IPv6 will be the next big thing in many networks, as connectivity grows beyond everything currently known. Going this step without introducing operational or security problems can be a challenging task. In this workshop we will show you how to do exactly that. After a short (half-day) refresher of the main concepts and protocols in IPv6 networks we will cover the security aspects of IPv6 and discuss migration strategies.
Where IPv6 natively helps security
Comparison of the trust models of IPv4 and IPv6
The role of DHCP & DNS and why they might become primary attack targets.
New protocols => new threats?
Problems with tunnel/transition technologies
Mitigating controls on host, gateway and network level.
Strategies and approaches for efficient and secure migration scenarios. Pitfalls of migration projects and some case studies.
