Feds Adopt IPv6 by June 2008?

I read OMB: IPv6 by June 2008 today, which says:

"The federal government will transition to IP Version 6 (IPv6) by June 2008, said Karen Evans, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Office of Management and Budget’s administrator of e-government and information technology.

'Once cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 network backbones are ready, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 applications and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r elements will follow,' she said today while testifying before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 House Government Reform Committee."

Riiight. Be prepared to see this slip to, oh, maybe never. The Federal government is also supposed to be securing its systems, and its report card is still lousy. Agencies have also known since Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (Aug 04) that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y needed to implement smart cards, but problems are anticipated in meeting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 deadlines.

Marcus Ranum pointed me towards a talk by Bill Cheswick (.ppt) on IPv6 transition realities. It mentions several problems that might prevent IPv6 adoption, like unreasonable demands on routers, hosts which can pick a new IPv6 address for every connection, and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r issues.

Nanog subscriber, right ? ;)

The mailing list thread about $subj seems to have no end in sight, but slashdot did not accept any postings about it ...

With all due respect, I think you're wrong about IPv6 adoption never happening. I suggest you take a look at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 congressional committee hearing of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 29th:

I think it only takes a little imagination to think of scads of uses of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Internet that are impossible today because of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 limitations of IPv4 address space and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poor topology of our IPv4 internet, mostly thanks to NAT. Honestly, IPv6 is going to be widely deployed whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r North America wants it or not, so we'd better play along instead of being left behind.

I don't really see how cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US has much choice in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 matter. I agree with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 above poster that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US needs to get moving or get left behind. China and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs are on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir way. Besides, all modern OSs support IPv6 and a lot of recent network devices do too.
