New edition of "Hacking IPv6 Networks v3.0" (May 31 - June 2, 2016 - Stuttgart)

posted Jan 29, 2016, 2:40 AM by SI6 Networks

Fernando Gont will be teaching our renowned "Hacking IPv6 Networks v3.0" training course in Germany!

Date: May 31 - June 2, 2016
Place: Stuttgart, Germany

Learning Objectives:
This course will provide the attendee with in-depth knowledge of IPv6 security, such that the attendee is able to evaluate and mitigate the security implications of IPv6 in production environments.

The attendee will be given an in-depth explanation of each topic covered in this course, and will learn -- through hands-on exercises -- how each feature can be exploited for malicious purposes. Subsequently, the attendee will be presented with a number of alternatives to mitigate each of the identified vulnerabilities.

This course will employ a range of open-source tools to evaluate the security of IPv6 networks, and to reproduce a number of IPv6-based attacks. During the course, the attendee will perform a large number of exercises in a network laboratory (with the assistance of the trainer), such that the concepts and techniques learned during this course are reinforced with hands-on exercises. The attendee will be required to perform a large number of IPv6 attacks, and to envision mitigation techniques for the corresponding vulnerabilities.

More information about the training course, and online registration is available here.

BCP 199, RFC 7610 on DHCPv6-Shield: Protecting against Rogue DHCPv6 Servers

posted Aug 24, 2015, 8:21 PM by Fernando Gont

The Abstract of the RFC is:

This document specifies a mechanism for protecting hosts connected to
a switched network against rogue DHCPv6 servers.  It is based on
DHCPv6 packet filtering at the layer 2 device at which the packets
are received.  A similar mechanism has been widely deployed in IPv4
networks ('DHCP snooping'); hence, it is desirable that similar
functionality be provided for IPv6 networks.  This document specifies
a Best Current Practice for the implementation of DHCPv6-Shield.
