IPv6: Windows Server 2003 Supports a More Secure IP Â– Sort of
When you think of version 6, the Â“next generationÂ” of the Internet Protocol, your first thought is probably more available addresses. Indeed, the primary reason for developing a new version of IP was the anticipated critical shortage of addresses under the 32 bit addressing scheme of version 4. However, IPv6 provides for more than just an increase in the number of available addresses. It is also designed to provide for better performance and, even more important in todayÂ’s business world, better security of IP communications.
