Original release date: September 23, 2021<br/><p>The federal government has prioritized the transition of federal networks to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) since the release of <a href="https://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/omb/memoranda/fy2005/m05-22.pdf">Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum 05-22</a>&nbsp;in 2005. In 2020, OMB renewed its focus on IPv6 through the publication of <a href="https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/M-21-07.pdf">OMB Memorandum 21-07</a>. That memorandum specifically entrusts CISA with enhancing the Trusted Internet Connections (TIC) program to fully support the implementation of IPv6 in federal IT systems.&nbsp;</p>

<p>In accordance with this OMB mandate, CISA has issued <a href="https://www.cisa.gov/publication/ipv6-considerations-tic-30">IPv6 Considerations for TIC 3.0</a> to provide federal agencies with guidance to help them use IPv6 to secure their networks by:</p>

<ul>
<li>Providing IPv6 protocol information to enable a general understanding,</li>
<li>Informing agencies of their responsibilities concerning OMB M-21-07,</li>
<li>Aligning TIC 3.0 security objectives and security capabilities with IPv6, and</li>
<li>Offering awareness and guidance regarding IPv6 security considerations.</li>
</ul>

<p>CISA encourages IT decision-makers and administrators in all federal government agencies and organizations to review <a href="https://www.cisa.gov/publication/ipv6-considerations-tic-30">IPv6 Considerations for TIC 3.0</a> to facilitate advancing IPv6 networks and ensuring future growth and innovation in internet services and technology.</p>
