IPv6 Changes Security: Is Your Business Ready?

IPv6 Changes Security: Is Your Business Ready?
June 15, 2011 EC-Council

The Internet is running out of room and, as a result, it is about to undergo a major transition to expand the number of available addresses online. This transition is from today’s IPv4 IP protocol to the new IPv6 standard. Businesses need to know and understand this transition – because there will be new security problems in the interim period.

Even though the promise of IPv6 is one of more security, IPv4 has earned its bones over the past few decades, and we’ve familiarized ourselves with what it can and cannot do. On the other hand, we have little to no experience with IPv6 in the real world. On paper, IPv6 looks great.But, I’m sure the Titanic did too. At best, IPv6 facilitates better security, it doesn’t guarantee it.
