Chapter 9. IPv6

You appreciate the detailed control of the routing structure that you possess under IPv4 with Policy Routing. You ponder the scope and uses of the various parts of Policy Routing itself within the definition of your current IPv4 network. But you know that IPv4 is in transition to a more powerful and comprehensive protocol, IPv6.

With your knowledge of the workings and the reasoning behind Policy Routing under IPv4 you wonder how and what IPv6 will change in Policy Routing. To this end, this chapter explores IPv6 and especially the relationships of IPv6 to the core Policy Routing structures. At the end of the chapter you will see where Policy Routing fits into this new protocol suite and what the future will hold.
