We're having a meetup on April 11, 2013 at LivingSocial in Reston. As always, we'll have food and drinks.
This month our presenter is Joe Klein, another local to the NoVa area. Fire talks are always welcome, as well. We also expect to have several Fire Talks this month. If you have something you want to share with the group, bring it with you (and don't worry about slides). Tool demos, proof of concept code, or a rundown on current events are all great.
The abstract for Joe's presentation is below:
With the need to connect over 20 Billion devices by 2020, the IPv4
Internet with its maximum of 4 billion addresses has run out of
steam. The impact has been more complexity for networks, operations and applications. In fact, the implementation of Network Address
Translation requires all devices between the web user and the web
application to add more complex code, which has lead to slower operation and higher cost to develop and manage systems.
IPv4's replacement as of June 2012, IPv6, is considered ready for
prime time. Today, over 1.5% Internet connect via IPv6 to Google
every day. In short, IPv6 is no longer a should, but a must. That is,
if you plan on staying in business and connected with your customers. This presentation will discuss:
- How do you know your customers are using IPv6?
- What methods of implementations are available and what are their impacts?
- What changes need to be made on your ISP, networks, applications,
logging and security to support IPv6?
- What are some of the security issues that may arise if not implemented correctly?
