your IPv6 deployment, various unexplained addressing and access issues have
started to occur, some of the issues could be:
clients received addresses, then lost them, then received them again, now
clients can't communicate.
was being monitored on a specific address and all of a sudden it stopped, now
it's on a different address.
clients have an address, can access services on the local network, but cannot
communicate to the Internet.
presentation provides a series of mini-studies about IPv6 Neighbor Discovery
Protocol to understand where autoconfiguration functions may be present in the
network, why they may or may not be desired, and what could be configured in
the network infrastructure accordingly.
understanding of what is "running on the network", what is configured
in the network infrastructure (routers and/or DHCPv6 services), what are the
desired operational parameters, and what are the defined functions of the IPv6
standards, are all required to have a successful IPv6 deployment.
presentation will feature a live IPv6 network, where all of these configuration
(and misconfiguration) options will be demonstrated on routers, servers, and

Summary: In the past 18 months, a series of highly sophisticated and
targeted cyber-attacks across the globe have revealed a seismic shift in the
threat landscape. With both private and public-sector organizations, targeted
attacks are becoming increasingly advanced and audacious. In March of last year
RSA suffered a significant and highly publicized cyber-attack. This
presentation will detail the elements of an attack, the lessons learned by RSA,
and suggested best practices for continuing to combat Advanced Persistent
