In networking, IP as we call it is generally Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the replacement for IP running in today’s networks. 23 years after the initial release of IPv6 we observe that many networks are not formally implementing IPv6, however, most modern desktop/server OS’s have had IPv6 enabled for 8+ years. That means many IT departments and technologists don’t understand that IPv6 is in fact all over their networks nor what the potential implications are.
This session will cover a few IPv6 basics and then dive into a real-world demonstration accessing a live network and the recon/exploit of an “IPv4 only” network using IPv6.
Plan to attend at 7pm CT on February 24th.

The mid-September Fall TXv6TF Summit agenda is starting to take shape. Today, TXv6TF announced that there will be a 3-hour hands on lab at the end of the 2nd day of the summit (September 15, 2011). This lab requires no prior experience with IPv6 and will be consist of the following agenda:
- Short lecture – IPv6 addressing
- Lab 1 – Configure network device with IPv6 SLAAC address
- Lab 2 – Configure network device with IPv6 static address
- Lab 3 – Configure network device for basic IPv6 routing between VLANs
- Lab 4 – Configure network device for OSPFv3
The lab will be lead by Jeff Carrell and is free, but advanced registration is required and seats are limited. Each participant must bring a laptop with any operating system that has VPN (PPTP) and telnet capability in order to participate in these labs.
Stan Barber, Chair of TXv6TF, will be a speaker at the 2011 TTVN Annual Conference at Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas. His topic is Real IPv6 in a Multi-Vendor World and will cover issues that come up when adding IPv6 to multi-vendor enterprise networks.
