IPv6: The Next Generation Protocol is a complete overview of IPv6 and begins by covering such topics as header format, extensions, addressing, and routing. Once the overview of the protocol is explained, the book moves on to take a look at several implementations involving both the host and router.

The book also covers the overall addressing architecture that IPv6 has to offer, including management, format, and identifies its interfaces with link local addressing. The book then discusses more specific ideas regarding header compression and packet tunneling to provide a more practical representation of IPv6.
The last sections are more advanced, and discuss such topics as the transmission of IPv6 packets over IPv4 networks, security architecture, different protocols such as DHCPv6, and programming interfaces. The book concludes by discussing the transmission of IPv6 packets over Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, ARCnet, PPP, and NBMA networks to round out the versatility and functionality of IPv6 in a real world environment.

Review:

Read the entire review of this book.

Miller's IPv6: The Next Generation Internet Protocol is geared more toward practical and implementation issues. Unfortunately, because it is based solely on the 1995 documents, it does not reflect the significant changes that have since taken place. Although the new Internet drafts are not yet RFCs, they appear to be stable. Among the changes not reflected in Miller's book: the four-bit Priority field in the IPv6 header has been replaced with an eight-bit Class field with new semantics; the Router header has changed; and there have been substantial changes in the IP Security specification. Accordingly, a book based on the 1995 documents is of reduced value.

That said, there is much worthwhile information in Miller's book. IPv6: The Next Generation Internet Protocol looks at such issues as header compression, packet tunneling, and IPv4-IPv6 transition, providing practical, implementation-oriented advice. There is a detailed treatment of different addressing schemes, with a comparative analysis for various configurations. The book also covers the use of IPv6 over various network-level protocols and the issues that are raised. Another important area covered is that of routing, including routing in a mixed IPv4-IPv6 environment.
