A Profile for IPv6 in the U.S. Government - Version 1.0
Douglas C. Montgomery, J. S. Nightingale, Sheila E. Frankel, Mark E. Carson
This publication seeks to assist Federal agencies in formulating plans for the acquisition of IPv6 technologies. To achieve this, we define a standards profile for IPv6 in the USG that is intended to be applicable to all future uses of IPv6 in non- classified, non-national security federal IT systems. The standards profile is meant to: (a) define a simple taxonomy of common network devices; (b)define their minimal mandatory IPv6 capabilities and identify significant configuration options so as to assist agencies in the development of more specific acquisition and deployment plans; and, (c) provide the technical basis upon which future USG polices can be defined.
