If you are looking to learn more about IPv6 or looking for lists of products and training resources related to IPv6, the folks over at the United States Department of Defense (DOD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program maintain a comprehensive site devoted to sharing information about IPv6 based on the work of the Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN).
Long names and acronyms aside, some of the many excellent resources to be found within the site include:
- A case study of DREN’s IPv6 pilot program: presentation and whitepaper.
- An overview of lessons learned with IPv6
- An IPv6 tutorial from 2012
- A long list of many IPv6-related training resources, books and ebooks (the “IPv6 Training and Learning Information” link near the top brings you to a periodically-updated PDF listing all the resources)
- Information about applications that support IPv6 (again with a periodically-updated PDF)
- A list of networking products supporting IPv6
- Suggestions on what to do before you begin your IPv6 deployment
- IPv6 security information
- A FAQ
The site includes a great amount of information of value not only to US government agencies and employees, but also to anyone working with IPv6. Kudos to the team at DREN for maintaining the site and we’re pleased to add it to the list of resources we’re promoting here on Deploy360.
