9:30 AM IPv6 Deployment in South Africa

It’s been five years since World IPv6 Launch, when thousands of Internet Service Providers, home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world came together to permanently enable IPv6 on their products and services. Where are we now on the path to full global IPv6 adoption? We’ll discuss the current state of IPv6 adoption, within South Africa and around the world.

10:00 AM An IPv6 Case Study
10:30 AM BREAK
11:00 AM Panel Discussion: MANRS, Routing Security, and Collaboration

Collaboration and shared responsibility are two pillars supporting the Internet’s growth and success. While the global routing system has worked well, it has significant security challenges that we must address. In this panel, security experts will discuss how we can create a culture of collective responsibility and improve the global routing system, including an introduction to the “Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security”.

11:30 AM NAT64 experiments and NAT64Check tool
12:30 PM LUNCH
1:30 PM Introduction to DNSSEC and Why We Need It

DNSSEC helps prevent attackers from subverting and modifying DNS messages and sending users to wrong (and potentially malicious) sites. So what needs to be done for DNSSEC to be deployed on a large scale? We’ll discuss the reasons for deploying DNSSEC, examine some of the challenges operators have faced, and address those challenges and move deployment forward.

2:00 PM A DNSSEC Case Study
2:30 PM What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved

What’s happening at the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)? What RFCs and Internet-Drafts are in progress related to IPv6, DNSSEC, Routing Security/Resiliency, and other key topics? We’ll give an overview of the ongoing discussions in several working groups and discuss the outcomes of recent Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, and provide a preview of what to expect in future discussions.

3:30 PM Panel Discussion: IPv6 Success Stories

In this session, network operators will share their IPv6 success stories and lessons learned along the way that can help other managers of networks deploy IPv6. How did they do it? What technical, organizational, and political challenges did they face? Panelists will discuss the stages of IPv6 implementation—creating the business case for management buy-in, initiating a planning process, flipping the switch, and, finally, gathering measurements and proving success.

4:30 PM Closing Remarks
