Assured identification of source/destination
Where does IPV6 come into this?

The resistance of US and other ISPs to implement IPV6 as a basic service is hard to understand - except when it comes to money, of course.

Can IPV6 help here?

I'm speaking from a low level of understanding of the identidy issue although I understand TCP/IP and <Most> of its shortcomings with respect to verifiable identity and spoofing of message headers.

No Perfect Solution
Fixing the flaw in TCP/IP is undoubtedly a daunting task which is probably one reason it's been largely unchanged all these years. I am interested in reading all the proposed solutions and who knows, maybe one day there will be some sort of revelating new implementation using IP or some other protocol. But at the end of the day, there will always be a way into the network, there is no perfect solution.

ETSI doing next gen protocol work for the telecom sector
Thanks Jeff, great post. The Next Generation Protocol (NGP) folks at the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) are also doing some great - related - work around finding ways of avoiding the security and efficiency flaws in TCP/IP as telecom networks evolve with SDN, virtualization and 5G.

P2P
So the fundamental idea is to move everything to a P2P overlay network.
