                        Complex Addressing in IPv6

Abstract

   The 128-bit length of IPv6 addresses (RFC 4291) allows for new and    innovative address schemes that can adapt to the challenges of    today's complex network world.  It also allows for new and improved    security measures and supports advanced cloud computing challenges.
