Full implementation of native IPv6 networks may be very far in the future, or never; but IPv6 traffic is routing in, out, or to your network. This internet protocol has been around since the early 1990’s. Governments, large corporations, and industry leaders are implementing it globally. Information Security (InfoSec) analysts and managers must be pro-active in pursuing education and training on IPv6. Online learning resources are increasingly available. Along with improving expertise, InfoSec professionals must improve network visibility for IPv6 traffic. Using Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) and honeypots can help identify potential threats and reduce network impact. InfoSec professionals have the ability to mitigate network risks, after improving expertise and visibility

IPv6

This contribution comes from Rahul Ravella.

IPv6 has almost become a requirement for industries as well as end users. With the exhaustion of all the IPv4 addresses and the growth of number of devices the need has finally come. This paper will talk about the advantages of IPv6, its features compared to IPv4, the different headers it has and how they work. The paper will also talk about DHCPv6 as well as IPv6 auto-configuration, their features and how they are configured and work. These features should provide an idea on the advantages of IPv6 and provide an insight to companies and businesses to make the move towards it.
