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) . As guidelines for the development of public policies in this regard, 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.

International agreements on the way forward in the transition to IPv6 IPv4, together with the increasingly urgent need for new round takes place effectively for the next depletion of the area of addressing IPv4, is giving rise to a new generation of national migration plans, establishing more demanding dates for the process. One example is the Memoradum rendered in the Federal government of United States “ Transition to IPv6 (Opens in new window) the most common actions in those programmes

Al respecto del último de los puntos, es importante señalar que ello no implica necesariamente una transición global de todo el equipamiento interno de las Administraciones Públicas. La utilización de los mecanismos de interoperabilidad descritos en la RFC 4213 puede evitar en algunos casos el coste de una migración completa y ser funcionalmente satisfactoria.

En el caso de las Administraciones Públicas españolas, en el proceso de migración será esencial contemplar el impacto de la transición a IPv6 de la “Red de Comunicaciones de las Administraciones Públicas Españolas”, definida en el artículo 43 de la Ley 11/2007. La evolución de dicha red, como elemento clave de la interoperabilidad entre las Administraciones Públicas Españolas, supondrá la modificación de los instrumentos de interoperabilidad que la soportan y que están definidos en el Real Decreto 4/2010 (“Plan de Direccionamiento de la Administración” previsto en su artículo 14 y Norma Técnica de Interoperabilidad “Requisitos de conexión a la Red de comunicaciones de las Administraciones Públicas españolas” previsto en su Disposición Adicional Primera).

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) .
