IPv6 Attack tools - Scott Hogg (TakeDownCon Rocket City 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

IPv6 Attack tools - Scott Hogg

Many international organizations already have IPv6 networks, some organizations are working on their transitions to IPv6 and others are contemplating what IPv6 means to them. However, many organizations already have IPv6 running on their networks and they don’t even realize it. Many computer OSs now default to running both IPv4 and IPv6 which could lead to security vulnerabilities if one is not prepared. IPv6 security vulnerabilities currently exist “in the wild” and as the popularity of the IPv6 protocol increases so will the number of threats. This session will cover the overview of IPv6 security threats and protection measures. This session will cover recently released IPv6 attack tools that target the Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) and how Ethernet switch manufacturers have created protection measures.

Bio: Scott Hogg is the CTO for Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI), a founding member of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force, and a member of the Infoblox IPv6 Center of Excellence. Scott has a B.S. in Computer Science, a M.S. in Telecommunications, along with his CCIE (#5133), CISSP (#4610), among many other vendor and industry certifications.
