Editorial Reviews


Read the entire review of this book.

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.

From the Publisher

As the Internet evolves, so too must its communication protocols. This book, written by the Chair of the Internet Architecture Board and author of the bestselling ROUTING IN THE INTERNET, is a first look at the next generation Internet Protocol (IP as in TCP/IP) known as IP Version 6. The Internet Protocol is the glue that holds the Internet together and that will make possible new applications, such as multicasting, requiring increased bandwidth. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

OK intro for technical readers, but there is a lot here that is completely out of date since the book was written in 1997. Lots of new and revised standards have been published since then.

IPv6 is still going thru some changes. While the book is not as up to date as I would like it to be, it does a pretty good job of explaining what is (was) different from IPv4 and the why of it. As for comparisons to IPv4, they can be found throughout different sections of the book, tho not in detail. Overall, a good guide to IPng w/ good explainations.

This is a good book written by someone who really knows the material.
The book *is* somewhat out of date - a three years old book on a developing protocol cant be current [and it's my expectation that a new edition would be printed soon], but it's a very good way to get the big picture about it before starting to read the fine details in the RFCs.
As other reviewers wrote, the comparison between IPv4 and IPv6 is a little lacking, but this book is *not* intended to be read as one's first text on IP - it's audience is people who are already familiar with IPv4.
