IPv6 More than a Protocol

The new version of the IP protocol, IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6), provides extended networking functionality – a much larger address space, restoration of end-to-end connectivity to facilitate peer-to-peer communication and end-to-end security, better auto-configuration tools, and several other protocol enhancements – that could make it a new networking paradigm. This special issue is devoted to presenting all these new possibilities from a critical point of view.

The UPgrade European NETwork section of this issue includes a paper from Novática and Pro-Dialog, both publications by Asociación de Técnicos de Informática (ATI) and the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI-PIPS) respectively. The topics covered in these papers are about IT teaching and the Information Society.
