Securing IPv6

When it comes to IPv6, one of the more contentious issues is one of security. Uninformed analysts, vendors hawking IPv6 security products, and security ne’re-do-wells have created a mythos that IPv6 is inherently less secure than IPv4. The facts are that IPv6 is no less, or more, secure than its predecessor. It’s all about implementation.

The four-day Securing IPv6 course is focused on providing security architects and administrators with a wealth of practical information on the security impacts of IPv6 integration. Following an implementation oriented format of topic introduction, known security issues, and mitigation practices, this course delivers a practical and reasonable approach to IPv6 adoption and IT security.
