPv6 with other infrastructure-related efforts. The EA Transition Strategy should reflect these interrelationships and milestones…
11 - Level 1 PracticesActivities: Agency has assigned an official to lead and coordinate agency planning for IPv6 transition. Artifacts: Memorandum signed by the agency CIO documenting appointment and duties/responsibilities thereof Level 2 PracticesActivities: agency has completed an inventory of existing routers, switches, hardware firewalls, and other IP-compliant devices and technologies. Artifacts: Agency IP device inventory using guidance in attachment A, OMB M Level 3 PracticesActivities: agency has performed an impact analysis to determine fiscal and operational impacts and risks of migrating to IPv6. Artifacts: Agency IPv6 impact analysis document using guidance in attachment B, OMB M Level 4 PracticesActivities: agency has developed an IPv6 transition plan and integrated this plan with the agency EA transition strategy. Artifacts: Agency EA transition strategy with integrated IPv6 transition plan addressing areas listed in attachment C, OMB M Level 5 PracticesActivities: agency has migrated its network backbone to IPv6, and provided a capability for all its networks to interface with this backbone. Artifacts: Agency SDLC (systems development lifecycle) artifacts documenting the updated network infrastructure. EA Assessment Framework 2.0 OMB will use EA Assessment Framework 2.0* to assess agency compliance with OMB Memorandum 05-22, and overall progress with IPv6 * Excerpted from EA Assessment Framework 2.0, still in draft form…
12 How will OMB assess agency IPv6 progress? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] OMB Enterprise Architecture Assessment Framework 2.0 IPv6 Progress Report Agency EA Transition Strategy Agency IRM Strategic Plan OMB will look at: OMB will use: Specifically, OMB will be looking for establishment of IPv6 transition milestones, and progress against those milestones… IPv6 Device Inventories
13 What else is being done to support agencies? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] Communications IPv6 portal (Core.gov?) Acquisition policy FAR and DFAR cases opened Address-space acquisition Department of Commerce Standards/guidelines NIST standards (not funded yet) DISA IPv6-capable requirements matrix
14 What still needs to be done? [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] Stand up an IPv6 Working Group (IPv6 agency leads and SMEs) to: Lead development of more in-depth transition guidance Coordinate inter-agency and stakeholder issues Coordinate agency interoperability testing, where needed Post and maintain IPv6 knowledge capital on IPv6 portal Agency IPv6-leads need to begin working with one another ….
15 OMB & AIC Roles and Responsibilities [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] OMB Compose Chapters II, III, and IV of IPv6 guidance with support from IPv6 SMEs, as needed. Compose IPv6 FAQ. Review IPv6 inventory device submissions; aggregate and redact for publication to industry. Facilitate creation of FAR and DFAR cases for IPv6 acquisition. Facilitate NIST publication of IPv6 standards. Publish DISA IPv6-capable matrix as RFC. Facilitate government-wide IP-address acquisition by Dept of Commerce. Assess agency progress with IPv6 transition and compliance with Memorandum AIC Review and publish Chapters II, III, and IV of guidance to agencies. Review and publish IPv6 FAQ to agencies. Stand up and oversee IPv6 working group (agency IPv6 leads?). Oversee development and publication of any additional IPv6 technical guidance or work products (coming from working group). IPv6 working group (and potentially IAC) will be tasked with additional responsibilities as deemed appropriate…
16 Guiding Principles for IPv6 Implementation [ Please read the notes section for more detail ] IPv6 transition IS: A strategic enterprise transformation Focused on new business capabilities Future-oriented – an opportunity for agencies to INNOVATE Enterprise-architecture driven An initiative that should be integrated with other infrastructure efforts (e.g. COOP, HSPD-12) IPv6 transition IS NOT: Just a network “upgrade” Just the CIO’s problem
