New edition of our “Hacking IPv6 Networks v4.0” training-course!

In June 20-22, 2017, we will be teaching our renowned “Hacking IPv6 Networks v4.0” training course in San Sebastian, Spain. Registration has already opened!

Course description

This course will provide the attendee with in-depth knowledge of IPv6 security, such that the attendee is able to evaluate and mitigate the security implications of IPv6 in production environments. The attendee will be given an in-depth explanation of each topic covered in this course, and will learn – through hands-on exercises – how each feature can be exploited for malicious purposes. Subsequently, the attendee will be presented with a number of alternatives to mitigate each of the identified vulnerabilities. During the course, the attendee will perform a large number of exercises in a network laboratory (with the assistance of the trainer), such that the concepts and techniques learned during this course are reinforced with hands-on exercises. A range of open source tools will be employed for all the practical exercises, such that the attendee becomes familiar with the tools arsenal that is typically employed for real-world IPv6 security assessments and penetration tests. The attendee will be required to perform a large number of IPv6 attacks, envision mitigation techniques for the corresponding vulnerabilities, and evaluate the aforementioned mitigation techniques with real-world attack tools.

Audience and prerequisites

Network Engineers, Network Administrators, Security Administrators, Penetration Testers, and Security Professionals in general. Participants are required to have:

  • Good understanding of the IPv4 protocol suite (IPv4, ICMP, ARP, etc.)
  • Good understanding of network components (routers, firewalls, etc.)
  • Knowledge of basic UNIX/Linux shell commands
  • Knowledge of basic IPv4 troubleshooting tools, such as: ping, traceroute, and network protocol analyzers
  • Basic knowledge of IPv6 is desirable, but not required.

Course duration, format and materials:

  • Three days, with up to 50% of course time devoted to practical sessions
  • One course book (written by the trainer) that includes all the slides and exercises presented in the course.
  • A copy of the virtual lab employed for the training course.
  • A certificate of completion of the training course.

Other considerations:

  • Coffee breaks and lunch included
  • Training language: English [* Consultar por posibilidad en Español]
  • Students need to bring their own laptop
  • Free admission to EuskalHack Security Congress (Two days Coffee breaks and lunch included)

Please note: Course will be cancelled if the minimum of 8 students do not enroll
