Internet Protocol (IP) version 6 (IPv6) is the designated successor for the current IP version 4 and carries several performance and security advantages over earlier versions. Internet Security Systems' (ISS) Dynamic Threat Protection platform is the first and only security platform to provide sophisticated, automated protection for customers against threats associated with emergent IPv6 technology. ISS RealSecure Network 7.0 intrusion protection application and its Proventia protection appliances support several IPv6 standards and tunneling mechanisms. According to ISS, hackers are already actively taking advantage of new IPv6 services, and turning this lack of understanding about IPv6 to their own advantage. ISS has written an IPv6 white paper that discusses the security implications of IPv6 and the ISS solutions that enable administrators to protect against attacks, intrusions and backdoors that take specific advantage of the protocol. The common protection engine is based on protocol analysis and what ISS claims to be the most expensive security knowledge-base in existence. It has more than 95 individual protocol decodes and more than 1,700 pattern-matching algorithms, providing the most accurate detection necessary to prevent attacks.
