IPv6 Planning (Task Map)

The following table lists different considerations when planning to implement IPv6 on your network.

For Instructions
Prepare your hardware to support IPv6.
Ensure that your hardware can be upgraded to IPv6.
Ensure that your applications are IPv6 ready.
Verify that your applications can run in an IPv6 environment.
Design a plan for tunnel usage.
Determine which routers should run tunnels to other subnets or external networks.
Plan how to secure your networks and develop an IPv6 security policy.
For security purposes, you need an addressing plan for the DMZ and its entities before you configure IPv6.

Decide how you would implement security, such as using IP Filter, IP security architecture (IPsec), Internet Key Exchange (IKE), and other security features of this release.

Create an addressing plan for systems on the network.
Your plan for addressing servers, routers, and hosts should be in place before IPv6 configuration. This step includes obtaining a site prefix for your network as well as planning IPv6 subnets, if needed.
