IPv9? Huh?

july 5, 2004

I am scratching my head to what IPv9 is, but apparently China is using it.

China's Internet technology Ipv9,which being compatible with IPv4 and IPv6,has been formally adapted and popularized into the civil and commercial sector. Stated at the Industrialization & Development Seminar held at Zhejiang University, its founder Xie Jianping said that the Ipv9 protocol is based on a ten-digit computing method, and it has its own address protocol, nameplate protocol, transitional protocol, and digital domain name regulations and standards. Along with being compatible with IPv4 and IPv6, IPv9 can also realize logistic separations between them and safely control them.
Uh, I wonder why? Maybe it makes censorship easier?
