Address Unknown: A Guide to IPv6 offers a complete overview and introduction to the requirements and features of IP addressing within TCP/IP Version 6. IPv6 is the latest version of the core Internet communications protocol TCP/IP. The current version, IPv4, will eventually give ground to IPv6. However, network analysts project that the two versions of TCP/IP will live together for the next few years. TCP/IP addressing in IPv4 is based on a 32-bit addressing scheme. IPv6 will enable 128-bit addressing thus increasing the number of potential addresses on the Internet and avoiding the dire predictions that the Internet will run out of addressing space in the near future. This book provides a complete introduction to the TCP/IP addressing system and prepares system administrators to integrate IPv6 features into their Internet architecture. This book will be of interest to all system administrators managing an IP network, consultants working on IPv6 systems, as well as network design engineers seeking to fully understand IPv6 addressing issues.
