==Logo suggestion==I'm wonderring if this would be a good "logo" to replace the "Set $wgLogo to the URL path to your own logo image" on the top left. I have a suggestion that we could have a mozilla logo (if that''The Internet s approved, that is) in the background (faded) and have the words Mozilla@Seneca on top of Things'''the mozilla logo! What do you guys think??
The internet of things is a scenario which objects or devices connect each other without any human interaction. This scenario was issued in 1991 by implementing internet. In 20th century by developing nanotechnology and computer science- 12:29 Monday, experts start focusing more about internet of things. Many famous companies in IT change their business plane to develop their research in internet of things. They also have huge progress in it. By using internet of things scenario IT companies have main effect in developing in other industries like the medical and healthcare systems, energy management, building and home automation.18 Sept 2006 (EST)    [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
Many famous IT companies like Microsoft, CISCO and IBM. They create many solutions based on Internet of thing, For illustration, Microsoft Company engineers believe that Internet of Things is flexible and it helps converged between devices, it also consider: reducing hardware costs, more machine are talking to each other, Software is more advanced than ever, The economic benefits are huge.
Although experts in IT solve many problems by using internet of things scenario, but there It might be nice to have something that is a serious problem, how we can manage this huge networkMozilla or OSS related. By using IPv4 topology scientists found out they will face Off the lack top of IP amount problem. Therefore they create new version of IP topology which is IPv6 topology. By using IPv6 topology we can administer it reliably, efficiently and securelymy head I'm not sure what that would be though.
==Mozilla/OSS related logo==Yeah, that'''Definition of IPv6'''s what I thought so too.
IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) is the latest level of the Internet Protocol (IP) and is now included as part of IP support in many products including the major computer operating systems. IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is a set of specifications from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that's essentially an upgrade of IP version 4 (IPv4). The basics of IPv6 are similar to those of IPv4 -- devices can use IPv6 as source and destination addresses to pass packets over a network, and tools like ping work for network testing as they do in IPv4, with some slight variations. The most obvious improvement in IPv6 over IPv4 is that IP addresses are lengthened from 32 bits to 128 bits. This extension anticipates considerable future growth of the Internet and provides relief for what was perceived as an impending shortage of network addresses. IPv6 also supports auto-configuration to help correct most of the shortcomings in version 4, and it has integrated security and mobility features.Logo idea:
Mozilla logo (that is if that'''IPv6 features include:'''s approved) in the background (faded) and have the words Mozilla@Seneca floating on top of the mozilla logo
Supports source and destination addresses that are 128 bits - 12:37 Monday, 18 Sept 2006 (16 bytesEST)    [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak) long.
Requires IPSec support.
Uses Flow Label field I think that something with moz and seneca together would be most appropriate. It's great to identify packet flow for QoS handling by routerhave people active in this :).
Allows the host to send fragments packets but not routers.- 13:34 Monday, 18 Sept 2006 (EST)    [[User:Themystic|Tom Aratyn]] (mystic)
Doesn't include a check sum in the header.
Uses a link-local scope all-nodes multicast address.Who should we be asking for permission to use the Mozilla logo??
Does not require manual configuration or DHCP.- 14:38 Monday, 18 Sept 2006 (EST)    [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
Uses host address - 2:41 Monday, 18 Sept 2006 (AAAAEST) resource records in DNS [[User:David.humphrey|dave]] -- you have to map host names be careful with that. Paul Kim is the one to IPv6 addressesask about it (
Uses pointer (PTR) resource records in the IP6.ARPA DNS domain to map IPv6 addresses to host names.

Moves optional data to IPv6 extension headers.
Uses Multicast Neighbor Solicitation messages I was thinking maybe we could come up with a logo using Seneca Sting "bee" and the Mozilla "Firefox". Assuming we get the respective permissions to resolve IP addresses to linkuse both logos.-layer addresses.15:21 Monday, 18 Sept 2006 (EST)    [[User:Sherman|Sherman Fernandes]] (sjfern)
Uses Multicast Listener Discovery Sherman, that is an idea. However, the Seneca Sting "bee" represents the Seneca Recreation Council. I don't know how relevant that logo would be for our case, but we could probably try to incorporate that with the mozilla logo (MLDif we get permissions) messages to manage membership in local subnet groups.It's too bad Seneca doesn't have a REAL logo.- 15:28 Monday, 18 Sept 2006 (EST)    [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
Uses ICMPv6 Router Solicitation and Router Advertisement messages to determine the IP address of the best default gateway.
I'''History of IPv6'''m writing an email to request for permission to use the mozilla logo. - 09:30 Tuesday, 19 Sept 2006 (EST)    [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
The transition from Internet Protocol v4 to v6 is the biggest infrastructure shift in the Internet since the network was founded. Proposed in 1995 and adopted as a workable protocol in 1999, Internet Protocol version 6 was designed to support the Internet’s rampant growth. It promised to boost the number of Internet addresses from 4.3 billion to (3.4x1038) about 670 quadrillion addresses per square millimetre of the Earth's surface! IPv6 also offers a tighter security through packet-level encryption and stepped-up authentication, along with the ability for routers to better manage traffic flow through such features as packet labeling. The header format would be improved, enabling traffic management features such as "fast lanes," or fatter channels for bigger content.
Liz, perhaps you should make a REAL logo for Seneca too. Wasn't there a contest for this sometime back? (or perhaps for the rec logo?)[[User:Mdsouza|Mark D''Benefits /comparison between IPv6 and IPv4'''Souza]] (mdsouza)
Feature=Good News: Permission granted for the usage of Mozilla logo=This is the email I received from Paul Kim (10:28 Sept 19 06 EST):

Easier management Feel free to submit some of networksyour design for the logo!
IPv6 networks provide auto configuration capabilities. They are simpler- 10:49 Tuesday, flatter and more manageable, especially for large installations.19 Sept 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
Networks must be configured manually or with DHCP. IPv4 has had many overlays to handle Internet growth, which demand increasing maintenance efforts.=A logo Concept - A Photoshop Wizard I Am Not=Here's something I whipped up - you get the idea:
End-to-end connective integrity[[Image:mozillaAtSeneca3.jpg|thumb\Mozilla At S@Y]]
Direct addressing is possible due to vast address space - the need for network address translation devices is effectively eliminated.3:23 Wednesday, 20 Sept 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Dmmanley|Dave Manley]] (seneManley)
Widespread use of NAT devices means that a single NAT address can mask thousands of non-routable addresses, making end-to-end integrity unachievable.
Unconstrained address abundanceThat is so cool! It's hilarious! I like this! Let's hear from the other folks!
3.4 x 1038 = 340 trillion trillion addresses - about 670 quadrillion addresses per square millimetre of the Earth's surface.15:44 Wednesday, 20 Sept 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Elichak|Elizabeth Chak]] (elichak)
4.29 x 109 = 4.2 billion addresses - far less than even a single IP address per person on the planetYup, this is pretty nice and funny.I say we use it!
Platform for innovation and collaboration-19:00 Thursday, 20 Sept 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Mdsouza|Mark D'Souza]] (mdsouza)
Given the numbers of addresses, scalability and flexibility of IPv6, its potential for triggering innovation and assisting collaboration is unbounded.Awesome (dave)
IPv4 was designed as a transport and communications medium, and increasingly any work on IPv4 is to find ways around the constraints.== My GIMP masterpiece ==
Integrated interoperability and mobility[[Image:mozLogo.png]]
IPv6 provides interoperability and mobility capabilities which are already widely embedded in network devices.--[[User:Pcvitori|Pcvitori]] 10:14, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
Relatively constrained network topologies restrict mobility and interoperability capabilities in the IPv4 InternetNice.. im liking both of them. We need to setup a panel of judges!
Improved security features--[[User:Mylau|mylau]] 10:56, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
IPSEC is built into the IPv6 protocolWow, usable with a suitable key this logo
Security is dependent on applications - IPv4 was not designed with security in mind.
'''IPV6 Structure'''This is for you Phill [[Image:mozLogo2.png]]Transparent for current layout [[Image:mozLogo3.png]]Transparent blue for your layout
The IPv6 protocol component includes Internet Control Message Protocol version 6 (ICMPv6), Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD), and Neighbor DiscoveryWOW.. IPv6 has different protocolsDejan, so IPv6 is not able to communicate with IPv4. (Microsoft 2003)VERY NICE!!! I love the transparent one!!!
'''Feature of IPv6'''--[[User:Elichak|Liz Chak (elichak)]] 01:31, 29 September 2006 (EDT)
“Fixed length = 40 bytes = no HL field MoeZilla & Seneca == more efficient

StreamlinedNice, extensible (via extension header – coming up)but isnt that part of the rec. logo, not seneca? From what i remember, the seneca logo is just plain text with a red background.

'''The next header consists of three categories'''--[[User:IPv6 HeaderPcvitori|Pcvitori]] 09:45, 22 September 2006 (EDT)
Upper Layer Protocol== Adding a Favicon ==Just thought it would be cool to add a favicons for our wiki site that would display in the browser address bar when the page is visited and/or in the browser bookmarks menu.
Extension HeadersHere are three 32x32 samples created based on the new wiki logo:
IPv6 and extension Headers are two new features in IPv6[[Image:Favicon.PNG]] &nbsp;-&nbsp; Main wiki logo version.
'''IPv6 Addressing'''[[Image:Favicon2.PNG]] &nbsp;-&nbsp; Transparent blue without text.

21DA:00D3:0000:2F3B:02AA:00FF:FE28:9C5AFavicons may also have scrolling text and may even be animated. However, since the wiki only allows .PNG uploads I could not upload those samples.
IPv6 addressing can be more r simplified by removing the foremost zeroes.- 03:27 Thursday, 28 Sept 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Sherman|Sherman Fernandes]] (sjfern)
21DA:D3:0:2F3B:2AA:FF:FE28:9C5Sherman, this is such a great idea. However, the admins dont have access to zenit just yet (our wiki is moved to zenit) so we will only be able to set this up when we get the access.
In IPv6 there are three types of addresses- 20:38 Sunday, 01 Oct 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
UnicastI like #2. I don't think animation would be useful for something so small though.
Multicast- [[User:Bhearsum|bhearsum]] 20:59, 1 October 2006 (EDT)
Anycast is a new feature in IPv6. It classifies multiple interfaces and sends Would it be possible to fill up the packets to whole 32X32 pixels with a single and bigger version of the nearest of icon (don't worry about the several services in a group. Overalltext, we wouldn't be able to see it is a ccommunication that occurs between a single sender and the nearest of a group of receivers.anyways)-- 16:45 Monday 02 Oct 2006 (EST) &nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Elichak|Liz Chak]] (elichak)
I think that'''End-to-end IPv6 Packet Delivery Process'''s a good idea Liz. Maybe just scale it up and have the blue fade touch all the edges?[[User:Bhearsum|bhearsum]] 17:05, 2 October 2006 (EDT)

'''IPv6 Routing'''I found an extension for mediawiki that allows a user-customizable sidebar
IPv6 uses local routing table to forward packets on a networkhttp://austinche. Within the routing table, there is stored information about IPv6 network prefixname/mediawiki/UserSidebar.php.txt
The routing table is I'm finding myself clicking the same links over and over to get to my most commonly used to determine:pages. Would anyone else use this?
The next-hop address[[User: It is the destination address, it delivers packets directlyBhearsum|bhearsum]] 20:12, and the destination address is on a local link.4 October 2006 (EDT)
The next-hope interface: It is used i'd like that, as long as i don't have to spend more than 5 minutes figuring out how to identify the physical interface and use it forwards the packets to destination or to the next router.-andrew
Definition of IP (internet protocol) - The Internet Protocol (IP) is the principal communications protocol in the Internet protocol suite for relaying data grams across network boundaries== Move News ==
Definition I moved the news to a separate page. Some of IPV6 – it is the latest version of links are getting long in the Internet Protocol tooth (IPthough still important), and the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers CBC news anchor with her mouth half-open had been on networks and routes traffic across the Internetfront page for quite a while.
Definition of IPV4 – Moving the news to a separate page makes the Content area more prominent. However, it is also makes the fourth version in page look less interesting, so we should consider ways of improving the development visual appeal of the Internet Protocol (IP) Internet, and routes most traffic on the Internetfront page.

IPv6 supports globally unique IP addresses by which the network activity of each device can potentially be tracked.The design of IPv6 intended to re-emphasize the end-to-end principle of network design that was originally conceived during the establishment of the early Internet. In this approach each device on the network has a unique address globally reachable directly from any other location on the Internet== Added Logos ==
How secure is IPv6 ?I added the logos for the 5 projects/communities we work with to the bottom of the front page. '''Note that due to Trademark guidelines, we're required to hyperlink the Fedora logo to'''.
Is it secure enough to use in our daily lives? Yes it can be used and it is one of the most widely used networks. A widely assumed benefit of ipv6 is IPSEC support as ipv6 supports I0SEC for transport encryption which makes it secure. Another security feature is discovery of secure neighbour which makes it more and more secure.  Support in major o.s.  All major operating system have ipv6 .not only all os have ipv6 but their support is on default. This means that for most people ipv6 is possible to use with any operating system. Examples of OS which support ipv6 Microsoft windows since windows vista and server 2008 apple os x since 10.2 jaguar linux sice kernel 2.6.12 All in all ipv6 network is a reliable and efficient as ipv6 is supported by most of the operating system available in market, however there are some limitations in security, like it does not support IPsec (internet protocol security) properly, which is an important security feature .Basically it cannot prevent attacks on layers above the network layer in the network protocol stack.     References Creating the Internet of Your Things.
