Attacking the IPv6 Protocol Suite

After a short introduction on the differences of IPv4 to IPv6, the weaknesses in IPv6 will be shown. Highlight of the talk is the presentation of the THC-IPV6 Attack Toolkit, which includes all IPv6 attacks as well as a low level packet library for easy crafting packets.

IPv6 is arriving slowly in Europe, but an important topic in Japan and South Korea, as IPv4 addresses are scarce. IPv6 will change the issues of security and hacking by a large degree. This speech will give a short introduction on the protocol differences, then show the vulnerabilities in the protocols and finally present the THC-IPV6 Attack Toolkit which includes the tools for all vulnerabilities shown, as well as a very easy packet crafting library.
