The two statements that are true about IPv6 are:

B. Routing tables are less complicated. F. Fewer bits makes IPv6 easier to configure.


A. Broadcast is available. - This statement is false. In IPv6, broadcast addresses are replaced by multicast addresses, and packets are sent to a group of nodes instead of being broadcasted to all nodes on a network.

B. Routing tables are less complicated. - This statement is true. IPv6 uses a simpler and more hierarchical address structure, which reduces the size of routing tables and makes routing more efficient. The use of subnetting and aggregation also simplifies routing table management.

C. The address pool will eventually deplete. - This statement is false. IPv6 uses 128-bit addresses, which provide an enormous address space that is virtually infinite. Therefore, it is unlikely that the IPv6 address pool will ever be exhausted.

D. Data encryption is built into the packet frame. - This statement is false. While IPv6 supports encryption through the use of IPsec, it is not built into the packet frame by default.

E. Increased NAT is required. - This statement is false. With IPv6, there is no need for NAT as there is with IPv4, because the address space is large enough to provide unique addresses for every device on a network.

F. Fewer bits make IPv6 easier to configure. - This statement is true. The IPv6 address structure uses a fixed length of 128 bits, which makes it easier to configure and manage addresses. The simplified structure also reduces the likelihood of errors in address configuration.
