Rudman is also the chief executive officer of the Internet Exchange Point of Nigeria (IXPN) and doubled as the current president, Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), the managers of .NG country code domain.

Disclosing this, the founding President of IPv6 Forum, Prof. Latif Ladid, in a letter of nomination issued in Luxembourg, Europe and sighted by 

ITREALMS on Sunday evening, said that the new Internet IPv6 Hall of Fame is pleased and honored to welcome Rudman to this distinguished list of inductees who have been selected for the year 2022.

“We have attached your award certificate for your use on your web site, Twitter account or LinkedIn. Feel free to add the 6HoF Logo to your Business card or your email signature,” he said

Ladid also said that the prime purpose of this initiative is to widely publish the faces of the IPv6 Experts and Evangelists as we have found out that the prime IPv6 contributors are not really known among even those that should know such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), Open Networking Foundation (ONF), Linux Foundation, United Nations Internet Governance Forum (UN-IGF), and obviously the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and corporate enterprise to name a few.

Equally, he pointed out that this induction will give another shot in the arm of IPv6 by getting these groups of experts to dig out Mr. Rudman’s works, speeches, papers and learn from him.

“You have made a genuinely valuable contribution to the Internet to take it to the next level to flourish in the service of mankind as the one and only true vehicle to empower people and progress our world to a far better and richer place,” he eulogized Rudman.

The main objective of IPv6 Forum is to promote deployment and coordinated uptake of the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) with support from industry, education, research communities and government agencies enabling equitable access to technology and knowledge.

He recalled that Internet world has been using the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) for the last three decades. Pointing out that despite tremendous success, IPv4 has shown signs of strain especially in its depleted IP address space and its growing security concerns. Stressing that IPv6 preserves everything good in today's Internet, and adds much more, such as virtually unlimited IP address space to connect everyone and everything, stateless auto-configuration, seamless mobility, automated network management, end to end security and new optional service levels.
ITREALMS recollected that the IPv6 Forum had in 2018 established the IPv6 Hall of Fame (6HoF) to recognize and celebrate the experts and evangelists of IPv6 who have made extraordinary contributions to the design and large-scale deployment of IPv6 around the world.

Historically, the new internet IPv6 Hall of Fame kicked-off in 2018 in Nanjing at the GNTC Conference organized by the China IPv6 Council coordinated by the BII Group with the first IPv6 Hall of Famers include Dr Vint Cerf, VP and Internet Evangelist at Google and Honorary Chair of the IPv6 Forum since its creation; Dr. Wu Hequan, Academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering and Dr. Jun Murai, Father of the Internet in Japan and Founder of the IPv6 Promotion Council.

According to Ladid, the 2022 IPv6 Hall of Famers were very balanced mix of IPv6 experts, IPv6 evangelists, IPv6 large-scale deployers, IPv6 trainers and IPv6 Ready Logo Programme experts.
