An introduction to IPv6, how it works & why you would want to use it. The talk will cover various address assignment protocols & techniques, how to configure your Linux system for IPv6, and how to troubleshoot IPv6. Other topics may include (time permitting) transition mechanisms, security, routing, address numbering plans, and deployment strategies.
