Solaris 10 receives DoD IPv6 certification
By user12611852 on Apr 01, 2008
Solaris 10 has become the first Unix or Linux Operating System to receive IPv6 Certification from the DoD Joint Interoperability and Test Command (JITC). JITC is the DoD organization responsible for validating products for use in the US DoD. This most recent certifcation of Solaris for IPv6 standards extends our earlier IPv6 logo certification performed at the University of New Hampshire Interoperabity Lab.
Why should you care?
Sun's continuing commitment to standards in support of the Federal Government means that our customers will be able to move quickly into their transition to the next generation of the internet.
If you'd like to try out Solaris 10 or our next generation of Solaris, known as Solaris Express, they are both available via free downloads and include free right-to-use license. If you are not sure of the difference between the various Solaris editions, please see my earlier blog entry.
