This post will be all about Hurricane Electric their IPv6 certifications.
Myself, I recently got the Sage certifications (currently waiting for my shirt to be delivered) and I learned a lot from it.
There are different levels of the certifications. You have practical questions, where you have to setup IPv6 on your server, and you have technical tests, which consists of technical questions about IPv6.
IPv6 is importan. IPv4 is getting exhausted. IANA already allocated all of the IPs that it can. (without having to do a major re-vamp of the internet, for example, having to allow 240.0.0.0/4 -currently a reserved address space, former class E network-, would require a major update for all of the infrastructure, so this won’t happen most likely.)
It is important that more people learn about IPv6 and that it becomes adopted widely, as it won’t take long before all RIRs do not have any IPs left. (Like ARIN).
As a bonus, if you get the Sage certification, you get a shirt!
Thank you for reading this and I hope that you will enjoy the HE IPv6 certification as much as I did.
Thank you for reading.
