Red Hat Enterprise Linux Receives Department of Defense IPv6 Certification

Filed under
Linux

Red Hat today announced that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 has received Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Special Interoperability Certification from the Defense Information System Agency (DISA) in accordance with the Department of Defense (DoD) IPv6 Master Test Plan.

The certification demonstrates Red Hat’s ongoing commitment to meeting the growing demands of government agencies and enterprises as they adapt to the next-generation Internet.

The DoD IPv6 product certification program began as a mandate from the DoD’s CIO and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Networks and Information Integration (ASD-NII) who targeted FY08 as a target IPv6 transition completion date for the DoD. The IPv6 Special Interoperability Certification for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 was conducted by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), which evaluates vendor products and DoD systems as IPv6 Capable.

With the certification, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 has been certified for the DoD’s Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (UC APL) for an IPv6 capable Host and Workstation and IPv6 capable Advanced Server. The certification ensures that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 meets the DoD’s set of mandated requirements, appropriate to its Product Class, necessary for it to interoperate with other IPv6 products employed in DoD IPv6 networks.

Samsung Z4 gets WiFi Certified with Tizen 3.0 onboard, Launching soon

Today, the next Tizen smartphone, which should be the named the Samsung Z4, has received its WiFi certification (certification ID: WFA70348) – Model number SM-Z400F/DS with firmware Z400F.001 on the 2.4Ghz band. WiFi certification is usually one of the last steps before a mobile device gets released and means a launch is coming real soon as we have already seen the Z4 make its debut appearance at the FCC. For the previous model, the Samsung Z2, we saw it get WIFi certified on 7 July and then launched on 23 August, a mere 6 weeks. Read more

  • Mux Controller Subsystem Proposed For Linux 4.12
    A new subsystem has been proposed for staging in the Linux 4.12 kernel. Peter Rosin has requested Greg KH pull in the mux controller subsystem for the Linux 4.12 kernel. He explained of this new subsystem, "This adds a new mux controller subsystem with an interface for accessing mux controllers, along with two drivers providing the interface (gpio and adg792) and two consumers (iio and i2c). This is done in such a way that several consumers can independently access the same mux controller if one controller controls several multiplexers, thus allowing sharing."
