IPv6 Essentials, Second Edition provides a succinct, in-depth tour of all the new features and functions in IPv6. It guides you through everything you need to know to get started, including how to configure IPv6 on hosts and routers and which applications currently support IPv6. The new IPv6 protocols offers extended address space, scalability, improved support for security, real-time traffic support, and auto-configuration so that even a novice user can connect a machine to the Internet. Aimed at system and network administrators, engineers, network designers, and IT managers, this book will help you understand, plan for, design, and integrate IPv6 into your current IPv4 infrastructure.

Beginning with a short history of IPv6, author Silvia Hagen provides an overview of new functionality and discusses why we need IPv6. Hagen also shares exhaustive discussions of the new IPv6 header format and Extension Headers, IPv6 address and ICMPv6 message format, Security, QoS, Mobility and, last but not least, offers a Quick Start Guide for different operating systems. IPv6 Essentials, Second Edition also covers:

  • In-depth technical guide to IPv6
  • Mechanisms and Case Studies that show how to integrate IPv6 into your network without interruption of IPv4 services
  • Routing protocols and upper layer protocols
  • Security in IPv6: concepts and requirements. Includes the IPSEC framework and security elements available for authentication and encryption
  • Quality of Service: covers the elements available for QoS in IPv6 and how they can be implemented
  • Detailed discussion of DHCPv6 and Mobile IPv6

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to read Feb. 28 2004
Format:Paperback
"I'd been perusing the writing of an author who had managed to provide excellent information in a manner that I can only describe as joyful. Reading this book is almost like reading a novel by Isaac Asimov. You practically devour the book and once your done, you know you've been somewhere else for a while and you've returned changed...Whether you're ready to start implementing IPv6 or are creating plans for upcoming implementation, 'IPv6 Essentials' will provide the foundation you need to get started." --Jim Huddle, Copyright kickstartnews.com, July 2003 [...]

Format:Paperback
I am an engineer who has some know how in IPv6. This book is the best out of what available today in explaining all IPv6 major subjects. Reading this book can give a whole and a clear picture of what is underneath the hood. I used it to read on a topic and only afterwards I referred for the RFC for the details. Other books that I came across do not do a good job as this book is doing. If you want to really understand how things are working in IPv6, this is the book to go!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for IPv6 Nov. 23 2003
By C Shin
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent book on IPv6 that does not shy away from providing details at every corner of the protocol. I've seen books in the past with twice the pages but hardly provide a fraction of the information you will find in this book, presented in a concise but comprehensive manner.
It is an excellent resource for IPv6 particularly to readers with background in IPv4. Not only does the author try to highlight the differences between the two protocols (take for example how the new header format has evolved), she also explains the motivation behind each change along the way.
Of course, the author's diligent quotation of all relevant RFCs, including the ones being obsoleted where applicable, turns the book into a valuable "hypertext style" reference for IPv6, where the reader can delve further into particular areas of interest.
