So. It appears that law enforcement is worried about IPv6 as it has noticed that things will be different with IPv6. They believe that this will make it easier for criminals to hide. I’m a little concerned that they cannot puzzle out a key point as it pertains to IP addresses.
IP ADDRESSES ARE NOT UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS FOR PEOPLE
Can you hear me now?
U.S. and Canadian law enforcement agencies are warning that a historic switch to the next-generation Internet protocol called IPv6 may imperil investigations by making it more difficult to trace who’s using which electronic address.
FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Royal Canadian Mounted Police officials have told industry representatives that IPv6 traceability is necessary to identify people suspected of crimes. The FBI has even suggested that a new law may be necessary if the private sector doesn’t do enough voluntarily.
A new law because law enforcement cannot puzzle out how IPv6 works? Seriously? This is like saying that people should use a horse and buggy because cars with internal combustion are all big and scary.
Give me a break.
