Abstract

The version 6 of Internet Protocol (IPv6) is being gradually deployed worldwide. This paper analyzes the security of IPv6 protocol. is the analysis concludes that serious security vulnerabilities exist that are IPv6 specific. Therefore additional security measures are needed and more capable security management tools are required in IPv6 networks in order to achieve a security posture at parity with that of the IPv4 networks.
