  1. 1. -> ::1 Davor Sostaric Ministry of Higer Education, Science and Technology Information Society Directorate Slovenia
  2. 2. Why do we (Gov) care <ul><li>citizens well-being </li></ul><ul><li>market/economy players </li></ul><ul><li>“ normal”civilization values/norms </li></ul><ul><li>History: once very succesfull networks, individual manufacturers platforms, ... </li></ul><ul><li>Evolution or genocide? </li></ul>
  3. 3. We believe <ul><li>IPv6 will rule the Internet – whether we like it or not, with or without us </li></ul><ul><li>Theoretical grounds are well defined; development phase succedeed the draft level; operational stable commercial products exist </li></ul><ul><li>Familiar names can be found in broader production world; they will dictate &quot;de-facto&quot; standards </li></ul><ul><li>Policies/strategies/tactics/... of IPv6 deployment shoud not be led by vendors </li></ul>
  4. 4. Waiting for Godot <ul><li>M arket is obviously not the leading force. </li></ul><ul><li>M aybe some legislative acts could be of some importance (i.e. Directives). </li></ul><ul><li>I t’s time to transfer the research projects outputs to the real life. </li></ul><ul><li>W hat EC instruments exist to actively support IPv6 deployment (within the Government scope, i.e. public eServices, but also for the society by and large) ? </li></ul>
  5. 5. Players (public authorities) <ul><li>Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (Information Society Directorate) is responsible for dealing with IPv6 policies, strategies etc </li></ul><ul><li>Post and Electronic Communications Age ncy rises awareness and collects information and statistics on IPv6 </li></ul><ul><li>Ministry of Public Administration manages public websites, e-Gov services and applications and is responsible for internal governmental and public administration network </li></ul>
  6. 6. Go6 Institute <ul><li>THE Slovenian IPv6 initiative </li></ul><ul><li>Supported by the Government </li></ul><ul><li>Members: a ll main stakeholders </li></ul><ul><ul><li>( i.e. ISPs , NREN, universi ty computer centres , faculty research departments, research institutes, industry, mobile phone operators, national TV broadcaster , national regulator, vendors/suppliers , integrators, etc. ) </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Encouragement <ul><li>Soft approach to market players </li></ul><ul><li>Overall policy approach: Support IPv6 integration </li></ul><ul><li>Government encourages all stakeholders to provide and/or use full IPv6 operations </li></ul><ul><li>Strategy for IPv6 deployment – planned in 2011/2012 </li></ul><ul><li>Study on IPv6 – just delivered </li></ul><ul><li>E ducational plan for governmental internal IT staff is in progress </li></ul>
  8. 8. Transition plan for 4 -> 6 <ul><li>W e see a parallel 4/6 model running for at least a decade as the only possible way </li></ul><ul><li>A transition plan IPv4 to IPv6 for individual actors will be up to them </li></ul><ul><li>Public services under the Gov’s responsibility will be available on parallel coexistence ( 2011) </li></ul><ul><li>More specific acti o ns will be defined by the planned National Strategy </li></ul>
  9. 9. Action examples <ul><li>Gov ernment is through special WG involved in preparation of the Go6 Academy Curriculum </li></ul><ul><li>IPv6 specification document is being prepared as an important tool for including the proper IPv6-capable equipment at various phases in the continuous renewal cycle ( will be mandatory in the public procurement process ) </li></ul>
  10. 10. IPv6 Specification Document <ul><li>Project started on behalf of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology (Information Society Dir) </li></ul><ul><li>Collected and defined: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>all relevant RFC specification (mandatory and optional) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>neccessary skill requirments for the system integrators </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Welcomed by some MS </li></ul><ul><li>Supported by RIPE community </li></ul><ul><li>The European IPv6 Profile? </li></ul>
  11. 11. Message to the MS <ul><li>At EU level define and conduct: </li></ul><ul><li>A unique list of mandatory and optional RFC specifications for different types of ICT equipment </li></ul><ul><li>A methodology for verification and certification procedures for conformance, interoperability and performance testing </li></ul><ul><li>Methodology serves as guidelines for all European accredited and test laboratories </li></ul><ul><li>Neccessary IPv6 knowledge skills and certification for system integrators </li></ul><ul><li>List of RFC specifications and methodology are guidelines for all government and public procurement at EU level </li></ul><ul><li>The d esign of a uniform/harmonised specification sheet including a uniform verification/certification procedure s for testing IPv6 products would reduce expenses and standardize some procedures as well as simplify the ICT equipment procurement process es at EU level. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Maybe an action like NZ <ul><li> </li></ul>
