The origins of Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) date back to December 1998 with the publication of RFC 2460, which describes IPv6 as the successor to IPv4, the standard communications protocol still in use by the majority of users today. This transition away from IPv4 was a direct response to the foreseeable exhaustion of 32-bit IPv4 addresses, which are virtually all but assigned—all 4.3 billion.
