Abstract [en]

The new version of the Internet Protocol, IPv6, will eventually replace the current version, IPv4. Since this replacement will not take place over night the two protocols have to coexist which creates some problems and some opportunities.

This report analyses some of the issues concerning the change of the Internet Protocol from version 4 to version 6. I examined addressing, security, and the impact on standard services, e.g. DNS and DHCP. The emphasis of this report will be on the issues relevant to implementing an IPv6-stack.

Abstract [sv]

Den nya versionen av internetprotokollet, IPv6, kommer så småningom att ersätta dagens version, IPv4. Då denna versionsväxling inte kommer att ske över en natt måste de två protokollen samexistera vilket kan skapa både problem och möjligheter.

Den här rapporten analyserar några av de frågeställningar som uppstår när man byter internet protokollet från version 4 till version 6. Jag undersökte adressering, säkerhetsfrågor samt inverkan på standardtjänster som DNS och DHCP. Tyngdpunkten i den här rapporten kommer dock att vara kring frågor rörande implementering av en IPv6-stack.
