IETF na dobri poti, da spremeni IPv4 status v “historical”

Na INTAREA WG meetingu je Wes George iz Time Warner Cable predstavil predlog, da se temeljito zviša zahtevnostni prag, ki je potreben da se IETF začne ukvarjati z razvojem novih zadev na IPv4…

V dokumentu je med ostalim zapisano:

IETF SHOULD continue to update IPv4-only protocols and features to address vital operational or security issues.

IETF work SHOULD update existing IPv4 to IPv6 transition and interworking technologies as necessary to address operational problems encountered during the implementation phase.

IETF work SHOULD continue to make updates to IPv4 protocols and features to facilitate IPv4 decommissioning

IETF work that is not related to the above exceptions MUST be IP version agnostic (because it is implemented above the network
layer) or MUST explicitly support IPv6.

IETF SHOULD NOT initiate new IPv4 extension technology development.

IETF work MAY support IPv6-only applications and protocols, especially in cases where supporting the protocol or feature in
IPv4 would be difficult or impossible.

IETF work SHOULD continue to update IPv4-only protocols and applications to support IPv6 as necessary and appropriate

Razumeti je treba, da “historical” oziroma “deprecated” status ne pomeni, da se protokola ne uporablja več ampak da se ne razvija novih idej na njemu.

Ta predlog počne točno to, le da ne direktno specificira, da je IPv4 obsolete, kar bi bil za IETF (vsaj za nekatere) pravi šok. Pri dokumentu bomo aktivno sodelovali tudi mi, Wes se strinja, da bi to bilo koristno in dobro za dokument.

Za Go6 iz IETF meetinga v Parizu, Jan Žorž
