IPv6 Infrastructure Security for Telecom Networks

ITU ASP CoE: IPv6 Infrastructure Security for Telecom Networks

Duration5 days
Level of StudyIntermediate


While IPv6 deployment is picking up its pace in the world, we need to pay close attention to implement and maintain an adequate level of Internet infrastructure security on IPv6.

Fundamental issues related to Internet infrastructure security are exactly the same on IPv4 and IPv6. This workshop covers some introductory topics on Internet infrastructure security before exploring more IPv6 specific threats and vulnerabilities and mitigations techniques. This workshop will include some hands-on workshops so participants can gain practical knowledge that they can use in their networks immediately.

This five-day workshop has been developed as a part of the business management program within the framework of ITU Centre of Excellence for the Asia-Pacific Region (ITU ASP CoE). APNIC collaborated with ITU ASP CoE to hold this workshop.

Target Audience:

This workshop is for technical staff from policy makers, regulators, managers, administrators, and officials dealing with technical aspects of IPv6 Internet infrastructure security issues in network operators.

The course is organised by ITU Asia Pacific Centre of Excellence and it is offered free of charge with support from ToT Academy, the Thailand Ministry of Information and Communication Technology and APNIC.
