1 6TAP for an IPv6 Internet Becca L. Nitzan ESnet/Lawrence Berkeley National Lab STAR TAP Meeting June 22, 1999, San Jose, CA

2 The 6bone started about 3 years ago as a world- wide testbed for IPv6 running tunneled through the existing IPv4 Internet. IPv4/IPv6 dual stack router IPv4 Internet IPv4/IPv6 dual stack router IPv6 tunneled through the IPv4 Internet IPv6 host End-to-end IPv6

3 ESnet established the 6REN is a follow-on to the 6bone, in that it is strictly native IPv6, production initiatve. IPv6 router IPv6 router IPv6 host End-to-end IPv6 router-to-router PVCs ATM is a great multiplexer Initial participants were R&E networks

4 Current 6REN Participants CAIRN US) Canarie (CA) CERNET (CN) Chungwa (TW) ESnet (US) Internet2 (US) IPFnet (DE) MCI/vBNS (US) NTT (JP) Renater/G6 (FR) Sprint (US) SURFnet (NL) WIDE (JP) MIRnet (RU) & AARNET (AU) soon

5 Why a 6TAP In the early days of IPv6 production service it will be difficult to find native IPv6 peering points establishing, measuring and documenting good peering, registry and route serving procedures is best done from the start the 6TAP will enable both the above as the STAR TAP is a very widely used common peering point for all RENs, and it will be easier to establish peerings

6 6TAP architecture STAR TAP ATM switch 6TAP router 6TAP registry & route server Out of band access via ethernet and dialup Co-located at StarTAP Local OC3 link Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide StarTAP Project ATM switch & port Ports for other StarTAP Project use R&E network already using v4 over ATM to reach StarTAP simply sets up a v6 ATM PVC path to the 6TAP router

7 STAR TAP ATM switch 6TAP router 6TAP registry & route server Local OC3 link Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide StarTAP Project ATM switch & port Ports for other StarTAP Project use Equipment and operational support are being provided by: Router: ESnet Route Server: CANARIE in collaboration with MERIT MRT project w/equipment possibly by sun Registry: QWEST (continuation of work started at ISI) ATM switches/ports: NSF (ala Star TAP)

8 The 6TAP router will provide IPv6 routing information and transit traffic forwarding ATM switch for tap Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide IPv6 peers can immediately get access to other IPv6 peers by establishing only one direct peering with the 6TAP router. Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer 6TAP router

9 ESnet IPv6 backbone 6bone/6ren IPv6 peers (6bone is tunneled/6ren is native IPv6)... 6TAP IPv6 router IPv6 router 6TAP peers (native IPv6 [6ren])... ESnet will provide IPv6 routing and transit between 6TAP peers and non 6TAP 6bone/6ren peers (as well as to ESnet sites). ESnet IPv6 sites

10 ESnet will provide limited access to the 6TAP router. Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer WEB access: -Looking glass for routing info -BGP peering status (up/down) - MRTG Stats additional polling variable requests will be considered WEB access: -Looking glass for routing info -BGP peering status (up/down) - MRTG Stats additional polling variable requests will be considered 6TAP router ATM switch for tap

11 Weve decided to deploy 12.0 IPv6 cisco code, which is more interesting than staying with the limited 11.3 based code. Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer 6TAP router Cisco based code rev The 12.0 release supports the enhanced ATM PA-A3 interface; the rev 11.3 does not. Has both ATM enhanced PA-A3, and ATM PA-A1 interfaces backup ethernet access dialup ATM switch for tap

12 The 6TAP router will support native IPv6 peerings only, and no tunneled IPv6 (6bone) connections. Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer 6TAP router Cisco based code rev native IPv6 BGP peering sessions ATM switch for tap

13 A full mesh of ATM pvcs will be pre-configured to other Star participants Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer 6TAP router Cisco based code rev ATM PVCs pre-configured ATM switch for tap

14 Well provide a web page for establishing BGP peering sessions. Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer WEB page peering form for: - Route announcments - point-to-point address pref - AS number - Contact info - etc... WEB page peering form for: - Route announcments - point-to-point address pref - AS number - Contact info - etc... 6TAP router AS 3425 ATM switch for tap

15 Inbound route announcements will be filtered by prefix; they must be a registered 6bone pTLA or a registry assigned sub-TLA Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer 6TAP router AS 3425 ATM switch for tap Route Announcemnts Inbound: registered, filtered. Outbound: entire IPv6 BGP table filtered on prefix length and registry information

16 Outbound route announcements will be the entire IPv6 BGP routing table filtered on registered prefix and length; special cases are handled upon requst. Wide area ATM links from StarTAP participants worldwide Native IPv6 peers Native IPv6 peer 6TAP router AS 3425 ATM switch for tap Route Announcemnts Inbound: registered, filtered. Outbound: entire IPv6 BGP table filtered on prefix length and registry information

17 ESnet backbone ESnet operations will provde 24x7 monitoring of the 6TAP router. Spectrum network management 6TAP router AS 3425 ATM switch for tap real-time polling WEB access: -BGP up/down status -Router status
