Basic IPv6 Attacks & Defenses. Hands-On Workshop

March 14, 2016 (at 9:30 a.m.) in Day 1 Track 2


This is a Troopers IPv6 Security Summit classic! It’s an introductory workshop to attacks in IPv6 networks and associated protection strategies/approaches. We will cover all relevant available tools and play with them, including hands-on sessions (mostly with Cisco devices, HP can be included on request, see also below) for the participants. For all attacks covered mitigation strategies will be discussed, together with an evaluation as for their actual security benefit and operational feasibility.
