NCCoE Releases Draft Project Description for IPv6 Transition

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has released a new draft project description, Secure IPv6-Only Implementation in the Enterprise.

The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) has released a new draft project description, Secure IPv6-Only Implementation in the Enterprise. Publication of this project description begins a process to further identify project requirements, scope, and hardware and software components for use in a laboratory demonstration environment.

NIST's NCCoE wants your feedback on this draft to help refine the project. The comment period is now open and will close on January 27, 2022.

The project will address operational, security, and privacy issues associated with the evolution to IPv6-only network infrastructures. It will demonstrate tools and methods for securely implementing IPv6, whether as a “greenfield” implementation or as a transition from an IPv4 infrastructure to an IPv6-only network. This project will result in practice guides to encourage the secure transition to IPv6-only enterprise IT environments.

We Want to Hear from You!

Review the project description and submit comments online on or before January 27, 2022. You can also help shape and contribute to this project by joining the NCCoE’s IPv6 Transition Community of Interest. Send an email to ipv6-transition [at] nist.gov detailing your interest.

We value and welcome your input and look forward to your comments.
