IPv4 to IPv6.
RESOLUTION 101 (Rev. Guadalajara, 2010) Internet
Protocol-based networks
RESOLUTION 63 (Hyderabad, 2010): IP address allocation
and encouraging the deployment of IPv6 in the developing
Resolution 64 of the World Telecommunication
Standardization Assembly (Johannesburg, 2008), which
encourages the deployment of IPv6;
Opinion 5 of the World Telecommunication Policy Forum
(Lisbon, 2009), on capacity building in support of the
adoption of IPv6;
Invites the ITU to
1. accelerate activities associated with WTSA-08
Resolution 64 as well as consider the questions of
providing trust and security in the use of IPv6

ITU IPv6 Group
Council 2009
approved the
recommendation that the
Director of TSB, in close
collaboration with the
Director of BDT,
convenes a group open
to the membership of
ITU-T and ITU-D to
conduct further activities
toward the
The Group on IPv6 is open to all ITU
Member States, and Sector Members of
ITU-T and ITU-D.
Chairman: Mr. Mohammed Al Khamis
(United Arab Emirates)
To draft a global policy proposal for the
reservation of a large IPv6 block, taking
into consideration the future needs of
developing countries, as outlined in
paragraph 23 of C09/29.
To further study possible methodologies
and related implementation mechanisms
to ensure ‘equitable access’ to IPv6
resource by countries.
To further study the possibility for ITU to
become another Internet Registry, and
propose policies and procedures for ITU to
manage a reserved IPv6 block.
To further study the feasibility and
advisability of implementing the CIR
model for those countries who would
request national allocations.
To assist in the implementation of the
project called for by Resolution 64, taking
into account the needs at regional and
national level in terms of capacity building
and allocation policies.
To report to ITU Council
Possibility: ITU to become
another Internet Registry
 IPv6 has been developped as an evolution of
IPv4 to enable IPv6 to provide many new
features while building on the foundational
concepts that made IPv4 so successful.
 IPv6 Allocation: Many options are possible.
E.g The Proposed Country based Internet
Registries (CIR) Model: IPv6 Address
allocation system by ITU to CIRs
 Guidelines and best practices would be useful
for Developing Countries for the IPv6
Implementation in Mobile and Fixed
Networks taking into consideration, the
Security and QoS issues.
 IPv6 security can be improved compared to
IPv4 by the mandatory implementation of
IPsec, adding the security measures at the IP
 As IPv6 security is actively discussed and new
issues appear, it is necessary to keep
your information updated
