Summary:

      The continuous growth of the global Internet requires that the overall architecture evolve to accommodate new technologies that support increasing numbers of users, applications and services. Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is designed to enable ongoing Internet expansion.

      This thesis discusses the new IPv6 protocol suite by comparing, where possible, the IPv6 protocol suite to similar features or concepts that currently exist in IPv4. This thesis discussed how IPv6 resolves IPv4 protocol design issues, the new IPv6 header and extension headers, Internet Control Message Protocol Version 6 (the replacement for ICMP for IPv4), IPv6 Neighbor Discovery processes that manage interaction between neighboring IPv6 nodes, and IPv6 address auto configuration. During developments and implementations stages, a great deal of expectations has been shown for IPv6 that the future of internet will be based on. It is important to gain an understanding of this strategic protocol to begin planning for the eventual transition to IPv6.
