IPv6 Technical Verification Consortium

As the industry moves toward the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses and future advancement of IPv6 utilization, it is desirable to establish measures to discover the new potential threats accompanying IPv6 through studies and research into the kinds of risks involved in IPv6 network environments. This includes planning of technical countermeasures that consider mixed usage of IPv4 and IPv6 as well as the move to IPv6, while also leveraging the insight into security/safety technologies, which were developed under IPv4. Against this background, ten founding members, including companies and organizations in the telecommunication, networking, security, hardware and software fields, established the IPv6 Technical Verification Consortium. The Consortium promotes technical verification focusing on the security area in particular, aiming to achieve secure and stable IT environments where IPv6 is used.

ISTPA – (International Security Trust & Privacy Alliance)

ISTPA is a global alliance of companies and technology providers working together to clarify and resolve existing and evolving issues related to security, trust and privacy.
