Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Protocol Security Assessment

Abstract

It is recognized that the introduction of Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) into operational networks may pose additional security risks and introduce potential vulnerabilities in addition to those inherent in current Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) networks. While existing vulnerability assessment techniques should provide a level of security equivalent to that of IPv4 networks, the issues regarding IPv6 security assessments must be analyzed. The purpose of this paper is to provide high-level protocol security assessment issues associated with the migration to IPv6.
