Subject: [ipv6hackers] IPv6 Security Master Thesis

Hello everybody,

a few days ago I released my master thesis which has the topic "IPv6 Security Test Laboratory". It contains deep explanations about IPv6 security attacks and lists the results of three tested firewalls. I wrote it until February 2013 at the Ruhr-Uni Bochum (Germany).

The thesis mainly consists the following chapters:

- Introduction to the IPv6 Specification: This is simply an overview of the IPv6 protocol itself.
- IPv6 Security Vulnerabilities: In this chapter I explain many (hopefully almost all) security weaknesses that arise with IPv6. I always give a theoretic overview and show the tools with which theses vulnerabilities can be exploited (mainly THC-IPv6). Along with many listings I provide information about how these tools work. I list some “Firewalls’s Best Practices” and finally present a big table in which all attacks and tools are summarized.
- IPv6 Security Laboratory & Tests: To test several firewalls against IPv6 security issues I built an independent laboratory which is presented in this chapter. I also list the used IPv6 security attacks and present the results of the tested firewalls (Cisco ASA, Juniper SSG, Palo Alto PA).

The thesis is full downloadable under:

Maybe some of you will find it interesting. If so, feel free to send a comment
