If We Deploy IPv6, Will It Help or Hurt Our Security? Netcast Archive

Posted on Aug 18, 2014

As the likely date for worldwide IPv4 address exhaustion is now less than three year away, many sites have started thinking about how they will handle IPv6 on their campuses. Some may welcome IPv6, at least in part because they believe deploying IPv6 may improve their security posture; other sites may be "dragging their heels," worried that deploying IPv6 will expose them to new security vulnerabilities for which few solutions are yet available. Can both perspectives be right? What should campuses be doing? We'll consider issues such as pre-attack network reconnaissance; IPv6 support in firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and other network appliances; potential issues with 6to4 translation gateways; gratuitous global IPv6 transit and the odd routing it can cause; the myth that IPv6 always employs IPSEC; and the absence to-date of things like IPv6 DNS blocklists.
