The first IPv6 RFC was written in December 1995. Slowly and steadily it has been creeping into our lives in the form of “out of the box” configurations, partial protocol implementations, and semi-supported devices. This “on by default” technology is expected to run in parallel with IPv4 in the short term and completely replace it in the long term. It will require a mental shift to manage and many of the techniques we use to manage IPv4 will not be practical in an IPv6 world.
Join us for a journey of IPv6 where we will explore the implications of default configurations, dual stack deployments, surprising behaviour and even some steps of basic exploitation.
It’s the unknown protocol you’re already using. Have you looked at it yet?
