(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Ensuring the future of an open, robust Internet for decades to come, Comodo (http://www.comodo.com), a leading certificate authority and Internet security organization, today announced that it will participate in World IPv6 Day on June 8 to test websites and technologies for compliance with the long-awaited, next-generation Internet protocol.
The Internet Society (ISOC), a nonprofit organization founded in 1992 to provide leadership in Internet related standards, education, and policy, is coordinating the 24-hour test of IPv6 for entities around the world. One of the goals of World IPv6 Day is to expose potential issues with websites deploying IPv6 under controlled conditions.
“Together with major Web companies, we will enable IPv6 on our main website for 24 hours. This is a crucial phase in the transition, because while IPv6 is widely deployed in many networks, it’s never been used at such a large scale before,” said Comodo CEO, Melih Abdulhayoglu. “We hope that by working together, we can help the industry prepare for the new protocol, find and resolve any unexpected issues, and pave the way for global deployment.”
