IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) is the association under the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) of the Internet Society that manages the designation of Internet Protocol delivers to Internet specialist organizations (ISPs). ICANN (a non-legislative association) has now accepted accountability for the errands previously performed by IANA. ISPs thusly assign IP delivers to little organizations, and organizations.

The IPv6 convention characterizes an arrangement of headers, including the fundamental IPv6 header and the IPv6 augmentation headers. The accompanying figure demonstrates the fields that show up in the IPv6 header and the request in which the fields show up.

The accompanying rundown portrays the capacity of every header field.

a. form (4 bit): Indicates the convention form, and will, therefore, contain the number 6.

b. DS byte (8 bit): This field is utilized by the source and switches to recognize the bundles having a place with a similar movement class and along these lines recognize parcels with various needs.

c. stream mark (20 bit): Label for an information stream

d. payload length (16 bit): Indicates the length of the bundle information field.

e. next header (8 bit):  Identifies the sort of header promptly following the IPv6 header.

f. bounce constrain (8 bit): Decremented by one by every hub that advances the parcel. At the point when as far as possible field achieves zero, the parcel is disposed of.

g. source address (128 pieces): The location of the originator of the parcel.

h. goal address ( 128 pieces) : The location of the proposed beneficiary of the bundle.

The augmentation header may incorporate the accompanying:

Jump by-Hop choices

Goal choices

Steering (indicates the middle of the road switches that the course should incorporate compelling an officially characterized way)

Section (Used to isolate bundles that are too expansive for the most extreme unit (MTU) )

Verification and Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP)

IPv6 hosts should bolster the accompanying locations:

Allocated worldwide unicast and anycast addresses (2000::/3)

The loopback address (::1/128)

Connection residential area::/(10), autoconfigured

All-hubs multicast addresses (FF01::1 and FF02::1)

Requested hubs multicast addresses (FF02::1:FF00:/104 and affixing the last 24 bits of the relating unicast or anycast address of the gadget)

Some other relegated multicast addresses (in the range FF00::/8)

Switches ought to also bolster at any rate the accompanying:

Subnet-switch anycast address

All-switches multicast addresses (FF01::2, FF02::2, and FF05::2)

Coming up next are valid about IPv6 address arrange:

The aggregate length of the IPv6 address is 128 bits

The initial 48 bits of the IPv6 worldwide unicast address is utilized for worldwide steering at the Internet Service Provider (ISP) level.

16 bits (after the initial 48-bit worldwide unicast address) are utilized for subnetting, enabling associations to subdivide their system

Multicast addresses are in the range FF00::/8.

In an IPv6 organize, a host would auto be able to design its IP address without the assistance of a DHCP server.

Fundamental tenets:

“:” in every 2 bytes.

heading 0s in each square can be overlooked

“0: every one of the zeros in the middle of 0” can be composed as “::”

IP aide addresses: IP partner addresses forward a customer communicates address, (for example, a DHCP or BOOTP asks for) to a unicast or coordinated communicate address. Partner deliver is required because of the way that switches don’t forward communicate. By characterizing an aide address, a switch will have the capacity to forward communication from a customer to the coveted server or system. There can be in excess of one aide address on a system. The partner address must be characterized by the interface that gets the first customer to communicate.

Note that the “ip unnumbered” direction is utilized to empower IP handling on a sequential interface without doling out a particular IP deliver to the interface.

To empower steering of IPv6 bundles, we have to empower IPv6 on a switch by utilizing the order: Router(config)# ipv6 unicast-directing

To empower IPv6 on an interface, utilize the direction: Router(config-if)#ipv6 empower

To add an IPv6 deliver to an interface : ipv6 address <address>/<prefix> [link-local] [eui-64]

Precedents: ipv6 address 2001:100:1::1/64

To leave the interface unnumbered: ipv6 unnumbered eth 0/0

IPv6 Packet Types:

IPv6 utilizes three kinds of correspondence: Unicast (balanced), Multicast (one-to-many), and Anycast (one-to-nearest). The idea of Broadcast informing is tied with the IPv4 convention and is never again substantial in IPv6. There is no such thing as Crypto case informing. The figure underneath demonstrates these three kinds of correspondences

Unicast 6to4 locations (2002::/16) are utilized to impart between two IPv6/IPv4 hubs over the IPv4 Internet. A 6to4 location consolidates the prefix 2002::/16 with the 32 bits of the general population IPv4 deliver of the hub to make a 48-bit prefix – 2002:WWXX:YYZZ::/48, where WWXX: YYZZ is the colon-hexadecimal portrayal of w.x.y.z, an open IPv4 address.

The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) is the biggest number of bytes an individual datagram can have on a specific information correspondences interface.

All IPv6 systems must help an MTU size of 1280 bytes or more noteworthy. This is on account of IPv6 switches don’t piece IPv6 bundles for the benefit of the source. IPv6 switches drop the bundle and send back an ICMPv6 Type 4 parcel (estimate surpassed) to the source demonstrating the best possible MTU measure. The IPv6 tending to conspire bolsters 128 bits. IPv4 and IPv6 systems can exist at the same time. It is conceivable to burrow IPv6 bundles through IPv4 systems. IPv6 is downwards good with IPv4.

Burrowing is utilized when two hosts utilizing IPv6 need to convey through an area of IPv4.

At the point when a bundle enters and goes through the IPv4 area, IPv6 parcel is typified in IPv4 bundle.

The IPv6 parcel leaves the container when it leaves the locale of IPv4.

The source and goal fields are set to IPv4 locations of passage endpoints.

The IPv4 Protocol field inside the IPv4 header is set to 41 to demonstrate an epitomized IPv6 parcel.

When utilizing the passage, firewalls, as well as switches utilizing parcel sifting, must be arranged to permit IPv4 Protocol 41 bundles to be gotten and sent.

Utilizing a convention interpreter somewhere in the range of IPv6 and IPv4 permits coordinate correspondence between hosts talking an alternate system convention. One of the advantages of NAT-PT is that no progressions are required to existing hosts since all the NAT-PT arrangements are performed at the NAT-PT switch. Clients with existing stable IPv4 systems can present an IPv6 system and utilize NAT-PT to permit correspondence without disturbing the current system. NAT-PT isn’t suggested for a situation in which an IPv6-just system is endeavoring to impart to another IPv6-just system by means of an IPv4 spine or the other way around


Anycast locations can be utilized just by a gadget, not a host

Anycast tends to must not be utilized as the source address of an IPv6 bundle.

The anycast address is distinguished by a prefix linked by a progression of zeros (the interface ID)

2001:db7:A00:1::1/64 is an ipv6 unicast address, where as 2002:db7:c058::/128 is a case of ipv6 anycast address. Note that in anycast ipv6 address prefix is connected by a progression of zeros.

Run of the mill directions that empower ipv6 steering are:


RouterA#configure terminal

RouterA(config)#ipv6 unicast-directing

IPv6 Multicast Addresses utilized by various directing conventions:

RIPv6 : FF02::9

OSPF speaker: FF02::5

OSPF DR and BDR: FF02::6

Multicast Address Node Local::

FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 or FF01::1 All Nodes Address

FF01:0:0:0:0:0:0:2 or FF01::2 All Routers Address

Connection Local:

FF02:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 or FF02::1 All Nodes Address

FF02:0:0:0:0:0:0:2 or FF02::2 All Routers Address

FF02:0:0:0:0:0:0:D or FF02::D All PIM Routers

The fundamental change components are Manual, Teredo, 6 to 4, ISATAP Tunneling, and NAT-PT. GRE is another burrowing innovation that is like the other burrowing advances, and utilized for IPv4 to IPv6 burrowing and the other way around.

GRE: IPv6 movement can be persisted IPv4 GRE burrows utilizing the standard GRE burrowing method. The passages are not attached to a particular traveler or transport convention, yet for this situation, convey IPv6 as the traveler convention with the GRE as the transporter convention and IPv4 or IPv6 as the vehicle convention. The essential utilization of GRE burrows is for stable associations that require standard secure correspondence between two edge switches or between an edge switch and an end framework. The edge switches and the end frameworks must be double stack executions.

NAT-PT: The term NAT-PT remains for Network Address Translation and Protocol Translation. NAT alludes to the interpretation of an IPv4 address into an IPv6 address and the other way around and PT remains for the interpretation of the IPv4 parcel into a semantically identical IPv6 bundle and the other way around. NAT-PT permits local IPv6 hosts and applications to speak with local IPv4 hosts and applications, and the other way around. A NAT-PT gadget lives at the limit between an IPv6 and IPv4 organize

6 to 4: 6to4 empowers double stack gadgets to transmit IPv6 activity over an IPv4 spine through 6to4 transfer servers without the need to physically design burrows. Like ISATAP, the burrowed IPv6 activity is embodied in IP convention 41 parcels on the IPv4 organize. 6to4 might be utilized by an individual host, or by a neighborhood IPv6 organize, yet requires the utilization of an open IPv4 address.

ISATAP: ISATAP (Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol) is an IPv6 change system intended to transmit IPv6 bundles between double stack hubs over an IPv4 organize. Dissimilar to 6over4 (a more established comparative convention utilizing IPv4 multicast), ISATAP utilizes IPv4 as a virtual nonbroadcast various access organize (NBMA) information connect layer, with the goal that it doesn’t require the basic IPv4 arrange foundation to help multicast.

Teredo is a change innovation that gives full IPv6 availability for IPv6-skilled hosts which are on the IPv4 Internet yet which have no immediate local association with an IPv6 organize. Contrasted with other comparative conventions its distinctive element is that it can play out its capacity even from behind system address interpretation (NAT) gadgets, for example, home switches.

Multicast addresses from FF01:: through FF0F:: are held, understood locations. To recognize all hubs for the hub neighborhood and connection nearby extensions, the accompanying multicast addresses are characterized

FF01::1 (hub nearby degree all-hubs address)

FF02::1 (interface neighborhood scope all-hubs address)

To recognize all switches for the hub neighborhood, connect nearby, and site-nearby degrees, the accompanying multicast addresses are characterized:

FF01::2 (hub nearby degree all-switches address)

FF02::2 (interface nearby degree all-switches address)

FF05::2 (site-nearby degree all-switches address)

Mapping IP Multicast delivers to MAC address

The high request 25 bits of the 48-bit MAC addresses are settled and the low request 23 bits are variable.

The high request 9 bits (out of the aggregate of 32 bits) of the IP address are not utilized for mapping into the MAC address. The lower 23 bits are mapped to bring down 23 bits of MAC address.

So the multicast address progresses toward becoming 01-00-5E-7c-06-18. To utilize the 23 low request bits, the primary octet isn’t utilized, and just the last 7 bits of the second octet is utilized. The third and fourth octets are changed over specifically to hexadecimal numbers. The second octet, 252 in parallel is 11111100. On the off chance that you drop the high request bit, it winds up 1111100 or 124 (in decimal), or 7c (in hexadecimal). For the following octet, 6 in hexadecimal is 06. For the last octet, 24 in hexadecimal is 18. In this way, the MAC deliver relating to moves toward becoming 01-00-5E-7c-06-18.

A double stack switch can get demands from both IPv4 and IPv6 customers on a similar interface. This gives a smoother change between the two conventions.

a. Programmed 6to4 is a point-to-multipoint burrowing technique, where the passage goal is resolved from the fringe switch IPv4 address confronting the IPv4 arrange.

b. The fringe switches that delimit the 6to4 passage must help IPv4 and IPv6 and are not designed in the combine.

c. Programmed 6to4 can be utilized to interface two IPv6 organizes also an IPv6 host to an IPv6 arrange.

d. IPv6 arrange is treated as NBMA connect.

e. The IPv4 inserted in IPv6 is utilized to locate the opposite end of the passage.

f. Fringe switches make a passage on a for each bundle premise to other IPv6 Border switches.
