Because of the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 and certain differences between both IP versions, there are quite some possible security issues. In this paper the authors try to find how the security of networks is affected by this transition. For this purpose they made a questionnaire to inquire about the general status of the transition in companies which provide services connected to networks (ISPs, security providers, and etcetera). Secondly they used practical tests on production networks in order to get an idea about the IPv6 networks in the wild.
