    Hi All,

    CISA just published CISA INTERNET PROTOCOL VERSION 6 CONSIDERATIONS FOR TRUSTED INTERNET CONNECTIONS 3.0

    This guidance reflects the authorities administered to the TIC program, outlined in OMB M-21-07, to enhance relevant security and resilience programs and services to fully
    support the deployment of IPv6 across federal IT systems. The purpose of this document is to guide federal civilian agencies in supporting IPv6 by:

    • Providing IPv6 protocol information to enable a general understanding,
    • Informing agencies of their responsibilities concerning OMB M-21-07,
    • Aligning TIC 3.0 security objectives and security capabilities to securely support IPv6, and
    • Offering awareness and guidance regarding IPv6 security considerations.

    This document is intended to be architecture-agnostic and broadly support the government-wide deployment and use of the IPv6 network protocol. It is not intended to be prescriptive but rather facilitate decision-making in determining the appropriate level of security in IPv6 environments.

    This document will explain the background of IPv6, list security considerations for the protocol, and provide awareness of IPv6 security features according to TIC guidance. This serves to facilitate conversations surrounding the protocol; additional guidance may be released according to agency needs.
