Hi all,


About Cisco HSRP (Hot Standby Routing Protocol), one of the favor attack
vectors is malicious attacker could perform the HSRP hijacking by claiming
a higher priority and become active router in the redundancy router pairs.
It would happen in IPv4 network, due to insecure authentication.

For IPv6 network, HSRPv2 would be in placed. Would this HSRP hijacking
technique works and applicable for IPv6 environment? Do anyone have a
success test case for this?
