Firewall deep-inspection functionality of application traffic in a mixed IPv4/IPv6 environment was validated and compared with the same test scenarios in an IPv4 oenvironment. A realistic protocol mix was configured to simulate the forwarding and blocking capabilities in an actual network.
A critical concern that must be addressed in an IPv4/IPv6 transition environment is equivalent quality of the user experience. If a security device performs adequately wIPv4, it should also sustain comparable performance levels when processing mixed IPv4/IPv6 and pure IPv6 traffic. Responding to that concern, the 2006 Moonv6 Transition Test Suite included performance tests that compared security devices IPv6 and mixed IPv4/IPv6 performance. These tests used real-world application mix traffic to measure the metrics. The tests successfully validated that security devices casustain adequate performance and QoE levels in transition IPv4/IPv6 environments.
