    Lightbulb IPv6- IPv4 Threat Comparison

    I found an interesting read about the different threats found in IPv4 compared to IPv6. This might be worth your time (:

    Sad to hear that MitM attacks will be pretty much as easy as before. ARP really should be revised in my opinion .
    edit: hmm, but arp has nothing to do with network layer 3, so IPv6 has nothing to do with that. How smart of me :P

    My opion is that ip6 adds more cpu power to hack, but with more speed from new tec, they increase security of ip6 like session hijacking will fall victum(on large site) to every house haveing firbe optic links will soon defeat that added secuirty, and that when its implmented it will be hit with a large number of hacks, becuase its being broadcast openly, and then slow dwindle down.
    The thing i'm worryed about most is the large amount of ip address, i used 56.45.45.2 for my internal lan for added security, but it would only take a short amount of time to find, were as the ip6 would take a long time.

    There are alot of people out there that like changles

    peace
