Survey on Securing IPv6 Infrastructure

Due to shortage of address spaces in IPv4 next version IPv6 has been introduced.Ipv6 provides many better facilities than IPv4 such as more security, larger address spaces, network auto configuration and better quality services. IPv6 nodes uses the Neighbor Discovery (ND) protocol to discover other nodes on the link, to determine their link-layer addresses, to find routers, to detect duplicate address, and to maintain reach ability information but this ND is vulnerable to various attacks when it is not secured such as Router Solicitation (RS), Neighbor Solicitation (NS), Router Advertisement (RA), Neighbor Advertisement (NA), DoS attack, Replay attack and DAD attack.
