Verisign Announces Participation in World IPv6 Day

VeriSign, Inc. today announced the company will participate in the Internet Society's World IPv6 Day, a 24-hour global "test drive" of IPv6 on June 8, 2011.

Joining the likes of Cisco, Google, Yahoo, and other industry leaders, Verisign will enable global IPv6 connectivity to its corporate website, www.verisigninc.com, on June 8 and thereafter, so that anyone with IPv6 Internet capabilities will be able to access the site. IPv4 traffic access to the site will be unchanged.

"Verisign is committed to ensuring that the critical Internet infrastructure under our stewardship is fully prepared for rapid, wide-scale IPv6 adoption," said Danny McPherson, CSO of Verisign. "To this end, we are very pleased to join the many Web companies, Internet Service Providers and enterprises participating in World IPv6 Day to help ensure a successful transition from IPv4 to IPv6. Working together, we can make 2011 an historic year for ensuring the stability, security and growth of the Internet."

Verisign has been capable of servicing IPv6 queries at the network layer, and supporting IPv6 extensions in the Domain Name System (DNS) itself, for several years. The company is committed to continually expanding its infrastructure to accommodate new capabilities and exceed global demand, including all aspects of full feature and capability parity with IPv4, and an expected co-existence with IPv4 and IPv6 into the foreseeable future.

"We are eager to learn from the knowledge yet to be realized with broader IPv6 adoption, and will continue to share our own experiences with other infrastructure operators and Internet stakeholders as they ready their networks for IPv6," said McPherson.
