The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) will host a workshop on Security for IPv6 Enabled Enterprises on Thursday, June 13th at 8:30 a.m. in Rockville, MD.
NIST’s NCCoE is developing a project plan to examine and demonstrate the state of security technologies and guidance specifications for IPv6 enabled enterprises. A primary focus of the workshop and subsequent NCCoE demonstration project is to examine the extent to which current commercially available security technologies can support wide scale deployment and use of IPv6 in a range of enterprise use case scenarios. Initially the project will focus on dual-stack deployments, and then in subsequent follow-on efforts focus on IPv6-only deployments. Another focus of the proposed proof-of-concept project will exercise and evaluate existing IPv6 security guidance from NIST and the Internet Engineering Task Force. It is anticipated that outcomes of the project will inform updates to future NIST guidelines and recommendations.
NIST explicitly solicits input from workshop participants on all aspects of the planned NCCoE demonstration project including the proposed scope, use cases and technologies to be considered, and sources of specifications and guidance. Once the project description in finalized NIST will solicit organizations to directly collaborate in the technical project and the development of its outputs.
