Re: [ga] Overcoming IPv6 Security Threat
Now I could be wrong here as I have only been invited to an Apnic meeting
addressing such but it is my understanding that there is an actual campaign going
on to try and market IPv6. What I wondered is how they get to sell them. It seems
like a tourist climbing into the Grand Canyon and collecting rocks and then selling
them. Or maybe more like a tourist going into Yellowstone and collecting Poison
Ivy, and selling it to other tourists. Where is the title to these addresses, or
the license? Are we talking Brooklyn Bridge here?
