Title: IPv4/IPv6 Transition Tools

Meeting: Joint Scientific Conference, Science for the praxis
Location and date: Schweinfurth, Njemačka, 17-19.05. 2005.
Keywords: IPv4; IPv6; transition tools; tunneling; encapsulation
With the development of new IPv6 protocol, lots of attention was given to security of communication that is built in protocol itself. IPv6 provides many new possibilities and features and also enables significant improvements in confidentiality of information transmitted through the network. During the IPv4/IPv6 transition period we are using mechanism of encapsulation. To connect isolated IPv6 islands, we must use 6to4 mechanism ; tunnelling of IPv6 packets through IPv4 network. Characteristics of such communications open a lot of security threats ; mainly DDoS attacks on IPv4 and IPv6. This paper analyses mechanisms for transition from Ipv4 to Ipv6. The tools for traffic tunnelling were tested, and some integral transition solutions were given.
