No more IPv4

Impact on applications and measuring IPv6 deployment

The IPv4 address exhaustion brings a broken Internet with the heavy use of NAT. While HTTP is now a major vehicle for any application, and while NAT is friendly with HTTP, there are still issues with large scale NAT as used by some ISPs (mainly mobile). This session explains the security and application issues of NAT, but also explains how an application can easily be extended to support the next generation IPv6, which does not require NAT.
