So far, February has been a busy month for the TXv6TF. Stephan Lagerholm spoke on the 17th at a IT security conference for the University of Texas System on IPv6. His talk is available here. Stan Barber spoke on the 23rd at the annual TTVN conference. Stan’s talk is available here.
Stan Barber, chair of TXv6TF, is speaking and will be part of a panel at the upcoming IEEE Globecomm meeting in Houston this week. This is the 2nd year that Stan has spoken at the IEEE Globecomm event and the 10th year that IEEE has engaged the IPv6 Forum to assemble a group of IPv6 experts for an afternoon on IPv6. This will happen Wednesday, December 7. For more information, check the IEEE Globecomm website. A copy of the slides from this talk are available.

The list of Speakers and Topic for the 2011 TXv6TF Fall Event is now final.
Bill Cerveny of Arbor Networks has a great post on IPv6 Fragmentation. It works a bit differently in IPv6 from IPv4 and it’s a very important difference. This is especially true when considering how to implement a security policy. Fragmentation is one of the few uses of IPv6 extension headers seen regularly in the wild today and must use Path-MTU to work effectively.

Light Reading’s IPv6: The Time is Now event in New York City had a pantheon of great speakers. This article summarizes important points from the speakers at the event.
A good paper to share with those in your company that handle on-line marketing has been released by Martin Longo, CTO of real-time identity firm Demandbase. The paper is called â€œTransition to IPv6: Why Online Marketers Should Care. If you think itâ€™s just ITâ€™s problem, think againâ€ and makes the case for thinking about IPv6 now and not be caught unprepared during the transition.
The mid-September Fall TXv6TF Summit agenda is starting to take shape. Today, TXv6TF announced that there will be a 3-hour hands on lab at the end of the 2nd day of the summit (September 15, 2011). This lab requires no prior experience with IPv6 and will be consist of the following agenda:
- Short lecture – IPv6 addressing
- Lab 1 – Configure network device with IPv6 SLAAC address
- Lab 2 – Configure network device with IPv6 static address
- Lab 3 – Configure network device for basic IPv6 routing between VLANs
- Lab 4 – Configure network device for OSPFv3
The lab will be lead by Jeff Carrell and is free, but advanced registration is required and seats are limited. Each participant must bring a laptop with any operating system that has VPN (PPTP) and telnet capability in order to participate in these labs.
