Book Review – IPv6 Security
As you might know I’m quite interested in IPv6. Recently a new book about IPv6 security was published by Cisco Press.
The book covers IPv6 protocols vulnerabilities, perimeter security (firewalls), securing network devices and (routing) protocols, host security, IPSec and mobile IPv6 security. The network part concentrates on Cisco’s IOS and PixOS, but this book also overs host security using Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris and Windows as example systems. Also some tools to attack your IPv6 infrastructure are presented. You might even learn a thing or two about securing IPv4 networks as many (Cisco) features exists for both protocols.
The only drawback for me is that the term hacker is once again associated with the evil attacker who wants to steal your data.
