Will we still need NAT at our edge for IPv6 deployment? 

It is an oft-repeated statement that NAT is an artefact of IPv4 address space shortage, and that will not be required in IPv6 deployment. The ability to give each host a publicly-routable address, and achieve end-to-end connectivity is touted as a notable benefit of IPv6. Network engineers have traditionally looked at NAT as an evil, which complicates deployment and operations. 

The presentation was prepared by Mr Sanjeev Gupta, The Vice Chairman of IPv6 Forum (Singapore Chapter) for The Information Security Seminar 2013. For more information on the event, please visit https://www.isseminar2013.sg/index.php.
