DISA certifies Red Hat OS for IPv6

The Defense Information Systems Agency has certified the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system for swapping IPv6 packets with other Defense Department servers, Red Hat announced this month.

The software meets the requirements of the IPv6 Master Test Plan, a program initiated by DOD's Office of the Chief Information Officer and the assistant secretary of Defense for networks and information integration.

The Joint Interoperability Test Command assessed RHEL Version 5.2 against the criteria for certification. The software will be placed on the command's Unified Capabilities Approved Products List for both workstations and servers.

DOD has mandated that all the military services move their networks to IPv6.
