Post-Conference Workshop:

Hacking IPv6 Networks – with Hands-on Lab


This course will provide the attendee with in-depth knowledge of IPv6 security, such that the attendee is able to evaluate and mitigate
the security implications of IPv6 in production environments. The attendee 
will be given an in-depth explanation of each topic covered
in this course, and will learn – through hands-on 
exercises – how each feature can be exploited for malicious purposes.

Subsequently, the attendee will be presented with a number of alternatives to mitigate each of the identified vulnerabilities. This course will
employ a range of open source tools to evaluate the security of IPv6 networks, and to reproduce a number of IPv6-based attacks. During the course,
the attendee will perform a large number of exercises in a network 
laboratory (with the assistance of the trainer), such that the concepts and techniques
learned during this course are reinforced with hands-on exercises. The attendee will be required to perform a large number of IPv6 attacks, and to envision mitigation techniques for the corresponding vulnerabilities.


Fernando Gont, Security Consultant, SI6 Networks


This workshop is intended for IT professionals, architects, engineers, developers, and technicians, who want to obtain hands-on exposure with IPv6 Security. The following is required to attend this workshop:

  • Good understanding of the IPv4 protocol suite (IPv4, ICMP, ARP, etc.)
  • Good understanding of network components (routers, firewalls, etc.)
  • Knowledge of basic UNIX/Linux shell commands
  • Knowledge of basic IPv4 Troubleshooting tools, such as: ping, traceroute, and network protocol analyzers (e.g., tcpdump).

We expect participants to have a general understanding of IPv6 concepts such as addressing, extension headers, neighbor discovery etc. If you don’t have this understanding, consider taking the IPv6 Hands-On Class at Digicomp from June 1 to June 3. Here you can find the description. For registration of the Hands-On class go here, you will get CHF 600.00 discount when you book it with a conference ticket.

Lab Setup

In order to participate in the hands-on labs, attendees must provide their own laptop with WLAN and Ethernet interfaces, and a more “current” operating system such as: Windows Vista or newer, MAC OS X 10.7 or newer, or Linux OS. You must have full administrator privileges as you will be installing software for your lab system. You must also be able to copy approximatley 7GB of software from an external USB hard drive to your laptop and have approximately 40GB of additional free space to install multiple OS’s in the virtual platform. You will then have a lab to take home and continue playing. The number of attendees is limited.

Location & Time

This workshop is taking place on Friday June 17, from 9am to 5pm at Digicomp Academy, Limmatstrasse 50, 8005 Zürich.
