IPv6 Security in LANs

March 28, 2011 (at 10 a.m.)

This workshop covers security aspects of IPv6 in LAN environments. We will discuss which threats are relevant, their associated vulnerabilities within IPv6′s architecture and how to address them in a operationally reasonable way.

The main focus lies on the behavior of IPv6 in (potentially large) networks within an organization and on the tunnel technologies many desktop operating systems are equipped with. A number of demos of both attacks and mitigating controls adds some extra benefit for the audience.

Given this is a specific security workshop it is assumed that the participants already dispose of some basic knowledge as for IPv6.
