1 Awinder Kaur National Advanced IPv6 Centre of Excellence University Science Malaysia IPv6 Migration in Malaysias Government Agencies – Issues and Challenges APAN – Queenstown, New Zealand

2 Presentation Outline Introduction IPv6 Initiatives in Malaysia Problem Statement Research Objective Literature Studies Methodology Sample Findings Recommendations Conclusions

3 Introduction Why we need IPv6 in Malaysia? Shortage of IP Addresses due to 3 Main Factors: 1.Growing Population & Small No of Allocated Addresses 2.Rising Internet Penetration Rate 3.Increasing Broadband Subscribers Deploy IPv6 Features & Benefits

4 Factor 1: Global IP Address Allocation Source: 81% Addresses Allocated to 10 Countries Malaysia (19% Category) Malaysia - 0.1577% Address Allocated for Malaysias Population of 25282577

5 Factor 2: Internet Penetration Rate Predicted Internet Penetration in Malaysia for 2012 is 95.6% Source:

6 Factor 3: Broadband Subscribers Malaysias number of broadband subscriptions by technology % of Increase in Q1 2008 compared to Q1 2007 (1 Year) = 33% Source: No. of Broadband Subscribers (000)

7 IPv6 Initiatives in Malaysia ISPs to provide IPv6 connectivity by 2006 E-Government Agencies to deploy IPv6 by 2008 Entire Malaysia to be IPv6 enabled by 2010 Ministry of Energy, Water and Communications (MEWC) - main ministry involved in IPv6 & responsible for establishing Malaysia 2 Key IPv6 Players: National IPv6 Council (2005) National Advanced IPv6 Centre (March 2005) Malaysias IPv6 Timeline:

8 IPv6 - 1 of 8 key infrastructure under MYICMS886 blueprint IPv6 - 1 of 3 main technologies focused by MEWC under 9MP MYREN has IPv6 dual-stack deployed linking 12 universities and research centres IPv6 Pilot Project in 2 Government Agencies Malaysia IPv6 Roadmap Created IPv6 Initiatives in Malaysia IPv6 Adoption Efforts in Malaysia

9 Problem Statement Ensuring Government Agencies in Malaysia have a smooth & successful IPv6 migration

10 To identify Government Agencies issues & challenges in IPv6 Migration To recommend appropriate steps to overcome the issues & challenges Research Objectives

11 Literature Studies: Global IPv6 Adoption Challenges IPv6 Migration Challenges Cost UncertaintyLack of IPv6 AwarenessSecurity ConcernsUnsure of Migration StepsStill Have Adequate IPv4 Addresses Large Investments in Current IPv4 Infrastructure

12 Questionnaire Sample: Government Agencies Staff involved in IPv6 Migration Gather information on: Awareness & Acceptance Training & HRD Infrastructural / Technical Overview Issues & Problems (My Focus) The findings will: Provide recommendations to overcome issues & challenges Assist Government Agencies in IPv6 Migration Methodology

13 Sample: Malaysia Government Agencies Total: 85 Gov Agencies Users: >31,000 Network Switches: 2,600 Target: 99.5% IPv6 Service Availability IPv6 Pilot Project in Agencies: MEWC - Done MAMPU – Phase 2 Left: 83 Gov Agencies Prime Ministers Residence Palace of Justice

14 Findings: IPv6 Deployment Challenges Challenges of IPv6 deployment in Agencies (in decreasing importance) are: 1 Lack of staff with IPv6 knowledge & experience 2 Inadequate funding or budget 3 Configurations Considerations 4 Porting Applications Considerations 5 Lack of Time 6 Security Considerations 7 Lack of Vendor Support

15 Findings: IPv6 Deployment Challenges


17 Government Agencies Issues & Problems 1. Lack of Staff with IPv6 Knowledge & Experience2. Inadequate funding / budget3. Configuration Considerations4. Porting Application Considerations5. Lack of Time6. Security Considerations7. Lack of Vendor Support8. Cost Concern 9. Assistance Required Findings: Summary

18 IPv6 Training (Network Engineering, Application Programming & Security) is a must IPv6 Training will address the following issues & problems: Lack of staffs with IPv6 knowledge & experience Configuration Considerations Porting Application Considerations Security Considerations Recommendation 1: IPv6 Training

19 Implementation of Policy: Timeline Hardware Purchasing (Must Include IPv6 Requirements) Certain Applications (Must Move to IPv6) Policy implementation will address the following issue: Inadequate Funding / Budget Recommendation 2: Policy

20 Migration Guideline – with deliverables & milestones IPv6 Migration Guideline will address the following issues & problems: Lack of Time Cost Concerns Security Considerations Assistance Required Recommendation 3: Guidelines

21 Recommendation 4: To Address Cost Concerns Cost Recommendation 1. Early Assessment & Proper Planning - Reduces Cost 2. IPv6 Migration Costs Identified 3. Appropriate Transition Mechanisms Chosen 4. Porting Applications to IPv6 Cost – Less with Proper Planning

22 Recommendation 5: To Address Security Concerns Security Recommendation Conduct Study to Identify Threats & Vulnerabilities of IPv6 Transition Phased IPv6 adoption approach developed: Ensure end-to-end interoperability, performance & security Train Agencies IT Staffs - IPv6 Security

23 Recommendations – Summary IPv6 Training Migration Guidelines Address Cost Concerns Address Security Considerations Adopt a Phased IPv6 Adoption Approach Research Institutes – Focus on IPv6 Migration Planning (Impact, Cost, Security & Others) Policy Implementation to Accelerate Migration Migration to IPv6

24 Conclusion Identification of Issues & Problems of Government Agencies IPv6 Migration Propose Solution Issues & Problems Addressing Agencies successfully migrate to IPv6 without disrupting its operations Therefore, Government Agencies will ensure IPv6 Migration accelerated, timeline met & example to other organizations.
