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.
