Does your cloud-access security broker support IPv6? It should.

Network World

Cloud access security brokers ( CASB ) insert security between enterprises and their cloud services by providing visibility and access control, but IPv6 could be causing a dangerous blind spot. That’s because CASBs might not support IPv6, which could be in wide corporate use even in enterprises that choose IPv4 as their preferred protocol.

IPv6 Primer for Deployments

Scott Lowe

This is a liveblog of the OpenStack Summit Sydney session titled “IPv6 Primer for Deployments”, led by Trent Lloyd from Canonical. IPv6 is a topic with which I know I need to get more familiar, so attending this session seemed like a reasonable approach. IPv6 was released in 1980, and uses 32-bit address (with a total address space of around 4 billion). IPv6 was released in 1998, and uses 128-bit addresses (for a theoretical total address space of 3.4

Interop Liveblog: IPv6 Microsegmentation

Scott Lowe

This session was titled “IPv6 Microsegmentation,” and the speaker was Ivan Pepelnjak. The session starts with a discussion of the problems found in Layer 2 IPv6 networks. Note that some of these attacks are also common to IPv4 and are not necessarily unique to IPv6. The challenge with some of these fixes is that IPv6’s extension headers—which come before TCP or UDP header—can sometimes be manipulated to bypass such protections. Can we use shared Layer 3 IPv6 subnets?
