Webinar details

IPv6 security challenges are almost identical to their IPv4 counterparts. There are layer-2 attacks, denial-of-service attacks, eavesdropping and session hijacking attacks, and routing security challenges.

This webinar describes the major IPv6 security challenges, the countermeasures you can take, and Cisco IOS features that can help you build secure IPv6 infrastructure. It covers the following topics:

  • Typical IPv6 security issues and attack vectors;
  • First-hop (layer-2) vulnerabilities;
  • Denial-of-service attacks, including the attacks specific to IPv6 protocol stack;
  • User authentication and authorization;
  • Routing security;
  • Dual-stack- and tunneling-related exposures.


The webinar covers these topics:

  • Typical IPv6 security issues
  • IPv6 attacks with strong IPv4 similarities
  • First-hop IPv6 vulnerabilities and prevention mechanisms
  • Secure Neighbor Discovery (SeND) and Binding Integrity Guard (RFC 6620)
  • Denial of service attacks
  • Local and remote neighbor discovery attacks
  • Attacks using IPv6 extension headers
  • User authentication and authorization challenges
  • Routing security
  • Dual-stack and tunneling-related exposures
