The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center in Charleston, S.C., in the coming year plans to test an IPv6 version of the Non-Classified IP Router Network. Government organizations are conducting "lots of IPv6 impact studies" in view of the rapidly declining availability of 32-bit Internet Protocol Version 4 addresses, said Michael P. Brig, SPAWAR-Charleston's Next Generation Internet program manager. He spoke last week at the IPv6 2000 conference in Washington.

    Dual IPv4-IPv6 stacks will soon be in place on the Defense Information Systems Network Leading Edge Services network under test for the Commander in Chief for the 21st Century Advanced Concept and Technology Demonstration, Brig said. The demonstration, at three or four military bases, will test IPv6 security and the cost-effectiveness of migration from IPv4 addressing.
