Commerce IPv6 RFC News

I understand that the winter NANOG meeting had a panel session about
futures etc. I have been told by Doug Montgomery from NIST, who
attended the session, that Tony
Hain (from Cisco) pointed out that DoC has an RFC out on this topic and
suggested that interested
parties find the call and reply.

The following announcement provides links to the Commerce IPv6 RFC for
interested parties who may wish to participate.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has formed an IPv6 Task Force to study
deployment issues. The Task Force has published an RFC (Request for
Comments) in the January 21, 2004 Federal Register, inviting
parties to comment on a variety of IPv6-related issues. We have also
posted the RFC on our website, at,
along with a press announcement at Our
comment deadline is March 8, 2004.

We hope that you and your affiliated organizations will comment in our
proceeding and look forward to
your help in building a solid public record for our IPv6 study.

Please contact me if you have questions.
