NSA publishes IPv6 Security Guidance
The Department of Defense will incrementally transition from IPv4 to IPv6 over the next few years and many DoD networks will be dual-stacked.
IPv6 Security Guidance highlights how several security issues can surface in networks that are new to IPv6, or in early phases of the IPv6 transition. The National Security Agency (NSA) published guidance to help Department of Defense (DoD) and other system administrators identify and mitigate security issues associated with a transition to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Networks new to IPv6 lack maturity in IPv6 configurations and tools, and dual-stacked networks, which run on IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously, have an increased attack surface.
