IPv6 to Fragment or Not to Fragment

As the world prepares to deploy and use IPv6, the IETF is apparently still debating some of the standards related to the “new” IP protocol. In particular, there is a debate about whether fragmentation should be allowed or not. An excellent article on the topic was posted on a security-related blog, a good read if you’re involved in IPv6 planning or implementation: IETF discusses deprecation of IPv6 fragmentation (Virus Bulletin).
