IPv4 Addresses

The first allocation of IPv6 address space by a Regional Internet Registry (RIR) to a provider was made in April of 1999.

One of the messages that was clear at  the North American IPv6 Summit is that Dual-Stack is only halfway there. We don’t really want to maintain two networks (IPv4 and IPv6) forever. We want to get to IPv6-Only networks

Dr. Vinton G. CERF
Vint stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:
“ As you know the Internet Society started an Internet Hall of Fame to recognise pioneers, connectors and contributors to the Internet technology and growth, but now I think it’s time to recognise those who led the path to IP version 6 which uses a much larger address space to deal with the challenges of Internet of Things and an increasing user population

IPv4 address space has been used for decades to grow the Internet. When engineers deployed IPv4 in 1981, four billion IP addresses seemed like plenty. As the world caught on to the commercial possibilities of the Internet, though, engineers realized that the number of IP addresses simply wasn’t enough for all the laptops, mobile devices, web servers, routers, and other devices coming online.

Anticipating the problem several years ago, the industry deployed stopgap technologies such as Network Address Translation (NAT) in 1994 to extend the life of IPv4. Without NAT, we could easily have run out of IPv4 addresses some years ago. However, solutions such as NAT have only delayed the inevitable.

The demand for IPv6-related services may follow a curve similar to Y2K, with lots of panic and anxiety exuding from those who are among the last to migrate to an all IPv6 world. GLadev is here to help you with your migration

Cloud computing describes the use of networks of remote servers – usually accessed over the Internet – to store, manage, and process data. As a segment of IT services, cloud computing generates billions of dollars in revenue annually and is showing very few signs of slowing down. For customers, cloud computing offers access to numerous technologies while lowering the barriers to entry, such as technical expertise or costs. Typically, the cloud service market is divided into three primary service models, encompassing infrastructure, platforms, and software. Depending on business needs and security concerns, customers can also choose between private, public, or hybrid cloud deployment.

IPv6 is good for IoT and IoT is good for IPv6. There are several arguments and features that demonstrate that IPv6 is actually a key communication enabler for the future Internet of Things:

Adoption is just a matter of time

The Internet Protocol is a must and a requirement for any Internet connectivity. It is the addressing scheme for any data transfer on the web. The limited address capacity of its predecessor, IPv4, has made the transition to IPv6 unavoidable. Google’s figures are revealing an IPv6 adoption rate following an exponential curve, doubling every 6 months.


IPv6 offers a highly scalable address scheme. The present scheme of Internet Governance provides at most 2 x 1019 unique, globally routable, addresses. This is many orders of magnitude more that the 2 x 109 that is possible with IPv4 and the 1013 that is the largest estimate of IoT devices that will be used this century.

Solving the NAT barrier

Due to the limits of the IPv4 address space, the current Internet had to adopt a stopgap solution to face its unplanned expansion: the Network Address Translation (NAT).

Multi-Stakeholder Support

IPv6 provides for end devices to have multiple addresses and an even more distributed routing mechanism than the IPv4 Internet.

Although IPv6 is a security-enabled protocol, migration from IPv4 can create new risks and weaken an organization’s security strategy.

The replacement for the venerable IPv4 protocol is now in use on the Internet and might even exist on your network without your knowledge. Here’s a look at some of the security implications of IPv6.

So, what does the emergence of IPv6 mean to security practitioners? Let’s look at some specific IPv6 security issues that impact our work:

  • Security practitioners need education/training on IPv6. IPv6 will come to the networks under your control – it’s only a matter of time.
  • Security tools need to be upgraded. IPv6 is not backwards compatible. The hardware and software used to route traffic across networks and perform security analyses won’t work with IPv6 traffic unless they are upgraded to versions that support the protocol.
  • Existing equipment may require additional configuration. The devices that do support IPv6 typically treat it as an entirely separate protocol (as they should). Therefore, the access control lists, rule bases and other configuration parameters may need to be reevaluated and translated to support an IPv6 environment.
  • Tunneling protocols create new risks. The networking and security communities have invested time and energy in ensuring that IPv6 is a security-enabled protocol. However, one of the greatest risks inherent in the migration is the use of tunneling protocols to support the transition to IPv6.
  • IPv6 autoconfiguration creates addressing complexity. Autoconfiguration, another interesting IPv6 feature, allows systems to automatically gain a network address without administrator intervention.
