A Buyers Guide to USGv6 is under development to help simplify understanding of IPv6 products for US Government consumption. Both buyers and sellers are urged to read it and offer feedback on how we can make this process clear, and so help close the gap between USGv6 and Acquisition. Follow the link on the left to reach the document. Feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org please.
Technical Infrastructure for USGv6 Adoption
OMB Memorandum M-05-22
In addition to the profiles, a testing program has beenestablished to enable products to be tested for compliance with the profile by accredited laboratories.
The profile is embodied as a set of recommendations of NIST, and the test program supports open and voluntary involvement. While neither contribution from NIST carries specific policy as developed, it is envisioned that these pieces can provide a technical infrastructure upon which other policies and plans can be based.
This page links to information on the USGv6 profile and Testing Program. It includes links to current and prior versions of the profile, and associated information.
