Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a communication protocol and a successor of IPv4. The reason for inventing IPv6 was mainly because of the limited number of addresses in IPv4. The main tasks of the new version of the protocol are following: increasing the space of available addresses by increasing the length of the address from 32 bits to 128 bits, simplifying the protocol header and providing its flexibility by introducing extensions, as well as introducing support for service classes, authentication and data consistency. The protocol is also known as IP Next Generation and IPng.
