CISA’s "IPv6 Considerations for TIC 3.0" supports federal agencies as they implement Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) network protocol, in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Memorandum (M) 21-07: "Completing the Transition to Internet Protocol Version 6." The "IPv6 Considerations for TIC 3.0" explains the background of IPv6, lists security considerations for the protocol in relation to the TIC 3.0 security capabilities, and provides awareness of IPv6 security features according to TIC guidance. This document is intended to be architecture-agnostic and broadly supports the government-wide deployment and use of the IPv6 network protocol.
