BlueCat Networks provides advice to the UK Government on IP Address Management (IPAM) and IPv6-Ready DNSSEC

BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence™ company, today announced that it has collaborated with the UK Cabinet Office on a best practice approach for deploying a resilient, IPv6-ready DNS service for the Public Sector Network (PSN). The PSN is a CIO Council initiative designed to create the effect of a single network across government.

"The security of business and network services accessible to users over the PSN is of paramount importance," said John Stubley, Public Sector Network — Program Director. "Over the past year, we have worked productively with BlueCat Networks to identify the technical issues to ensure our DNS core services are authoritative, resilient, scalable and easy to manage. BlueCat Networks has been extremely responsive in answering our requests and has provided expertise to the PSN Programme for this area of work."

"The PSN is a key component of the UK's ICT strategy, and will allow public sector users in the UK to more easily share information and access open standard-based services," said Matthew Pearson, UK and Ireland Sales Director, BlueCat Networks. "We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with the Cabinet Office and the PSN in a technical advisory role. BlueCat Networks contributed to the architecture and configuration for a centralised, authoritative DNSSEC and IP Address Management (IPAM) solution for .gov.uk domains. The approach had to be easy to manage, resilient, geographically-dispersed and scalable to support the network backbone for the whole of the United Kingdom. It also had to be future-ready with support for IPv6. Our recommendations were based on our experience in helping US government agencies successfully deploy DNSSEC and IPAM across their large, distributed networks."
