Advanced IPv6 Security is a follow-up to SI6 Networks’ Hacking IPv6 Networks flagship course, covering the
most advanced IPv6 attack and defense techniques. This course assumes knowledge of the topics covered
by the course Hacking IPv6 Networks v6.0 as a starting-point, and explores the most advanced IPv6 attack
and defense techniques through hands-on exercises. 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 the course are reinforced with hands-on exercises. The training course is carried
out by Fernando Gont, a world-renowned IPv6 security expert.
