wolfSSL IPv6 Compatibility

For some time now wolfSSL has been compatible with and will continue to support IPv6. While according to Google`s IPv6 adoption statistics only 4% of the Internet has adopted IPv6, that number is more than doubling every year. At the beginning of 2013 the percentage of IPv6 adoption was only 1.06%, and at the end of 2013 it was sitting at 2.84%. And now only halfway through 2014, it has risen to 4.06%.

With IPv6 on the rise, the need for an SSL library that supports it is also on the rise. By using the wolfSSL embedded library you are future proofing yourself against the rise of IPv6 with an embedded library built by individuals that have had years of experience securing both IPv4 and IPv6 connections. By design wolfSSL supports both IPv4 and IPv6 and is considered IP neutral, meaning it should work out of the box on either protocol without any additional configurations.
