A lot of myths have been created around IPv6 security. These include:

  • Security is a key component of the protocol
  • Change from network-centric to host-centric paradigm
  • Increased/compulsory use of IPsec
  • Etc

These myths have contributed to a general misunderstanding of the security threats of IPv6, thus negatively affecting the emerging (or existing) IPv6 networks. This presentation separates fudge from fact, and offers a more realistic view of “IPv6 security threats” and how to mitigate those vulnerabilities. It is meant to Influence the way in which we think about IPv6 security (and IPv6 in general).
