IPv6 Security Protection measures for the next Internet Protocol As the world’s networks migrate to the IPv6 protocol, networking professionals need a clearer understanding of the security risks, threats, and challenges this transition presents. In IPv6 Security, two of the world’s leading Internet security practitioners review each potential security issue introduced by IPv6 networking and present today’s best solutions. IPv6 Security offers guidance for avoiding security problems prior to widespread IPv6 deployment. The book covers every component of today’s networks, identifying specific security deficiencies that occur within IPv6 environments and demonstrating how to combat them. The authors describe best practices for identifying and resolving weaknesses as you maintain a dual stack network. Then they describe the security mechanisms you need to implement as you migrate to an IPv6-only network. The authors survey the techniques hackers might use to try to breach your network, such as IPv6 network reconnaissance, address spoofing, traffic interception, denial of service, and tunnel injection. The authors also turn to Cisco® products and protection mechanisms. You learn how to use Cisco IOS® and ASA firewalls and ACLs to selectively filter IPv6 traffic. You also learn about securing hosts with Cisco Security Agent 6.0 and about securing a network with IOS routers and switches. Multiple examples are explained for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris hosts. The authors offer detailed examples that are consistent with today’s best practices and easy to adapt to virtually any IPv6 environment. Scott Hogg, CCIE® No. 5133, is Director of Advanced Technology Services at Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI). He is responsible for setting the company’s technical direction and helping it create service offerings for emerging technologies such as IPv6. He is the Chair of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force. Eric Vyncke, Cisco Distinguished System Engineer, consults on security issues throughout Europe. He has 20 years’ experience in security and teaches security seminars as a guest professor at universities throughout Belgium. He also participates in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and has helped several organizations deploy IPv6 securely. Understand why IPv6 is already a latent threat in your IPv4-only network Plan ahead to avoid IPv6 security problems before widespread deployment Identify known areas of weakness in IPv6 security and the current state of attack tools and hacker skills Understand each high-level approach to securing IPv6 and learn when to use each Protect service provider networks, perimeters, LANs, and host/server connections Harden IPv6 network devices against attack Utilize IPsec in IPv6 environments Secure mobile IPv6 networks Secure transition mechanisms in use during the migration from IPv4 to IPv6 Monitor IPv6 security Understand the security implications of the IPv6 protocol, including issues related to ICMPv6 and the IPv6 header structure Protect your network against large-scale threats by using perimeter filtering techniques and service provider—focused security practices Understand the vulnerabilities that exist on IPv6 access networks and learn solutions for mitigating each This security book is part of the Cisco Press® Networking Technology Series.

Analyze Key Security Mechanisms and Approaches with this practical primer, the first book on the market to cover critical IPv6 security considerations. Dan Minoli, author of over 50 books on telecommunications and networks, and Jake Kouns, Chairman, CEO and CFO of the Open Security Foundation, discuss IPv6 security vulnerabilities, considerations, and mechanisms, and survey approaches for ensuring reliable and controlled IPv6 migration. The authors pool knowledge from industry resources, RFCs, and their own considerable security experience, discussing key IPv6 features, security issues, and potential exploitation of IPv6 protocol. They examine use of firewalls and encryption, and the fundamental topic of IPSec in IPv6 environments. Protect Networks from New and Growing Threats An increasing amount of mission-critical commercial and military operations are supported by distributed, mobile, always-connected, hybrid public-private networks, especially IPv6-based networks. The number of attackers or inimical agents continues to grow, and all computing environments must feature high-assurance security mechanisms. Even administrators in pure IPv4 environments require at least a rudimentary understanding of IPv6 security principles to safeguard traditional networks. This comprehensive book explains why security savvy approaches are indispensible and includes considerations for mixed IPv4 and IPv6 migration environments. More than an exhaustive treatment of IPv6 and security topics, this text is a point of departure for anyone adjusting to this technological transition and subtending security considerations. About the Authors Daniel Minoli, director of terrestrial systems engineering for SES Americom, has done extensive work with IPv6, including four books on the subject. Jake Kouns (CISSP, CISA, CISM), director of information security and network services for Markel Corporation, is also co-founder and president of the Open Security Foundation.

"By building IPv6 into Cisco IOS software, we are enabling continued growth of the Internet and its expansion into new applications and capabilities in a way that maintains compatibility with existing Internet services." -- Stephen Deering, Cisco Fellow and lead designer of the protocol Internetworking Protocol (IP) addresses are the unique numeric identifiers required of every device connected to the Internet. Two years ago, in response to the exponential increase in demand for new IP addresses, the Internet Engineering Task Force finalized its revision on IP addressing, called IP Version 6 and key hardware vendors such as Cisco and major Internet Service Providers like AOL announced plans to migrate to IP Version 6. That is now happening. Cisco Systems began incorporating Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) in its Cisco IOS Software in June, 2001. Cisco is currently the only major networking vendor to deliver IPv6 across multiple platforms. This book provides complete coverage of IPv6 strategies, configuration scenarios, and techniques to successfully deploy an IPv6 addressing and subnetting scheme on your network. Increasing the IP address size from 32 bits to 128 bits Supporting more levels of addressing hierarchy Supporting an increased number of addressable nodes Supporting simpler auto-configuration of addresses Improving the scalability of multicast routing by adding a "scope" field to multicast addresses Use a new "anycast address" to send a packet to any one of a group of nodes
