Is IPv6 more Secure than IPv4? Or Less?

Scott Hogg recently (in his post “Holding IPv6 Neighbor Discovery to a Higher Standard of Security“) gave the following answer:

“The security of IPv4 is roughly equivalent to IPv6. So why do we expect more from IPv6?”

While I highly value Scott’s IPv6 expertise – not least because I learned a lot about IPv6 security from the book on the topic he wrote together with Eric Vyncke – I strongly disagree with his statement, mainly with the first part. In this post I will lay out why I think that IPv6 is actually less secure than IPv4.

ERNW@HAXPO/HITB 2015

Last week we enjoyed quite a wonderful HAXPO exhibition and HITB conference in Amsterdam. A number of great talks could be heard at the main HITB conference such as “Bootkit via SMS: 4G Access Level Security Assessment” or “Stegosploit: Hacking with Pictures“. And not only that: there were also several engaging hands-on workshops.

Apart from the main conference, there was the HAXPO – a hacker exhibition. At this exhibition you could connect with people from different companies, get a lot of merchandise, and also listen to several briefings on security and its philosophy. Fortunately, we had the pleasure to present two of these briefings and maybe you tested your web application skills at the ERNW booth.

IPv6 & Complexity

IPv6 is often called a “complex protocol”, not least by myself (for example in my keynote to the IPv6 Security Summit 2014). In this post I want to have a quick look at three questions:

– Can IPv6 be considered a “complex protocol”?
– Is it “more complex” than IPv4?
– Can we expect IPv6 networks to be “complex networks”?
