AbstractUnderstanding the IP address depletion and the importance of handling security issues in IPv6 deployment can make IT personnel becomes more functional and helpful to the organization. It also applied to the management people who are responsible for approving the budget or organization policy related to network security. Unfortunately, new employees or fresh graduates may not really understand the challenge related to IPv6 deployment. In order to be equipped with appropriate knowledge and skills, these people may require a few weeks of attending workshops or training. Thus, of course involving some implementation cost as well as sacrificing allocated working hours. As an alternative to save cost and to help new IT personnel become quickly educated and familiar with IPv6 deployment issues, this paper presented a learning kit that has been designed to include self-learning features that can help neophytes to learn about IPv6 at their own pace. The kit contains some compact notes, brief security model and framework as well as a guided module with supporting quizzes to maintain a better understanding of the topics. Since IPv6 is still in the early phase of implementation in most of developing countries, this kit can be an additional assisting tool to accelerate the deployment of IPv6 environment in any organization. The kit also can be used by teachers and trainers as a supporting tool in the classroom. The pre-alpha testing has attracted some potential users and the findings proved their acceptance. The kit has prospective to be further enhanced and commercialized.
