IPv6 Security Migration PDF Print E-mail

Class Length:  Four Days

Course Description:

The move from IPv4 to Ipv6 is inevitable. The IPv4 address space has been exhausted and the new protocol is placing demands on networks to be upgraded to handle the additional traffic created by a variety of new applications and devices. Migrating to the new protocol requires planning and a clear migration path to provide a smooth transition from one network architecture to another, reduce risks and minimize costs.
The IPv6 security course offers hands-on training teaching the latest security issues related to IPv6. You will learn how to recognize and proactively mitigate IPv6 attacks by configuring both IPv6 Access-Control List (ACL) and creating firewall statefull rules. Hands-on labs will be used to re-enforce topics discussed during class. IPv6 hacking tools will be used to actively attack ACL and firewall configurations.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Learn how to write an IPv6 security policy and best practices
  • Create ACL and reflexive ACLs to protect your companies network
  • Make firewalls IPv6 aware
