Public Administrations and the transition between both IPv4 and IPV6

The public authorities, are at the same time agents promoters of the process of transition and actors in the same. On one hand, have to establish the conditions for engagement in what we need to be a collective endeavour, through cooperation with industry and telecommunications operators and carrying out dissemination and awareness among Internet users. In addition, the same Public Administrations need an extension of the scarce resource that are. environmental Sensors, Armed Forces, highly tecnificadas Administration in real time, … are requirements of the near future to the application of ict within the administrative activity. This should be added the role of public administrations as suppliers of services to society through The Internet.

Por la naturaleza global de Internet, dicho proceso no puede abordarse exclusivamente desde la óptica nacional, sino que ha de realizarse desde la coordinación con organismos internacionales. Un punto de partida en el esfuerzo coordinado de los Estados por desarrollar políticas homogéneas en este ámbito es la Declaración Ministerial de la OECD sobre el Futuro de la Economía de Internet (Seúl, 2008). At the same member states undertake to promote the adoption of IPv6 both by governments and by large consumers of IPv4 addresses (Opens in new window) . Como directrices para el desarrollo de políticas públicas en este sentido, la OECD recommends (Opens in new window) :

  • Working with the private sector and other stakeholders to increase the education and awareness and reduce bottlenecks
  • Demonstrate the government's commitment to the adoption of IPv6
  • Seek international cooperation and monitoring of implementation of IPv6.

Most recent milestones in international cooperation in the transition between both IPv4 and IPv6 from ITU-T and the european union. In both cases, it is beginning to make way a more proactive role of public administrations in the process of migration, incitándolas to lead by example. The resolution ITU-T 180 adopted at the conference held in Guadalajara in october 2010 (Opens in new window) , incitaba a los Estados miembros de la organización a actualizar sus sistemas y servicios más relevantes dentro del ámbito del servicio público para garantizar la compatibilidad con IPv6 . Por otro lado, la Comisión Europea, tanto dentro de la “Agenda Digital para Europa” como del “ The Plan of action of E-government 2011-2015 for europe (Opens in new window) ”, incites to support the process of migration through the interoperability of services of E-government with IPv6.

Los acuerdos internacionales sobre el camino a seguir en la transición de IPv4 a IPv6, junto con la cada vez más urgente necesidad de comenzarla de modo efectivo por el próximo agotamiento del espacio de direccionamiento IPv4, está dando lugar a una nueva generación de planes de migración nacionales, fijando de un modo más exigente fechas limite para el proceso. Ejemplo de ello es el Memoradum dictado en el Gobierno Federal de Estados Unidos “ Transition to IPv6 (Opens in new window) the most common actions in those programmes

In this regard of the last point, it is important to point out that this does not necessarily imply a full equipment of domestic public administrations. The use of mechanisms of interoperability described in RFC 4213 can be prevented in some cases the cost of migration be functionally complete and satisfactory.

In the case of spanish public administrations, in the process of migration will be essential to examine the impact of transition to IPv6 “ communications network Spanish public administrations ”, as defined in article 43 of law 11/2007. The evolution of the network as a key element of interoperability among the Spanish Public Administrations, will be the modification of the instruments that support interoperability and which are defined in the royal decree 4/2010 (“ Plan addressing the administration ” set out in article 14 and Rule of “ Technical Interoperability connection Requirements communications network spanish public administrations ” set out in its First Additional Provision).

These and other aspects are considered in the agreement of the council of ministers of 29 april 2011, which approves the Capacity-building Plan for mainstreaming IPv6 in spain (Opens in new window) .
