IPv6 Certification

The good people over at Hurricane Electric have setup an IPv6 Certification Project. It allows you to certify your ability to configure IPv6, and to validate your IPv6 servers configuration.

Through the certification process set you will be able to:

  • Prove that you have IPv6 connectivity
  • Prove that you have a working IPv6 web server
  • Prove that you have a working IPv6 email address
  • Prove that you have working forward IPv6 DNS
  • Prove that you have working reverse IPv6 DNS for your mail server
  • Prove that you have name servers with IPv6 addresses that can respond to queries via IPv6
  • Prove your knowledge of IPv6 techonologies through quick and easy testing

You will also demonstrate that you are familiar with IPv6 concepts such as:

  • the format of IPv6 addresses
  • AAAA records
  • reverse DNS for IPv6
  • the IPv6 localhost address
  • the IPv6 default route
  • the IPv6 documentation prefix
  • the IPv6 link local prefix
  • the IPv6 multicast prefix
  • how to do an IPv6 ping
  • how to do an IPv6 traceroute
  • common IPv6 prefix lengths such as /64, /48, /32
  • and more!

This certification service is both entertaining and educational. It also helps you commit to using IPv6 for a long period of time, as it requires the output of 100 different traceroute6/ping6/aaaa/prt/whois commands, performed at least 24-hours apart.

Plus, you get a clickable IPv6 Certification badge to post in your blog and a kewl t-shirt (at 1500 points) :-)
