Jim Bound

Jim has left us in peace with dignity and honor, with courage and grandeur, with laughter and great spirit until his last minute standing tall, the way we know him and the way we appreciate him.

We lost our dearest friend.
We lost our leading light.
We lost our great adviser.
We lost our pillar.

We will miss his laughter.
We will miss his genius.
We will miss his generosity.
We will miss his anger.
We will miss his passion and impatience.
We will miss his intransigence.
We will miss his love for disfavored people.
We will miss his hate for dishonorable people.
We will miss his wonderful speeches.
We will miss having a simple diner with him.

We are sad to not have told him good bye on his last day.

We are sad and pray god for his soul to rest in peace.

God Bless Jim!

    http://www.isoc.org/awards/itojun/

    About the Award

    The Itojun Service Award was launched in 2008 to provide recognition and support for those progressing IPv6 development on the Internet.



    The Itojun Service Award honours the memory of Dr. Jun-ichiro "Itojun" Hagino, who passed away in 2007, aged just 37. The award, established by the friends of Itojun and administered by the Internet Society (ISOC), recognises and commemorates the extraordinary dedication exercised by Itojun over the course of IPv6 development.

    Itojun worked as a Senior Researcher at the Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ), was a member of the board of the Widely Integrated Distributed Environment (WIDE) project, and from 1998 to 2007 served on the groundbreaking KAME project in Japan as the "IPv6 samurai". He was also a member of the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) from 2003 to 2005.

    At the time of his passing, Russ Housley, IETF Chair, and Olaf Kolkman, IAB Chair, issued a joint statement, praising Itojun's service to IPv6 developments, saying that he had "inspired many and will be missed."

    The Itojun Service Award will run for 10 years, presented annually to an individual who has made outstanding contributions in service to the IPv6 community. The award includes a presentation crystal, a US$3,000 honorarium, and a travel grant. The Award will honor an individual who has provided sustained and substantial technical contributions, service to the community, and leadership. With respect to leadership, the selection committee will place particular emphasis on candidates who have supported and enabled others in addition to their own specific actions.

Advanced Incident Response System
Advanced Incident Response System

The Advanced Incident Response System (AIRS) is an IPv6-enabled solution that would allow incident response personnel from various local, municipal, and government agencies to communicate seamlessly during an event while minimizing dependencies on the fixed infrastructure of the disaster site. Leveraging next generation technologies like IPv6, network mobility, mobile ad hoc networking, and advanced sensor systems, the AIRS solution would enable responders to communicate securely with each other and with their commanders in real time.

Conferencing
Conferencing

IPv4 makes conferencing problematic in a large amount of network setups due to IPv4 NATs being around. With IPv6 this is not a problem due to the amount of address space and every host getting it's own globally unique address. Devices can communicate in an End-2-End fashion, thus avoiding the need for NAT trickery. This makes setup easier and improves quality of communications.

ARIN Board Advises Internet Community on Migration to IPv6
Posted: Mon, 21 May 2007

ARIN and the other Regional Internet Registries have distributed Internet Protocol version 6, IPv6, alongside IPv4 since 1999. To date, ARIN has issued both protocol versions in tandem and has not advocated one over the other. ARIN has closely monitored trends in demand and distribution for both protocol versions with the understanding that the IPv4 available resource pool would continue to diminish.

The available IPv4 resource pool has now been reduced to the point that ARIN is compelled to advise the Internet community that migration to IPv6 is necessary for any applications that require ongoing availability from ARIN of contiguous IP number resources.

On 7 May 2007, the ARIN Board of Trustees passed the following resolution:

RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF ARIN ON INTERNET PROTOCOL NUMBERING RESOURCE AVAILABILITY

WHEREAS, community access to Internet Protocol (IP) numbering Resources has proved essential to the successful growth of the Internet; and,

WHEREAS, ongoing community access to Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) numbering resources can not be assured indefinitely; and,

WHEREAS, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) numbering resources are available and suitable for many Internet applications,

BE IT RESOLVED, that this Board of Trustees hereby advises the Internet community that migration to IPv6 numbering resources is necessary for any applications which require ongoing availability from ARIN of contiguous IP numbering resources; and,

BE IT ORDERED, that this Board of Trustees hereby directs ARIN staff to take any and all measures necessary to assure veracity of applications to ARIN for IPv4 numbering resources; and,

BE IT RESOLVED, that this Board of Trustees hereby requests the ARIN Advisory Council to consider Internet Numbering Resource Policy changes advisable to encourage migration to IPv6 numbering resources where possible.

Implementation of this resolution will include both internal and external components. Internally, ARIN will review its resource request procedures and continue to provide policy experience reports to the Advisory Council. Externally, ARIN will send progress announcements to the ARIN community as well as the wider technical audience, government agencies, and media outlets. ARIN will produce new documentation, from basic introductory fact sheets to FAQs on how this resolution will affect users in the region. ARIN will focus on IPv6 in many of its general outreach activities, such as speaking engagements, trade shows, and technical community meetings.

IPv6 Ready Logo Program
As one of its promotional activities, the IPv6 Forum ogranises the worldwide IPv6 Ready Logo Program, which is just beginning its Phase 2 activities and testing. The coordination of the Program is chaired by Hiroshi Esaki. Visit the Program web site to see how your product can earn the Logo. Contrary to IPv4, which started with a small closed group of implementers, the universality of IPv6 leads to a huge number of implementations. Interoperability has always been considered as a critical feature in the Internet community. Due to the large number of IPv6 implementations, it is important to provide the market a strong signal proving the level of interoperability across various products.

An IPv6 Task Force SC Initiative

  • What are the challenges IPv6 is facing today in the market?
    1. Routing reachability of IPv6 transport.
    We observed some networks, that does have Ipv6 transport but does not have global connectivity by IPv6. Since the IPv6 address can be resolved by the IPv4 transport DNS query, once the IPv6 network does not have IPv6 global connectivity actual IP connection cannot established.
    2. Operational experiences
    Many network operators and system designers do not have any practical IPv6 networking.



  • Does IPv6 need a killer application to achieve accelerated deployment?
    1. Basically, VISTA by Microsoft would provide a big impact on the deployment of IPv6 network.
    2. There are huge poential market segments, that have not used IP technology. The people in these market does not care IP version, since it would be the first indtroduction of IP in their system. Facility networking, building automation, sensor networking would be some good exampled market segments.



  • Do you have any opinion on when we'll see IPv6 uptake globally?
    The end of 2007 would be the first time-frame, i.e., after the release of VISTA by Microsoft. The next time-frame would be 2010, when boradcast system will going to be digitaized.



  • When do you expect IPv4 addresses to become exhausted?, can you foresee other solution than IPv6 for a global Internet?
    Most of ISPs have already they must go to IPv6. They realize that it is avoidable, anymore. With other reason would be dueot the price and cost of IPv4 address maintenance. Already, in Japan, some large scale networking go with IPv6, since the cost of IPv4 is too expensive. Of course, they have realized the benefit of using the global IP address, as a long run. They know the cost of trouble shooting, the importance of end-to-end authentication or the cost of system merging with NAT.



  • What are in your opinion the biggest flaws of IPv6? Can they be tackled?
    At this time, the cost of network modification to enable their network IPv6 capabile. Engineers and operators of the equipment manufacturing and system operation.



  • What real benefits can IPv6 bring to end-users?
    1. By the introduction of IP technology into the system, that has not used IP technology, can be open system, leading to cost down for the end-users.
    2. Easy and less cost for the use of global IP address.
    3. Accellaration of contenct distribution and circulation.



  • Do you think security will be better with IPv6 than currently with IPv4, or is this a completely independent issue?
    Security itself is the same among IPv4 and IPv6, since the security is not only related with IP layer/module, but also for the other functions/modules/layers. However, when we look the IP layer/module, using the global IP address significantly improve the security. As we observed, recent deployment of IPSec for VPN service is amazing, even for us, This is because lower layer security is always easier and better than at the high layer.
    Also, the identification of end-station, that has the security problem, is recognized very important and very effective for robust operation, as well as faster toubleshooting.



  • Does IPv6 offer better privacy?
    It should be the same for IPv6 and IPv4. There is a opinion that allocating global IP(v6) address allow the individual tracing by some bad end-user. However, it 'is" actually very hard to do. Also, already, ISP will use DHCP for many users, who need global IP address but do not permanent global IP address. As for the users, who need permanent IP address, the issue on privacy theexactly the same for IPv4 and IPv6.
    We have many Randezvous system to meet the end-stations with global IP address, that are not permantly allocated to the end-stations.
    We must distinguish "permanent" global address and "non-permanent" global address.



  • Will applications become easier to deploy?
    Since a lot of installation base and engineers developping the application is familer with IPv4, development and deployment of IPv6 is not easy. However, when we can introduce them NAT free network, the development and deployment of the application should be eaiser than for the network, that must consider the existance of NAT. Yes, the programing branch and case can be reduced by the introductionof NAT-free network environment.



  • Do you see any major differences in training engineers for IPv6+IPv4?
    Routing design requires larger consideration. However, this should be the same level as the designing VPN with private IP addresses.



Political & Business Issues:

  • What are the drivers for IPv6?
    1. The reduce of total RoI (Return of Investiment).
    2. New business segments, that introduce IP technology.
    3. NGN and FMC.
    4. Contents delivery service, e.g., digital TV broadcasting



  • Is there a business case for IPv6?
    1. IP-phone system in nation-wide dormitries (20,000 handsets and 280 sites, in 18 month)
    2. IP-phone and Streaming service in NTT West, as Flets Premium
    3. FamilyMark store, nation-wide convenience store, networking. (7,000 stores in one year deployment)
    4. IPv6 based backbone building management and controlling systems (more than ten buidings)
    5. Tokyo metropolitan office facility and buiding management system



  • Does IPv6 have to demonstrate an ROI?
    Yes. Already, the above example are considering the ROI, and their consideration result was positive, i.e., impovement of ROI, as a long run.



  • Can IPv6 be a turning point regarding the global Internet?
    Probably yes. A lot of things are coincidate with the introduction of IPv6. Integration with real-space, digital contents distribution, sensor networking.



  • Why is Europe and the US lagging behind? And Is Asia really ahead of them?
    I do not think Asia is ahead of Europe and North America. Espacially, many network equipment vendors in North America has already let their products IPv6 ready. Only one reason might be the maintanence cost of global IPv4 address. Relatively, in Asia, the price and cost of IPv4 global address would be higher than in Europe or in North America.



  • Can China take leadership and become the center of new Internet solutions?
    Maybe or maybe not. However, China will be larege share holder as for number of users and as for the number products shipping to the global space.



  • What's the societal impact?
    Accellaration of peer-to-peer application. This leads the effective individual communication. Opinion of individuals and contents produced by individuals can be effectively and easily shared. Also, the increase of contents sharing and circulation would change the industrial structure of mass-communication industry. Already, the video and music distribution business has been in the process of changing the structure.



  • Can IPv6 empower the citizen?
    Yes. With less cost, the digital devices can be connected to each other.



  • What do you think about the current worldwide public addressing distribution process?
    As is should be fine. This means that allocating the addresses based on the actual request of usage is healthy. Only bad side would be that the address space is devided in reagins (Asia, Africa, North America, Europe, South Africa). The activity of people and enterprise is already global.



  • Can the IPv4 address shortage be used as a monopoly resource to control the Internet? Would there be a black market for IPv6?
    No, I do not think so. When we have good IPv6 global network. IPv4 will be gradually disappear. It will be the matter of cost.



  • Can Europe, and the World - one day - bear with the fact that the public Internet can't grow anymore because the addresses ran out? Can business live and thrive without that growth?
    Business continuation is ctritical for everubody. Therefore, when we can not have develop global IPv6 network, before running out of IPv4 address, the networking will be very costly, and it will give very bad effection on the economy.



  • What's the business impact of not doing IPv6?
    As answered above. Business continuation cost.



  • Can government play a role in driving IPv6 deployment?
    Not so much, actually. But, they could show the proof of technology by the actual operation of IPv6 network.



  • How would you qualify the support awarded by your government to IPv6 deployment?
    Japanese government should have actual demonstration on thier operational network. This should be a big impact in the industry, as the demonstration proofing the maturality of IPv6 technology.

An IPv6 Task Force SC Initiative

Technical questions:

  • What are the challenges IPv6 is facing today in the market?
    Patience. IPv6 is gradually being deployed now in Provider (e.g. NSPs, Governments, some Enterprises) backbone core networks and on the edge. >From there that will permit a vantage point to provide two important deployment scenarios. First the provisioning of Web Services using IPv6 and eventually 3G IMS, and second a network path to permit the use of end-to-end peer-to-peer applications to be developed. The original chicken and egg issue is gone from my view, all know the advantages of IPv6, the question is now how do they get there operationally and where do the additional budget requirements come from or is it all going to be done with technology refresh. The market can see the benefits of the restoration of end-to-end now, but are not clear how to get there, and the business and technology problem is greater than just the IPv6 layer 3 protocol. Thus the IPv6 Forum now needs to become more involved with NGN, Net Centricity, and other networking points of light not just IPv6, to make sure IPv6 is deployed sooner than later.



  • Does IPv6 need a killer application to achieve accelerated deployment?
    Absolutely not. I view it this way now and that is the focus should be on the application of IPv6, not IPv6 applications, and stressing the business advantages as we identified in the IPv6 Forum 2006 World Congress Report.



  • Do you have any opinion on when we'll see IPv6 uptake globally?
    No. I think each region will need to get their house in order for production deployment. Regarding academic and research deployment that is global today and will extend over time. But, academic and research deployment do not help the production deployment of IPv6 other than a test bed to locate bugs in the IPv6 deployment scenarios and an important aspect to IPv6 deployment evolution.



  • When do you expect IPv4 addresses to become exhausted?, can you foresee
    other solution than IPv6 for a global Internet?

    Based on the recent IPv6 Forum Tony Hain studies I believe between 2010 and 2012 the crisis will truly happen. But, it could happen sooner if vendors or enterprises want to deploy 200 million IPv6 devices then the chess game is in check mate and we have a real issue as economic growth has just been
    stifled on planet earth. Not good for any business entities or the earth inhabitants.



  • What are in your opinion the biggest flaws of IPv6? Can they be tackled?
    I am not going to discuss warts in an email message I can think of not one technology in the world I cannot find flaws with today. I see no major show stoppers for IPv6 today. Down the road after IPv6 is deployed widely as IPv4 we will need to re-think the IP multihoming problem we live with today with
    IPv4. One other pressing issue for IP in general I do want to note is PKI for IPsec this is still not resolved in the market place and key to wide deployment of end-to-end.



  • What real benefits can IPv6 bring to end-users?
    Please post all the URLs to the numerous IPv6 Advantages presented for the past 5 years and our recent IPv6 Forum World Congress Report. The key ones I list always are as follows: Restoration of the end-to-end Internet model, larger number of addresses, new Node Discovery Architecture, Stateless Autoconfiguration, and the enhancements to Mobile IPv6 routing. All of these advantages and new features for the Internet breed additional sub-Advantages as a set of dominos.



  • Do you think security will be better with IPv6 than currently with IPv4,
    or is this a completely independent issue?

    Completely independent issue except the restoration of end-to-end will permit the use of end-to-end network security, which I believe to be a superior security model than today.



  • Does IPv6 offer better privacy?
    No.



  • Will applications become easier to deploy?
    No. Other than again the restoration of end-to-end permits the market to begin development of new peer-to-peer applications.



  • Do you see any major differences in training engineers for IPv6+IPv4?
    Not really. Any technology emerging requires training and costly.



Political & Business Issues:

  • Is there a business case for IPv6?
    Sure see the IPv6 Forum World Congress Report.



  • Does IPv6 have to demonstrate an ROI?
    No. That is standard operating procedure for any business entity. Again
    see the IPv6 Forum World Congress Report.



  • Can IPv6 be a turning point regarding the global Internet?
    Sure. Restoration of end-to-end.



  • Why is Europe and the US lagging behind? And Is Asia really ahead of them?
    They are not this is pure myth. Asia has invested more in academia and research there is no more production of IPv6 in Asia than other geographies at this time or ROI.



  • Can China take leadership and become the center of new Internet solutions?
    Absurd question does not even deserve a response. This is silly.



  • What's the societal impact?
    None.



  • Can IPv6 empower the citizen?
    No. But end-to-end can give them better opportunity to communicate on the global Internet with a device.




  • Can the IPv4 address shortage be used as a monopoly resource to control
    the Internet? Would there be a black market for IPv6?

    I think the U.N. and ICANN have this under control and trust their judgment for now.



  • Can Europe, and the World - one day - bear with the fact that the public
    Internet can't grow anymore because the addresses ran out? Can business live
    and thrive without that growth?

    I don't think so and if that happens there will be no choice but for large global monopolies to be formed and I don't believe that is a good economic strategy.



  • What's the business impact of not doing IPv6?
    See your question above this question for the answer.



  • Can government play a role in driving IPv6 deployment?
    Sure. Governments have for centuries assisted the evolution of technology see the history of Davinci, Einstein, or Goddard.



  • How would you qualify the support awarded by your government to IPv6
    deployment?

    From the U.S. par Excellent. And I believe the same as CTO IPv6 Forum
    working with Governments internationally.
