Most U.S. Agencies Expected to Miss IPv6 Deadline

Most federal agencies are expected to miss the September 30 deadline that requires their public-facing websites to support IPv6. An official weekly snapshot provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology showed that as of September 26, just 11 percent of the 1,498 government external domains tested had operational IPv6 support, Federal Computer reports. “Another 35 percent have the support in progress, but a full 54 percent showed no progress. (See the complete list of domains included in the testing here.)”
