CIRA IPv6 Policy

CIRA’s intention for publishing an IPv6 Security policy is to apply best practices to the implementation and overall management of the IPv6 protocol on CIRA’s network. The IPv6 protocol shares many similarities with IPv4 but there are also significant differences. These differences include 128 bit IP address space, additional features in ICMPv6, new multicast addresses and neighbour discovery just to name a few. These new features also give way to new attack vectors and vulnerabilities which must be mitigated.
