Abstract : This project examined the question of U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) adoption of the Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) and recommends actions by the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA) towards ensuring the integrity of DoD networks during and after the transition. We pay attention to infrastructure readiness, commercial carriers, security implications and tradeoffs and discuss timing implications and where DoD might rationally position itself on an S-adoption curve.
