Secure IPv6 Operation: Lessons learned from 6NET

Performing some of the planned IPv6 security tests had to be skipped due to the unavailability of testing tools operating in IPv6. Also, no large-scale security events were observed during 6NET's operation that would help to access the effectiveness of some of the measures.

However, measures were taken during the phases of design and set up of the 6NET infrastructure to couteract some of the IPv6 threats that could be envisaged. The experience gained from its day-to-day operation and the actual technical problems that had to be addressed helped to build a solid technical base and a deeper understanding of the main security issues.

The document produced can provide some help and guidelines to all parties interested in building a secure and functional IPv6 infrastructure.
