Internet Protocol version 6

Intenet Protocol is used in the Internet Layer of the TCP/IP protocol.IPv6 is the latest version of internet protocol which uses 128 bit address older one IPv4 is using 32 bit address.

The IPV6 has come into existance due to the scarsity of the IP addresses. The IPV4 provided at max 2 power of 32 addresses and due to unlimited growth of internet IPV6 was necessary. However it takes time for complete IPV6 era as almost all the protocols (networking - IP ) in existance are written for IPV4 and migration is a pain. Meanwhile the Private IP concept with NAT (Network address translation) has temporarily reduced the need for IPV6.
