Today was a significant day in the development of IPv6. Today is IPv6′s Bar Mitzvah, Baha’i, Shinbyu ceremony, Genpuku ceremony and Quinceañera all rolled into one. It was a day where IPv6 could prove to the world that it was ready for duty as the Internet Protocol successor to IPv4. Those are pretty big shoes to fill and IPv6 has had some stumbles in the past decade. This article covers what was learned by this big Internet experiment.
IPv6 has been stuck in this "Chicken and the Egg" problem for years where the ISPs and content providers are pointing fingers at each other. The ISPs didn’t want to deploy IPv6 if their customers weren’t asking for it because there wasn’t any content on the Internet reachable over IPv6. Content providers couldn’t connect their content to the Internet with IPv6 because they lacked IPv6 connectivity options. Additional complications have been added with the discovery of some "IPv6 Brokenness" that exists on the Internet. This has caused many content providers to separate their IPv4-only and their IPv6-only web presence with two URLs. World IPv6 Day was a single 24-hour period where content providers would bravely have their primary web site handle both IPv4 and IPv6 connections. The web site operators published an authoritative A record and AAAA record for their primary FQDN hostname and learn about what problems they encounter.

Back in July 2007, Amith Krishnan, senior product manager for NAP at Microsoft, appeared on my podcast (StillSecure After All These Years podcast) to talk about Microsoft’s announced support for the Trusted Computing Group’s TNC standard, Trusted Network Connect.
As part of that announcement, Microsoft claimed they would open up the NAP agent to other platforms. But rather than develop Linux and Mac NAP clients, Microsoft would make the technology available for third parties who could create NAP agents for non-Microsoft operating systems. True to Amith’s word, UNETsystem announced NAP compatible versions of their AnyClick product for Linux and Macintosh OS X operating systems. Microsoft NAP and network access control (NAC) are technologies I’m very familiar with, having created a product in this space with my former company, StillSecure.

Good Points are collection articles that has helped me out in one way or another. I consider these articles or blogs as having a real answer or a solution that really works in a given situation. I decided to aggregate articles and blogs that I have either used or assisted me in some solution or project. If you run across a Good Point, know that it has a solution or answer to it if the issue matches your current problem.
I decided to aggregate and group these types of articles together due to the fact that I build solutions many times over and as we all know we can now remember everything in IT even though memory is a BIG part this type of career. Not all of us leaves a comment when we find a solution or answer that helps us. So I decided to start grouping any solution or answer that has helped me under the Good Point Category which is another way of spreading the posters answer in the community.
Help Spread the word of good solutions or answers by labeling articles that has help you as a Good Point.
