Analysis of IPv6 Security challenges and vulnerability

Abstract: The fast growth of the Internet and technology has a serious impact on our daily life. Almost everything around us has become connected to the Internet computers, appliances, medical devices, airplanes, and mobile devices. This rapid growth of connectivity has helped to develop the IPv6 to cover a numerous number of IP address and provide new services. The deployment of IPv6 provides many enhancements to the Internet infrastructure such as enhancing routing speed, simplicity, quality of service and security. However, it also brings new security concerns and challenges that result from the new transition between IPv4 and IPv6 as long as security issues that specifically related to IPv6. This paper is divided as follows, I introduction II transition issues III IPv6 related security issues IV something to solve the problem V future research VI conclusion.

I. Introduction: TCP/IP considers as a crucial backbone of the Internet infrastructure that heavily depends on IPv4. However, in the last decade IPv4 has been shown some shortages regarding its address space and limited features that indicates the need for a new replacement. Therefore, in the mid-1990s the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) developed IPv6 as a successor version of IPv4 that handles IPv4 address space limitation as long as provide new enhancement and security features. Even though, there are some options that provide security for IPv4…
