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. Security titles from Cisco Press help networking professionals secure critical data and resources, prevent and mitigate network attacks, and build end-to-end self-defending networks.

The authoritative and comprehensive guide to IPv6 security topics. * * Learn about the risks of running the IPv6 protocol without security * Identify and avoid the major problems and pitfalls common when deploying IPv6 * Discover the techniques used by hackers, and see what Cisco products can defeat them. * Master current best practices for securing IPv6 networks. IPv6 Security teaches the reader about the security threats that exist when running the IPv6 protocol and how to secure an IPv6 network. This comprehensive guide to IPv6 security provides a broad range of coverage of threats, solutions, and planning strategies that any network professional tasked with networks security will find essential as the world's networks move over more aggressively to this new protocol. Topics are arranged to cover the threats first and then describe ways to combat these threats, providing the necessary background but getting to the solutions needed quickly and efficiently. Each section provides a brief understanding of the technology that has some security deficiencies, and then covers the threats against that part of the protocol and the potential risks. Then each section discusses how to protect against those threats. The second part of the book includes a review of protection mechanisms from Cisco, giving the reader cookie-cutter examples to follow that are in line with the current best practices for securing IPv6. This book brings together all the research that has been conducted to date on IPv6 security and consolidate all of these thoughts into one volume, providing a good mix of the concepts and the practice of IPv6 Security.

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.

This book contains everything you need to make your application program support IPv6. IPv6 socket APIs (RFC2553) are fully described with real-world examples. It covers security, a great concern these days. To secure the Internet infrastructure, every developer has to take a security stance - to audit every line of code, to use proper API and write correct and secure code as much as possible. To achieve this goal, the examples presented in this book are implemented with a security stance. Also, the book leads you to write secure programs. For instance, the book recommends against the use of some of the IPv6 standard APIs - unfortunately, there are some IPv6 APIs that are inherently insecure, so the book tries to avoid (and discourage) the use of such APIs. Another key issue is portability. The examples in the book should be applicable to any of UNIX based operating systems, MacOS X, and Windows XP. * Covers the new protocol just adopted by the Dept of Defense for future systems * Deals with security concerns, including spam and email, by presenting the best programming standards * Fully describes IPv6 socket APIs (RFC2553) using real-world examples * Allows for portability to UNIX-based operating systems, MacOS X, and Windows XP
