Gregory C. Tassey, Douglas C. Montgomery, Alfred Lee, Tim Sloan
The Presidents National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace (National Strategy) directed the Secretary of Commerce to form a task force to examine the most recent iteration of the Internet Protocol, IP version 6 (IPv6). The President charged the task force with considering a variety of IPv6-related issues, including the appropriate role of government, international interoperability, security in transition, and costs and benefits. This report by the Department of Commerces IPv6 Task Force examines the technical and economic issues related to IPv6 adoption in the United States, including the appropriate role of government, international interoperability, security in transition, and costs and benefits of IPv6 deployment. In developing this report, the Task Force, with the assistance of a consultant, RTI International (RTI), has gathered information from a wide range of stakeholders through a request for comment published in January 2004, a public meeting held on IPv6 issues in July 2004, and numerous contacts with public and private-sector stakeholders.
