IPv6, an Internet Protocol for Efficient Expansion Capacity in Addressing and Routing
On February 3, 2011 the current version of the Internet IPv4 was depleted of addresses. Since the Internet today uses IPv4 for 99% of the traffic, it will be a slow migration to IPv6.1.The shortage of addresses has led to the introduction of IPv6 which has 128-bit (16-byte) source and destination IP addresses. Many organizations do not see a reason to convert to IPv6 and believe they are not running IPv6.2 whether an organization knows it or not, any laptop/PC running Vista or Windows 7 is a vulnerability from which attacks can come that will be invisible to IPv4 networks.
