“IPv6” available in India
The new version internet address “IPv6” is now available in India. This version will provide advantage over previous IPv4 version as it will accommodate larger number of users each assigned with specific address. IPv4 provides limited space and service providers often assign single IP address to many users, making it difficult to identify the end user. But with IPv6, enormous number of distinct IP addresses will be made available making it easier for the security agencies to identify the user.
Who will be responsible for issuing these addresses?
- In India these addresses will be assigned by Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN). These addresses will be many times cheaper than that of IPv4.
