IPv6 Advanced Protocols Implementation is the second installment of a two-volume series on IPv6 and the KAME implementation. This book discusses those protocols that are found in more capable IPv6 devices, are commonly deployed in more complex IPv6 network environments, or are not specific to IPv6 but are extended to support IPv6. Specifically, this book engages the readers in advanced topics such as routing, multicasting, DNS, DHCPv6, mobility, and security.
This two-volume series covers a wide spectrum of the IPv6 technology, help the readers establish solid and empirical understanding on IPv6 and the KAME reference implementation paralleled by none.
- Extensive code listings with meticulous line-by-line explanation of rationale and use for KAME snapshot implementations on advanced IPv6 related protocols, including:
- Unicast and multicast routing and DNS client based on KAME snapshot dated April 2003, which are a base of more recent versions of BSD variants
- Mobile IPv6 based on KAME snapshot dated July 2004, a predecessor version of the "SHISA" implementation
- DHCPv6 based on KAME snapshot dated May 2005, a base of the WIDE-DHCPv6 implementation available at SourceForge today
- Numerous diagrams and illustrations help in visualizing the implementation
- In-depth discussion of the standards provides intrinsic understanding of the specifications
- An introduction to the IP security protocols along with the use of the racoon key exchange daemon
- Two CD-ROMs filled with the complete KAME IPv6 protocol stack and FreeBSD software
- The only authoritative reference "cookbook" for anyone interested in advanced IPv6 topics and protocols
- Line-by-line walk through of real code helps the reader master IPv6 implementation
- Comprehensive in scope, based on a working standard, and thoroughly illustrated to bring the protocols alive
