Why you need to pay attention
to IPv6… now
In less than a year ARIN runs
out of IPv4 addresses
So what?
This is what everyone talks
about – there are no more IPv4
addresses!
Honestly, this isn’t why you
need to pay attention to IPv6
The real reason you need to
pay attention?
You already deployed IPv6...
you just didn’t know it
For the majority of current OS flavors
IPv6 is enabled and on by
default
IPv6 is preferred
There are IPv6 transition

For Windows…
IPv6 transition

Does your company have compliance
requirements?
So… how do you pass a
compliance audit when you
have a protocol running on...
Did you pause at all and think…
It is easier to adopt and
support IPv6 then to run away
from or ignore it
It is less expensive in the long
run too

What problems will my company see?
First, it will be much harder
for your employees to get
public IPv4 addresses at
home (...
This will financial impact your
business and how productive
your employees are
CGN is NOT a WIN, it is
expensive and kicks the can

Stick to increments of 4!

What has taken you so long?!?!?
Windows XP EOS April 8, 2014
This means you are deploying a
newer OS. So you WILL be
dealing with IPv6
IPv6 is the future and the
future is NOW!

Getting Serious About IPv6: Go Big or Go Home

Have you been scratching your head wondering what this IPv6 thing is all about and how it might impact you? Have you seen an IPv6 address and wondered “How in the world do I subnet that?” Have you been praying to a deity that you will get to retire before you ever have to deal with IPv6? Does your IT team have ANY experience with IPv6 at all? Face it, it’s 2013 and you and your company don't know squat about IPv6. IANA ran out of IPv4 in 2011, APNIC and RIPE effectively ran out in 2011 and 2012 respectively, and ARIN is due to run out in 2014. So, what is your IPv6 strategy?

This session starts with explaining the current status of IPv4 and IPv6. It covers the desperate measures that the industry is adopting to extend the life of IPv4 and how it will affect your business use of the Internet. Next, it provides best practices for how to deploy IPv6, the gotchas and common mistakes you and your team will make along the way, and how to fix them. Finally, it will wrap up with some resources and next steps to get your IPv6 adoption moving.

Key Takeaways:

Why you need to move to IPv6 for your Enterprise
The impact to your business of staying on IPv4 only
What to do next to get started with IPv6 in your Enterprise

Who Should Attend:
Enterprise Network Managers, Directors of IT and CTOs

  2. 2. Getting Serious About IPv6 By Ed Horley Principal Solutions Architect, Groupware Technology & Co-Chair of the California IPv6 Task Force April 2014
  3. 3. About me Ed Horley @ehorley (twitter) Author of Practical IPv6 for Windows Administrators from Apress Co-chair of the California IPv6 Task Force Annual MVP recipient since 2004
  4. 4. Why you need to pay attention to IPv6… now
  5. 5. In less than a year ARIN runs out of IPv4 addresses
  6. 6. So what?
  7. 7. This is what everyone talks about – there are no more IPv4 addresses!
  8. 8. Honestly, this isn’t why you need to pay attention to IPv6
  9. 9. The real reason you need to pay attention?
  10. 10. You already deployed IPv6... you just didn’t know it
  11. 11. For the majority of current OS flavors IPv6 is enabled and on by default IPv6 is preferred There are IPv6 transition technologies in Windows There is zeroconf capabilities in all the OS’s using IPv6 There are mDNS or LLMNR capabilities using IPv6 IPv6 & IPv4 on the same OS is called dual-stack IPv6 configures link-local address automatically IPv6 will connect with link- local IPv6 will dynamically build addresses IPv6 has several address mechanisms – does your team know them?
  12. 12. For Windows… IPv6 transition technologies are on by default If you deployed Windows Vista, 7, 8 or Server 2008, 2008R2, 2012 or 2012R2, congratulations!... …You deployed IPv6, you just didn’t do any planning Do you understand the impact of turning IPv6 off? Do you understand the impact of turning off IPv6 transition technologies? Is your staff educated enough to know how to do either?
  13. 13. Does your company have compliance requirements? So… how do you pass a compliance audit when you have a protocol running on your network you don’t understand? How educated is your staff on understanding IPv6? Would they know it if they saw it? Even if you think you have turned IPv6 off on your equipment, how often do you actually audit and check to see if it is running? Do you perform network captures to understand what is or is not using IPv6?
  14. 14. Did you pause at all and think…
  15. 15. It is easier to adopt and support IPv6 then to run away from or ignore it
  16. 16. It is less expensive in the long run too
  17. 17. Because… You will have purchased the right equipment to support IPv6 the first time Your staff has the knowledge to manage and mitigate any issues with IPv6 (avoiding downtime) You have less concerns around compliance You understand how your applications and services work over IPv6 Deploying new OS’s with IPv6 support are not as difficult
  18. 18. Impact if I only stay on IPv4
  19. 19. The transition is going to be ugly, for everyone For service providers, they are starting to adopt and deploy IPv6 But… They need to extend the life of IPv4 due to the slow adoption of IPv6 They do this with Carrier Grade NAT or CGN But… CGN breaks IPv4 uniqueness CGN exasperates IPv4 port exhaustion issues CGN compounds stateful NAT issues
  20. 20. Your users will start experiencing things like: http://isoc.org/wp/ietfjournal/?p=262
  21. 21. What problems will my company see? First, it will be much harder for your employees to get public IPv4 addresses at home (DSL or Cable) This will cause problems for VPN, VoIP, Video and Collaboration depending on how they are deployed Second, as partners, 3rd parties and employees start getting IPv6 and you stay on IPv4, their connection will be proxied to you Because these sessions are proxied, you lose the ability to have end to end connectivity (IPv6 -> IPv6/v4 proxy -> IPv4)
  22. 22. This will financial impact your business and how productive your employees are
  23. 23. CGN is NOT a WIN, it is expensive and kicks the can down the road
  24. 24. IPv6 Subnetting Best Practices Stick to increments of 4!
  25. 25. You need to Get Serious about IPv6
  26. 26. How do I get started?
  27. 27. IPv6 Technical Resources
  28. 28. IPv6 Deployment Resources
  29. 29. “At the current rate of acceleration, we can expect the majority of the Internet to be IPv6-enabled around the end of 2015.” - Own DeLong, ARIN Advisory Council “No longer is IPv6 adoption "just around the corner." It's here.” - Erik Nygren, Chief Architect for Akamai “At MCI, we have made a full commitment to implement and deploy IPv6 during 2005.” - Vinton Cerf, frm SVP MCI and current Chief Internet Evangelist for Google
  30. 30. What steps do I need to take?
  31. 31. Education You, your staff and your partners need to understand IPv6 This means getting educated on IPv6 How to design, deploy, operate and maintain a network running IPv6… You will also need to understand impacts of a dual-stack environment You will need to have an education plan and resources in place for staff This does not happen overnight, start now!
  32. 32. Have a plan Once your staff is educated it is much easier to build a plan A plan that is tailored to your business needs and requirements A plan that accounts for what your business does Without a plan you will fail, especially if you deploy IPv6 without one Your plan should include testing and validation of both network and apps You will need a lab – trust me on this one
  33. 33. Build a core team You will need people from every team Why? Because while IPv6 at first glance appears to be a networking only function… You will quickly figure out that the application teams need to understand it The database team will need to know it The helpdesk will have to troubleshoot it, etc.
  34. 34. Understand the business impacts You many have critical line of business applications that do not work with IPv6 Or partners in parts of the world might only have IPv6 as a protocol option Understand what IPv6 impacts before it is a surprise You may have third party software or solutions that do not support IPv6 If the majority of your business is on the Internet then supporting IPv6 is critical Are all your teams ready?
  35. 35. I still don’t believe I will be using IPv6 anytime soon
  36. 36. If you are FINALLY migrating off Windows XP What has taken you so long?!?!?
  37. 37. Windows XP EOS April 8, 2014
  38. 38. This means you are deploying a newer OS. So you WILL be dealing with IPv6
  39. 39. IPv6 is the future and the future is NOW!
