OMB details milestones to move to IPv6

Jason Miller writes in

Agencies may have until June 30, 2008, to transition to Internet Protocol Version 6, but the planning starts now.

The Office of Management and Budget has released a memo [.pdf] that gives agencies until Nov. 15 to assign an official to coordinate the move to the new protocol and complete an inventory of existing routers, switches and hardware firewalls.

Agencies also will have to begin assessing all other existing IP-compliant devices and technologies, as well as perform an impact analysis to determine the cost and operational impacts and risks of migrating to IPv6.
