Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN) started issuing next version of Internet addresses IPv6, which is going to make it easy for security agencies to identify each Internet user.

The present version of Internet that is IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4), is limited and service providers often assign single IP address to many users which makes it difficult to identify the end user.

The number of IPv6 addresses available is enormous.  ISPs (Internet Service Providers) can allocate an IP address to their users. People can be easily identified if they are using IPv6.

Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), which is one of the five authorised bodies for issuing Internet addresses, has recognised Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN) for issuing IP addresses in India.

IRINN has been set-up under the state-run NIXI. The new addresses are going to be be multiple times cheaper for companies than IPv4 addresses.

Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN) is issuing initial set-of IPv6 addresses in price range starting at 21999 rupees as compared to prevalent rate of around 66000 rupees in Asia Pacific region.
