As Internet service providers and content companies continue to move forward with their IPv6 deployments, it is important for enterprises to enable access to IPv6 resources from their user networks. Even more immediately important is to dual-stack the hosting of your enterprise web and mail services. As the IPv6 user population grows, you want to make sure interaction with your web site and email remains seamless.
Additionally, enterprises need to understand how they can use DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) to secure the communication between the enterprise and its customers and also its vendors. DNSSEC provides a means that you can ensure that customers and partners are talking to your website and not that of an attacker masquerading as your site.
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 enterprises. We are currently (1Q 2012) in the process of curating and creating additional resources to answer these questions. Please check back here soon.
