For IPv4 the Sunset Begins. For IPv6 the Day Is Just Getting Started

…he X-day, our panel discussed the true impact of the IPv4 address run-out. To mitigate it, Cisco’s Carrier-Grade IPv6 (CGv6) solution is designed to help enable a smooth transition. One interesting observation I’ve seen is how something as obtuse and techie as IPv6  has generated so much interest in the main stream press - such as this article at the Wall Street Journal, Web Running Out of Addresses.  Even my mother asked me about it on the phon…

Hopefully this introductory post will give you a basic idea of how IPv6 works and some initial security concerns. In upcoming posts, I will explain in more detail the security impact on your network of v…

One New Year’s resolution: Less Jargon, Unless It’s Useful

That’s the mobile phone text message that greeted me on New Year’s Eve and for a moment stopped me in my tracks. Then, I burst out laughing for a good 20 seconds. The text was from my college age daughter, who is really smart and consumer-tech savvy, and knows pretty much everything there is to know about using…
