Pentesting and Securing IPv6 Networks

Register for March 13-14 Course

NOTE: This is the final time scheduled that this training is offered in North America

Instructor: Marc "van Hauser" Heuse


This training explains the IPv6 issues, concentrating on the security vulnerabilities inherent in the protocol as well as configuration issues and implementation problems. All so far known vulnerabilities are presented and students will be able to try them out hands-on themselves with supplied tools on the test network.

Then - switching sides - it is explained how to secure IPv6 systems (Windows, Linux, routers, firewalls) and especially large networks including routing and how to solve the difficult firewalling questions which arise with IPv6. Features like SEND, new DHCP6 developments and tunnels etc. are included.

After the training you have learned how to test your own systems and networks for IPv6 security issues and how to secure them.

Learn directly from one of the main IPv6 security researcher and author of the thc-ipv6 toolkit.
