Five years have past since Marc “van Hauser” Heuse initial talk on IPv6
insecurities 2005 and 2006. New protocol features have been proposed and
implemented since then and ISPs are now slowly starting to deploy IPv6. Few
changes have led to a better security of the protocol, several increase the
risk instead. This talk starts with a brief summary of the issues presented
5 years ago, and... then expands on the new risks especially in multicast
scenarios. As an add-on, discovered implemention security issues in Windows
7/2008, Linux and Cisco will be shown too. Lets hope patches are out until
the conference, if not – they had enough time. All accompanied with GPL’ed
tools to and a library: the new thc-ipv6 package. rewritten, expanded,
Marc “van Hauser” Heuse is performing security research since 1993, having
found vulnerabilities in software like firewalls, DNS servers, SAP
middleware, etc. and is the author of various famous security and pentest
tools like hydra, amap, THC-Scan, secure_delete, SuSEFirewall and many more.
He is performing security research on IPv6 since 2005 and has spoken on many
conferences on this topic since then, among these are the CCC congress
(Germany), Cansecwest (Canada), PacSec (Japan) and many more international
conferences, and additionally has programmed the solely available pentest
toolkit for ipv6: the thc-ipv6 protocol attack suite. In 1995 he founded the
renowned security research group “The Hacker’s Choice”, which was the first
group to e.g. crack A5 GSM in 2006 within a minute. Since 1997 he is working
as a security consultant in the top-5 enterprise consultant companies, since
2007 he is working as an independant security consultant.
