Prerequisites for IPv6 Destination Guard

  • You should be familiar with the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery feature. For information about IPv6 neighbor discovery, see the "Implementing IPv6 Addressing and Basic Connectivity" module.

  • You should be familiar with the IPv6 First-Hop Security Binding Table feature. For information, see the "IPv6 First-Hop Security Binding Table" module.

Information About IPv6 Destination Guard

IPv6 Destination Guard Overview

The IPv6 Destination Guard feature blocks data traffic from an unknown source and filters IPv6 traffic based on the destination address. It populates all active destinations into the IPv6 first-hop security binding table, and blocks data traffic when the destination is not identifiied.

How to Configure the IPv6 Destination Guard

Configuring IPv6 Destination Guard

SUMMARY STEPS

1.    enable

2.    configure terminal

3.    ipv6 destination-guard policy policy-name

4.   enforcement {always | stressed}

5.   exit

6.    vlan configuration vlan-list

7.    ipv6 destination-guard attach-policy [policy-name]

8.    exit

9.    show ipv6 destination-guard policy [policy-name]


DETAILED STEPS
  Command or Action Purpose
Step 1
enable


Example:

Device> enable

 

Enables privileged EXEC mode.

  • Enter your password if prompted.
 
Step 2
configure terminal


Example:

Device# configure terminal

 

Enters global configuration mode.

 
Step 3
ipv6 destination-guard policy policy-name


Example:

Device(config)# ipv6 destination-guard policy pol1

 

Defines the destination guard policy name and enters destination-guard configuration mode.

 
Step 4
enforcement {always | stressed}


Example:

Device(config-destguard)# enforcement always

 

Sets the enforcement level for the target address.

 
Step 5
exit


Example:

Device(config-destguard)# exit

 

Exits destination-guard configuration mode and returns to global configuration mode.

 
Step 6
vlan configuration vlan-list


Example:

Device(config)# vlan configuration 1

 

Enters VLAN configuration mode.

 
Step 7
ipv6 destination-guard attach-policy [policy-name]


Example:

Device(config-vlan-config)# ipv6 destination-guard attach-policy pol1

 

Attaches a destination guard policy to a VLAN.

 
Step 8
exit


Example:

Device(config-vlan-config)# end

 

Exits VLAN configuration mode and rreturns to privileged EXEC configuration mode.

 
Step 9
show ipv6 destination-guard policy [policy-name]


Example:

Device# show ipv6 destination-guard policy pol1

 

(Optional) Displays the policy configuration and all interfaces where the policy is applied.

 

Configuration Examples for IPv6 Destination Guard

Example: Configuring an IPv6 Destination Guard Policy

The following example shows how to configure a destination guard policy:

 Router> enable
Router# configure terminal
Router(config)# vlan configuration 300
Router(config-vlan-config)# ipv6 destination-guard attach-policy destination
% Warning - 'ipv6 snooping' should be configured before destination-guard


Router(config-vlan-config)# ipv6 snooping attach-policy ND
Router(config)# vlan configuration 300
Router(config-vlan-config)# ipv6 destination-guard attach-policy destination
Router(config-vlan-config)#

Router# show ipv6 destination-guard policy destination
Destination guard policy Destination: 
  enforcement always
        Target: vlan 300
