 Apropos of my talk last night on IPv6,
 I read from Linux Weekly News (article at
http://www.gcn.com/online/vol1_no1/47656-1.html) [1] that the US
Department of Defence has officially certified the Linux
implementation of IPv6 as complying to all the requirements of IPv6. 
That means that the security extensions and various other non-core
parts of IPv6 are now correct in Linux; this is important for getting
any machine into DoD.  So maybe the talk of the protocol stacks being
only partially complete is a bit outdated!
 Hope this helps,
