As the use of internet technologies becomes a more prominent aspect of Canadian life, government entities and academic institutions are implementing appropriate solutions to handle this expansion. Internet Protocol address management (IPAM) is a strategy that helps to handle the expansion of the addressing space as it relates to online resources and connected devices. With the advent of IPv6 addresses the Internet of Things (IoT), adequate addressing services have become a necessity.
Surveys of system administrators suggest that phpIPAM is the most popular IPAM implementation in the country. This might be because it's so easy to install. The software installs on Debian servers with only a minimum of effort. The same steps should also work on Ubuntu, which is quickly replacing Debian throughout the Anglophone provinces. Ubuntu shares a great deal of code with Debian, which also means that the same IPAM shell scripts should work on either platform.
Running the IP address infrastructure on a company network is an important part of network administration. However, with development in network infrastructure, managing IP addresses has not been easy. Many IT administrators still use custom database applications and spreadsheets to track Internet protocol address allocation and utilization. Internet Protocol Management (IPAM) is a platform that helps network administrators to manage a wide range of network requirements.
The Domain Name System is one of the foundational technologies of the Internet. It is the central means by which Internet-connected computers can be "named" so web clients and users can find them automatically. Unfortunately, it is also the target of many hackers. Fortunately a DNS firewall can help prevent unauthorized access.
