Adoption of new standards by consumer electronics manufacturers is critical to the wider deployment of standards across the Internet. In many cases Internet service providers, content companies and consumers may not move forward with their own new deployments until the devices used on their networks support the new standards. Adoption of these standards is very likely going to influence the purchasing decisions of large consumers of consumer electronics in the coming year.
Additionally, as the security of the Domain Name System (DNS) is critical, vendors need to understand how they can use DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) to secure the connections from their equipment and thwart attackers.
It is our intent to feature the most current and relevant deployment resources and supplement them with newly created deployment articles by the Internet Society where information gaps exist. If you know of a resource you would like featured here, or have recommendations on new resources that can be created to help with deployment, please give us your feedback.
For basic information about IPv6 or DNSSEC, please see the menu options on the left or browse the list of resources for IPv6 and DNSSEC. We have received feedback indicating a desire for the following questions to be answered with resource information for consumer electronics manufacturers. We are currently (1Q 2012) in the process of curating and creating resources to answer these questions. Please check back here soon.
What are common issues associated with supporting IPv6 within a consumer electronics device?
How do I know if my device will properly work on provider IPv6 networks?
Are there case studies available about consumer electronics that support IPv6?
How can I set up an IPv6 test lab?
- Please see the IPv6 Basics page
Why should I care about DNSSEC? What value does it have for my equipment?
What do I need to do to support DNSSEC within my device?
What browsers and other clients support DNSSEC? (i.e. who will use it if I sign my domain?)
