This is an update of a survey SSAC conducted in 2007. The committee expects that the responses will provide the community with some insight into the ease or challenges it will face as we exhaust IPv4 addresses and adopt IPv6 at increasingly faster rates. The meta-issues the committee hopes to explore include:
- How broadly is IPv6 transport supported by commercial firewalls?
- Is IPv6 support available from commercial firewalls for all market segments?
- Which commonly used security enforcement features can be deployed from commercial firewalls when IPv6 transport is used?
- Can an organization enforce a security policy from commercial firewalls when using IPv6 that is commensurate to a policy currently supported when IPv4 is used?
Vendors of commercial firewalls and business users are invited to participate in the survey online here.
