Wednesday, June 8
Science Park Amsterdam
For information about this yearʼs
World IPv6 Launch, please go to ipv6launch.nl!
We would like to thank all our visitors and speakers for this wonderful day.
Below, you will find PDF files of the presentations, and the video of our full plenary session. Enjoy!
IPv6 monitoring lab
24h of measurements, observation, experiments and more. We did in fact stay open all night with speakers, staff and students. The location was the private lab of the System and Network Engineering master's programme at the University of Amsterdam.
Between 10.00 and 15.00, we had talks on IPv6, security, and lots more.
Tutorials and hands-on
IPv6 introductory training (Nathalie Trenaman and Sandra Bras from RIPE NCC)
The focus of the RIPE NCC IPv6 Tutorial is to raise awareness about IPv6
and the current best practices for deploying it. We also cover IPv6
Internet addressing policies and how to obtain IPv6 address space.
Note that if you have already deployed IPv6 on your network, this tutorial
may not be appropriate for you.
Protecting your IPv6 network's vital parts (Bernd Kunze from Juniper EMEA)
Functionalities of several key components in IPv6 (like there are
ICMPv6, DNS6 and DHCP6) and what are the involved security implications.
How can JUNOS help with implementing IPv6 in the most easiest way and
prevent wrong implementations from being installed.
A Cisco view on IPv6 (Nicole Wajer from Cisco)
What do you need in order to succesfully run IPv6 to maintain your
business? What are things to consider when turning on IPv6 on your
Cisco equipment? How can I turn it on and what techniques can be
used while keeping in mind the pro's and con's of the available
Implementation and experiences
IPv6-only office networking (Dyonisius Visser from Terena)
The TERENA Secretariat nework has been dual stack for 8 years. This
year we started to switch off IPv4 in several places.
This presentation lists the practical steps that were taken, and what
results have been achieved so far.
IPv6 mobility (Georg Mittenecker from Fachhochschule Joanneum in Graz)
The results of our measurements, using already available IPv6
implementations, show that currently only for less critical applications
such as file transfer or web browsing, we actually can call that "seamless
handover" from a user's perspective. For real-time communication, however,
the implementation of proposed new technologies such as Fast MIPv6,
Hierarchical MIPv6, or a combination of them is essential.
IPv6: de (on)vermijdbare problemen (Iljitsch van Beijnum)
IPv6 bestaat al ruim 15 jaar, in Azië zijn al geen IPv4-adressen te
krijgen en toch meten we op dit moment het IPv6-gebruik in cijfers ver
achter de komma. Nu meer en meer mensen zich in het nieuwe protocol
verdiepen is ook de kritiek niet van de lucht. Terecht of onterecht?
Welke problemen waren te vermijden en welke niet? En wat kunnen we op
dit moment nog doen om de overgang naar IPv6 zo soepel mogelijk te
IPv6 hosting in the Netherlands (Michiel Steltman from the Dutch Hosting Provider Association)
IPv6 experiences at AMS-IX (Ariën Vijn from AMS-IX)
In the last few months the growth of IPv6 traffic volume at AMS-IX
has clearly accelerated. Along with that the amount of operational
issues grew as well. This talk is about identifying and
troubleshooting these issues.
Software and applications
IPv6 aspects in Software (Hans van Oosten from the Software Improvement Group)
We will address the potential dependency of software on IP and way
to assess the associated risks in application software.
6bed4: IPv6-only embedded devices on any network (Rick van Rein)
Embedded devices are cramped in resources, and may well end up slowing
down the transition to IPv6. The 6bed4 tunneling mechanism has
been designed precisely to counter that.
IPv6 as a business case - issues and challenges (Tünde Balint from KPMG)
Enabling enterprises to use IPv6 isn’t only an IT challenge. IT people
should shout out and make the business world realize that this
transition is a necessity. In this presentation we'll describe the most
important issues businesses should take into account when planning for a
successful transition to IPv6.
IPv6 deployment in Nederland (Arjen Holtzer from TNO)
Twice a year TNO monitors the status of IPv6 deployment in The Netherlands.
This study aims to gain insight in how far Dutch organisations are with
preparing for IPv6 in comparison with other European countries. This is done
by collecting information and measurement data and through surveys and
interviews among different kinds of stakeholders. Attention is paid to
motivations and bottlenecks that are experienced by users and service
providers. The latest and third measurement will be published at the start
of June 2011. During this session the findings of this measurement are
presented and compared to past measurements. There is also room for
questions and discussion on IPv6 deployment in The Netherlands.
Deployment and next steps (Maarten Botterman from GNKS)
Whereas The Netherlands is leading in broadband access to the Internet,
and many innovations origin from here, we do not lead in IPv6 deployment.
Should we lead, and what would it take to lead? Next to the importance of
progressing IPv6 on a global level we will use this session to find answers to those questions.
Measuring World IPv6 Day (Emile Aben from RIPE NCC)
The RIPE NCC is going to extensively measure World IPv6 Day. Emile will be
showing hot-off-the-press results on the World IPv6 Day event, as well as
significant trends he saw in IPv6 uptake over the last few months.
IPv6 security (Sander Steffann from Stichting IPv6 Nederland)
A very broad overview of potential IPv6 security problems and ways to handle them.
Hacking IPv6 (Walter Belgers from Madison Gurkha)
Built into IPv6 are several options to make IP traffic more safe.
Unfortunately, using those can introduce leaks as well. If only by enabling
IPv6 and forgetting to properly set up filtering. In this presentation we
will focus on new risks that the introduction and use of IPv6 may involve.
Besides the security options IPv6 has a much larger address space than IPv4.
This has consequences for penetration testing. For example, will you still be
able to search for specific systems within such a large network range? Several
techniques have already been developed to do this. These are also discussed in
Nieuwe security-aspecten van IPv6 (Bert Hubert from FOX-IT)
In dit praatje wordt enige theorie verschaft over IPv6
implementaties en een checklist gepresenteerd van gerelateerde punten
die aandacht verdienen in verband met beveiliging. Te denken hierbij
valt aan autoconfiguratie, tunnels en het risico op privacy-schendingen,
juridische aspecten en nat64/dns64.
Main conference (with video)
Later on, we fully updated you on the state of IPv6 in the world and in the Netherlands.

IPv6 challenge: win an iPad 2!
The organizing committee of the IPv6 Day event at the Science Park Amsterdam challenges
everyone (not only students!) to come up with novel demonstrations of the use of IPv6.
Your demonstration can include servers, clients, monitoring, novel applications, novel
tooling, visualisation, IPv6 for real dummies, whatever you can come up with. Your
contribution must be demonstrated on the infrastructure at the SNE laboratory on IPv6 day.
An independent jury will go over the challenge contributions and visit them during the
morning of IPv6 Day. The jury consists of Erik Huizer, Olaf Kolkman and Jan Zorz, who
will all be speaking at the event, and chair Cees de Laat.
The winners will be announced in the plenary session in the afternoon, where they will
pitch their idea and implementation.
The Amsterdam IPv6 Day collaborated with the AMS-IX
MORE IP event, which focused on a
broader discussion of the future of IP in general.
