IPv6 Training: IPv6 Professional Security


Course Delivery

Live Instructor-Led Training

Course Description

The course IPv6 Professional Security (IPv6 Training) discusses every aspect of IPv6 security from the basics of the IPv6 protocol stack to protocol and application vulnerabilities. Beginning with a review of IPv6 addressing, the course introduces participants to the full range of security vulnerabilities and countermeasures. We discuss stateless and stateful DHCPv6, DNSv6, ICMPv6 and IGMPv6 amongst others. The course also explores routing protocols, ACLs, VLANs, firewalls, VOIP, IPv6 mobility & more.
