Re: [fw-wiz] IPv6



Hi Dave,

I'm not sure. I'll have to do some research. I just know on several RFPs I've worked on recently they specified IPv6. When we asked why, they sort of incredulously answered because its the next generation and more secure and I think they mentioned something about a GSA directive. I know they keep saying that it is coming and we have to be ready at the DoD facility where I work. I'll have to try and dig some more.

Regards,

Brad Van Orden

Brad, hello,

Can you point me to the requirements document that DoD is referencing in
their RFPs? Time frame?

Unfortunately the powers that be in the DoD have heard the words that
IPv6 is more secure and have declared that all networks in the DoD will
switch to it. It's slow going, but I think eventually we won't be able
to resist. :(

Dave, you've got to *seriously* ask yourself "what good is this
standard?" if you've got to think of ways to *FORCE* people to
adopt it. I mean, really. Doesn't that say everything that
needs to be said?

mjr.
