PTA-logoAsia Pacific Network Information Center (APNIC) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) are organizing a 3 days’ workshop on the topic of Internet Resource Management, IP version 6 (IPv6) and DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC).

The training workshop is scheduled to be held from 18 – 20 July, 2012 at Best Western Hotel Islamabad.

This training workshop will highlight key essentials of Internet resource management. It will focus on understanding the structures, processes, procedures and policies involved in requesting, allocating and managing Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and Autonomous System (AS) numbers. With regards to DNSSEC, the concept of DNS and security mechanisms, such as TSIG and DNSSEC. The deployment of DNSSEC will also be discussed in detail with practical demonstration.

During day 2 and 3, the training workshop will focus on providing an understanding and hands-on exposure to IPv6, its structure, operation and technical features. IPv6 addressing and architectures and the issues related to the deployment, transition and co-existence with IPv4 will also be examined.

The workshop will also feature hands-on IPv6 configurations on host computers, as well as IPv6 network building and configuration scenarios. Participants will have the opportunity to work on lab exercises related to deploying IPv6 in dual-stack operational IXP/ ISP environments as well as native IPv6 transit.
