Internet Protocol version 4 is now more than 30 years old. Among other consequences of its advancing age, the public Internet has depleted the available addresses that can be assigned. While several efforts have been developed to address this problem, the true solution is in the implementation of Internet Protocol version 6. In this course, you'll look at three categories of IPv6 addresses and understand their format and structure and you'll explain the process of mapping an IEEE MAC address into a 64-bit EUI format for IPv6 addresses. You'll also learn the types of IPv6 addresses, the characteristics of the IPv6 header, and the common types of ICMPv6 messages. You'll be able to describe changes to the DNS records with IPv6 and finally, you'll become familiar with modifications to common routing protocols used with IPv6.
