IPv6 IPv4 Threat Comparison
Meeting: NANOG31
Date / Time: 2004-05-25 10:30am - 11:00am
Room: Grand Ballroom

Darrin Miller, Cisco Systems

Darin Miller is a security researcher in Cisco\'s Critical Infrastructure Assurance Group (CIAG). Before coming to the CIAG, Darrin worked primarily as a consulting systems engineer, where he worked with large corporations on network security architecture. He has written and contributed to several whitepapers on the subject of network security. Prior to his five years at Cisco, Darrin held various positions in both IT and security consulting during his 15 years in networking.

Sean Convery, Cisco

Sean Convery is a security architect at Cisco Systems, focusing on new security technologies. Sean\'s first book, Network Security Architectures (Cisco Press, 2004), was recently published and details secure network design methods. He has been with Cisco for six years and was the principle architect of the original Cisco SAFE Security Blueprint, as well as author of several of its white papers.
Abstract: IPv6 is seeing increased deployments worldwide and is expected to ramp up significantly with the U.S. Department of Defense mandate of IPv6 by 2008. Much of the existing security discussion around IPv6 has focused on its inclusion of IPsec. While the confidentiality, integrity, and authentication features of IPsec are clearly useful, IPSec deployment will suffer many of the same deployment challenges as are currently seen in IPv4 (identity, key management, and configuration issues).



This session will present IPv6 security as contrasted with IPv4 from a threats perspective. Common threats you may be familiar with in IPv4 will be compared to how those threats may evolve in IPv6 and what new considerations or best practices will be necessary to mitigate these threats. Potential best practices for the use of IPv6 in a dual-stack mode in an enterprise Internet edge will be presented as well.



A detailed paper on the threat comparison is available at:
