Abstract/Artist Statement

The internet is one of society’s most influential cyber technologies, it practically surrounds everyone’s life, and the Internet Protocol (IP) has a large influence in the structure of the internet. The introduction of the internet was a phenomena; it reached every geographical area in the world with lightning speed. But the expansion of the internet could not have taken part as it did without IP being a major protocol of TCP/IP suit. The most recent version of IP is IPv4, this version has enhanced the power of the internet to allow a completely new level of use. IP has given the internet a new potential through the innovative applications that it allows users to utilize through the internet. Like all technology, the Internet gets reconstructed and reprogrammed to support more innovative technology, and this doesn’t leave behind IP. IPv4 has now been upgraded to the powerful new protocol called IPv6. My presentation will be describe different sections of the IPv6 protocol. I will cover topics such as what the IPv6 is, and why it is required. I will also articulate several advantages provided by IPv6 that IPv4 doesn’t provide its users. Overall the discussion will be centralized on the security aspects in regards of IPv6.
