The CAv6TF is excited to help out the Security B-Sides with their San Francisco event happening Mon Feb 14th and Tues Feb 15th at the Zeum in San Francisco. This event is around the corner from RSA so please drop by if you are interested in seeing IPv6 in action. We were able to set up and deliver IPv6 for the event for both wired and wireless for presenters and users.
Hopefully with a bit of exposure to security professionals, IPv6 will gain their interest and help them ask good questions of vendors and suppliers what the state of their IPv6 readiness is today and their road map for the future.
IANA this morning did a formal hand over of the last 5 /8 blocks. The Internet Society has a nice statement on the event. Here is ARIN’s press statement. Oddly enough, there doesn’t appear to be any formal statement on the IANA website. If you aren’t seeing the swimming turtle on the upper right of our page you aren’t using IPv6 to view the site. It might be time to start working on plans to get on IPv6.
The V6 World Congress will be held Feb 8-11th in Paris, France. There is a pretty impressive line up for speakers for the event including Fred Baker, Bob Hinden, Erik Kline and others. If you have the time and budget it is likely going to be a great conference.
For those that missed the gogoNET LIVE! IPv6 Conference in San Jose, CA this last November you are in luck. All the video from the event has been posted and is now available. In addition, the presentation slide decks are also available to download.
We have updated the California IPv6 Task Force website to utilize WordPress and syndication feeds. The original cav6tf.org website content can be found at http://cav6tf.org/archive/ and we will be reproducing some of that content in the WordPress format too.
We hope the new site will be an improvement in getting IPv6 content that is relevant for those living and/or working in California. If you have a business or do business in California then we hope this will be a resource you find helpful.
The California IPv6 Task Force, a not for profit 501(c)(3), devotes our resources to IPv6 use, education, and cyber security in the Western United States through advocacy, research, events, and collaboration among its base of volunteer members.
