Book List
« on: July 09, 2008, 12:51:26 PM »

I wanted to provide a list of books, that we use and recommend for both staff and customers for reference and becoming more familiar with IPv6 in general. If you have any reviews of these books specifically or want to recommend other titles, please feel free to share!

O'Reilly's IPv6 Essentials By Silvia Hagen & IPv6 Network Administration By David Malone, Niall Murphy
Both of these books cover the very basics of IPv6, as well as branching out into much more detailed information regarding the protocol. I consider IPv6 Essentials mandatory reading, especially for a technical support role.

Apress' Running IPv6 by Iljitsch van Beijnum
Excellent guide for getting IPv6 up and running on a variety of platforms.

Microsoft's Understanding IPv6 by Joseph Davies
This book covers both a detailed introduction to IPv6, as well as getting it up and running as a client or server. It has information spanning XP/2003/Vista/2008 platforms, and the pros and cons of each.

Morgan Kaufman's Theory, Protocol, and Practice by Pete Loshin
A good resource that covers what is wrong with IPv4, how IPv6 can help, but also some of the problems facing IPv6.  It has a bunch of configuration examples for operating systems as well as Cisco appliances. There is a really decent section on real-world IPv6 security practices, as well as configuring Internet services that are a must like DNS, Email, etc.

Planning for IPv6 by Silvia Hagen
Another well written and composed book by Silvia that addresses testing, implementation and deployment of IPv6 into your lab and production networks.

Microsoft doesn't understand IPv6.  They don't even understand email!  Microsoft violates the Internet standards all the time.

snarked, I agree that Microsoft always puts their own spin on standards, but that particular book is packed with a lot of good, OS-agnostic technical detail.

You may want to mention the classic "TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1: The Protocols".

For myself, the answer's always in there.

There is also a book "IPv6" by Pavel Satrapa (available in both printed and electronic (pdf, epub, mobi) form).
Unfortunately, it is probably only in Czech language...

the following book is also good.  Another by the same author is for advanced usage.

Elsevier Science and Technology Books, Inc. 2007 (969 pages)
ISBN:9780124477513
Revealing all of the details of the KAME IPv6 protocol stack, this book dissects both the code and its design to illustrate how IPv6 and its related protocols have been interpreted and implemented from the specifications.
