Automating IPv6 Deployments

March 15, 2016 (at 9:30 a.m.) in Day 2 Track 2

Researching IPv6 security challenges is fun. Figuring out how IPv6 works is attractive. Fitting IPv6 idiosyncrasies into your network design is still interesting. Deploying IPv6 on all servers, switches, routers, firewalls and load balancers is absolutely boring (once you figure out what needs to be done) and error-prone, resulting in potentially awesome troubleshooting experiences.

However, we can automate every well-defined repeatable process, and IPv6 deployment is no exception. This presentation will help you get started on your journey to automated IPv6 network deployment.
