Router distribution Vyatta is now certified for IPv6


The new version 6.1 of the router distribution Vyatta not only offers more security, but also IPv6 support.


The latest version 6.1 of the router distribution Vyatta has received a "IPv6 Ready" certification. The manufacturer has implemented a new feature called Cloud Bridging for the users of Cloud. This feature allows cloud clusters in physically separated networks to communicate with each other, as if they were connected to the same network segment. Furthermore, the manufacturer has again improved the security of its router distribution. They have done this by, amongst other things, creating a partnership with Sourcefirce, the developers of the Intrusion-Detection-Systems Snort.

Vyatta is available in different editions, such as the paid Subscription Edition, the hardware appliance, but also the free Open Source variant. The latter is missing a number of interesting features, such as the newly won IPv6 certification. The so-called Core version offers at least basic routing. It also has a Stateful firewall, load balancing of the WAN ports and can create IPSec and SSL-based VPNs.
