Thanks for sharing the slides.

I went through this set (the one above), and must say I don't agree with
it. The reasons are those described in the slide set that I shared in
the first e-mail of this thread.

In short: There is not going to be any additional use of IPsec as a
result of IPv6 deployment. And not, there is not going to be increased
security with IPv6. Actually, at least in the short and near term, it is
going to be the other way around.

Rather than making claims about "improved security", we should raise
awareness about IPv6 security challenges, such that they are mitigated,
and the security level of the involved networks does not *decrease*.
