netbuzz writes “US military officials are threatening IT suppliers with the loss of military business if they don’t use their own wares to start deploying IPv6 on their corporate networks and public-facing Web services immediately. ‘We are pressing our vendors in any way we can,’ says Ron Broersma, DREN Chief Engineer and a Network Security Manager for the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. ‘We are competing one off against another. If they want to sell to us, we’re asking them: Are you using IPv6 features in your own products on your corporate networks? Is your public Web site IPv6 enabled? We’ve been doing this to all of the vendors.’”
