The Secure Way to IPv6 – Use Your Proxy!

When asked about IPv6, many companies are aware that they must do something, but are not sure what is the best way to approach IPv6. In my talks with customers, I found that the unfamiliarity with IPv6 is one of the biggest obstacles. So, to gain experience with IPv6, there are several paths to go down, from the inside-out approach (start within an internal area and work outwards) to the outside-in (work from the internet towards the internal ne…

Why IT Standardization?

…vices, and netflow information. As for interoperability — it’s easier to provide end-to-end features like IPv6, QoS, traffic security analysis, and application quality monitoring, if everything carrying traffic has the same feature sets and offers the same set of traffic monitoring and controlling features. It’s also more scalable, in two ways. An architecture of fewer parts is less complex, and can grow the design by adding more capa…

Fosdem 2015: a status update

…e wanted to report on the evolution of the traffic we measured. First the bad news: due to the increased use of IPv6 we have less accurate data. This is because while IPv4 uses a unique MAC address which we can use to count the number of clients, IPv6 uses ephemeral addresses, and one physical device can use multiple global IPv6 addresses. In fact we noticed one client using more than 100 global IPv6 addresses over a period of 240 seconds. Why th…
