The next generation Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) also called Iping, which should replace the current generation of IPv4, brings many enhancements over IPv4. IPv4 has been a great success for more than 20 years, since its interception in 1980 but due to limited address space, complex configuration and very important lack of security it does not fulfil the requirement of the exponentially growing internet. Because of inadequate address and for other issues, IPv6 was proposed by the network working group of the Internet Engineering Task-Force (IETF) which provides many new features like quality of services, auto-address configuration, end-to-end connectivity, security, simple routing header and so on.
