Ruri Hiromi, WIDE Project/Intec NetCore

Ruri Hiromi is a researcher at Intec Netcore, Inc. She is a streering members of WIDE\'s R&D activity. Hiromi-san works on the IPv6Fix project, fixing relatively small but important technical issues on implementation, configuration, and operation with IPv6.
Abstract: IPv6 is now available for major types of equipment, OSes, and applications, and is also deployed in major ISP backbones. However, there are a small number of erroneous implementations that do not work in IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack environments. When an IPv6 user encounters a problem, a frustrated user often hastily concludes that the problem lies with IPv6. We are concerned that such situations could lead to agitation among IPv6 users.

The IPv6-fix project aims to identify and document issues and pitfalls in IPv6 deployment. Such problems are often found at boundaries of specifications, implementations, and operation. The project covers a wide range of real-world topics, including on-link assumptions, DNS servers and resolvers, TCP connection establishment, quality of the IPv6 Internet, and firewalls. In this talk, we will describe IPv6-fix activities, illustrate issues by examples, and introduce our tools and measurement results.
