Detailed Outline

Dates and Location


In the years ahead of us, most networks will be dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) for quite some time. This creates new challenges, because both protocols need to be managed and secured separately. Our IPv4 security concepts cannot simply be applied to IPv6 networks. This workshop, designed and presented by Merike Kaeo, a well known expert in the security area with many years of operational experience and author of the Cisco Press book "Designing Network Security" explains similarities and differences in security in IPv4 and IPv6, discusses security models for an IPv6 network and provides deployment guidelines and considerations, especially for dual-stacked networks.

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of what it means to secure an IPv6 network from both a technology and practical deployment perspective.


3 days (9 AM to 4 PM).


Target Audiencetop
This workshop is addressed to Technical Decision makers, Network Analysts, IT-Consultants, Security Consultants, System Administrators, Network- and System Engineers, as well as Manufacturers and Developers, who would like to get a good understanding of how to design security concepts in IPv6 or dual-stacked networks.

The workshop is presented in English.


You need a good understanding of networking in general, of TCP/IP and a basic understanding of IPv6 and IPSec.
