ABSTRACT
The article examines IPv6 security. The commonly cited rationale for upgrading to IPv6 is the idea that the newer Internet Protocol provides vastly improved security over IPv4. Emphasis has been given on how conceptions of IPv6 as more secure than IPv4 are somewhat misleading and how implementation indicate that IPv6 can create a less secure enterprise network environment. Proponents of IPv6 usually operate under the assumption that a network would be entirely IPv6 end-to-end. One justification for describing IPv6 as more secure is the elimination of Network Address Translation.
