How to Find and Measure IPv6 Traffic on Your Network

February 20, 2013 at 5:03 am PST

My last post was all about finding IPv6 prefixes on the IPv6 Internet. I think the next natural question is “What about IPv6 traffic?” or more specifically, “What about IPv6 traffic on my network?” In this post, I’ll talk about some network tools, or instrumentation, that can be used to find and measure IPv6 traffic that is out on your network. Network instrumentation is going to be important whether you plan to integrate IPv6 into your network or not. “What?” you might ask, “why is instrumenting my network to detect IPv6 important if I’m not going to run IPv6 in my network?”

Cisco Live London 2013: IPv6 Security Lab Recap

Last week my colleagues and I were excited to deliver a 4-hour lab on IPv6 Security at Cisco Live London 2013. The training enabled students to correctly identify, classify, and deter or prevent the nefarious IPv6-specific behaviors. They did so by configuring network threat defense, countermeasures, and controls that were implemented and deployed on infrastructure devices as well as validate their effectiveness. Some of the nefarious behaviors included IPv6 spoofing, using IPv6 in IPv4 tunneling to bypass, and DDoS using IPv6 packets. This IPv6 security training was first delivered at Cisco Live USA 2012, where 19 students participated in the class. At Cisco Live London, we welcomed 21 Cisco Customers, giving them access to our lab-hosted equipment to practice and complete tasks covered during class. What follows are some key observations about our training in London as compared to our training in the U.S.: Read More »

ginaBy Gina Nienaber, Marketing Manager, Service Provider (SP) Marketing Routing and Switching

The theme of this year’s V6 World Congress, happening in Paris, March 19-22, is “Going Mobile.” With the advent of the Internet of Everything and the proliferation of mobile devices well underway, there will be a lot to talk about. And this year, you will have the unique opportunity to hear from leading service providers, including Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile, who have already made the transition to IPv6 in their mobile networks.

Now that IPv6 has solidly claimed the role as the connective protocol of the future, this event is expected to attract a record number of attendees from around the world. As a sponsor, Cisco will have a strong presence on the three-day agenda and is also hosting a technical tutorial, which will give you the chance to meet one-on-one with Cisco technology experts.

Here is the current list of Cisco speakers (and the 3-day agenda): Read More »
