Christian Huitema is the former Chair of the Internet Activities Board and is active in the IPv6 effort. IPv6: The New Internet Protocol is a straightforward technical description of the various RFCs that together make up the IPv6 specification. Interestingly, the competition for this book is not so much Stewart Miller's book, but the RFCs themselves, which are clearly written and well organized. However, Huitema provides additional explanation for the purpose of various features and for the operation of the protocol. Huitema's book is based on the latest Internet draft documents, rather than the 1995 RFCs.
