AbstractThe current global Internet USES the TCP/IP protocol cluster, the current version is IPv4. The IPv4 is with 32-bit addresses, the maximum number of computers connected to the Internet in the world is 232. With the development of Internet of things, big data and cloud storage and other technologies, the limited address space defined by IPv4 has been exhausted. To expand the address space, the IETF designed the next generation IPv6 to replace IPv4. IPv6 using a 128-bit address length that provides almost unlimited addresses. However, with the development and application of the Internet of things, big data and cloud storage, IPv6 has some shortcomings in its addressing structure design; security and network compatibility, These technologies are gradually applied in recent years, the continuous development of new technologies application show that the IPv6 address structure design ideas have some fatal defects. This paper proposed a route to upgrade the original IPv4 by studying on the structure of IPv6 "spliced address", and point out the defects in the design of IPv6 interface ID and the potential problems such as security holes.
