Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) is nearly thirty years old. This
critical part of the Internet’s infrastructure is approaching its end of
life, as the last five unallocated IPv4 address blocks were delegated to
Regional Internet Registries on February 3, 2011. This won’t have an
immediate impact on the way people use the Internet, but both dwindling
IPv4 address availability and the requirement to start using IPv6 will
impact the way that Federal Agencies and commercial businesses provide
Internet services.

The Defense Research and Engineering Network (DREN) started using IPv6
in 2003. DREN has provided it users with servers, services, and client
applications using IPv6 since then. As the Internet transition from IPv4
to IPv6 plays out, DREN will continue providing a secure,
high-performance infrastructure using both IPv4 and IPv6.

DREN also provides lessons-learned from its years of experience with
IPv6 on an extensive knowledge base. This is publicly available on the
DoD’s High Performance Computing Modernization Program web site
