IPv6-monostack - upstream Linux SIIT/NAT64

Commoditizing NAT64 and IP/ICMP translation to accelerate IPv6 deployment

NAT64/SIIT technology is critical in enabling networks to transition away from the legacy internet protocol IPv4, yet this network function is currently expensive and hard to deploy, seriously hampering adoption. We believe we can remedy this situation by getting this translation technology accepted into the upstream Linux kernel thus paving the way to rapid and widespread adoption, accelerating IPv6 adoption overall.
