Full Summary: The Internet Governance Project brings Alain Durand, principal technologist at ICANN, to Atlanta to discuss IPv6. Could IPv6 create a new digital divide? Durand explains why this new and improved protocol is essential for growth of the Internet but also presents a new compatibility problem. Hosted by ATDC in Tech Square as part of Entrepreneurs' Night, featuring networking with Georgia’s technology startup entrepreneurs, Georgia Tech faculty, and students.

Entrepreneurs' Night at ATDC, featuring Alain Durand of ICANN

Presented by the Institute for Information Security & Privacy

and the Internet Governance Project at Georgia Tech

Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) is supposed to be the future of the Internet. It is a new and improved protocol that greatly expands the current internet’s address space, but IPv6 is not compatible with the legacy Internet protocol (IPv4). This means that network operators who upgrade have to run both the new and the old protocols to remain connected to the whole Internet. This compatibility problem has created barriers to the migration to the new protocol. Yet migrate we must, as IPv4 does not have enough address space to sustain the growth of the Internet. Alain Durand, principal technologist of ICANN, analyzes the state of IPv6 deployment around the world, and asks, are we creating two distinct internets – and does this create a “digital divide” between the old and the new protocols?

Entrepreneurs’ Night is an integral part of the ATDC experience. Join us for some of the best networking for Georgia’s technology startup entrepreneurs, complete with free food and drinks. Entrepreneurs’ Night takes place the third Thursday of every month from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
