IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering

IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering

The IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering feature allows you to control IPv6 traffic that might contain hop-by-hop extension headers. You can configure an access control list (ACL) to deny all hop-by-hop traffic or to selectively permit traffic based on protocol.

Finding Feature Information

Your software release may not support all the features documented in this module. For the latest caveats and feature information, see Bug Search Tool and the release notes for your platform and software release. To find information about the features documented in this module, and to see a list of the releases in which each feature is supported, see the feature information table at the end of this module.

Information About IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering

ACLs and Traffic Forwarding

IPv6 access control lists (ACLs) determine what traffic is blocked and what traffic is forwarded at device interfaces. ACLs allow filtering based on source and destination addresses, inbound and outbound to a specific interface. Use the ipv6 access-list command to define an IPv6 ACL, and the deny and permit commands to configure its conditions.

The IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering feature implements RFC 2460 to support traffic filtering in any upper-layer protocol type.

    2.    configure terminal

    3.    ipv6 access-list access-list-name

    4.    permit protocol {source-ipv6-prefix/prefix-length | any | host source-ipv6-address | auth} [operator [port-number]] {destination-ipv6-prefix/prefix-length | any | host destination-ipv6-address | auth} [operator [port-number]] [dest-option-type [header-number | header-type]] [dscp value] [flow-label value] [fragments] [hbh] [log] [log-input] [mobility] [mobility-type [mh-number | mh-type]] [reflect name [timeout value]] [routing] [routing-type routing-number] [sequence value] [time-range name]

DETAILED STEPS
     Command or ActionPurpose
    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 access-list access-list-name


    Example:
    Device(config)# ipv6 access-list hbh-acl
     

    Defines an IPv6 ACL and enters IPv6 access list configuration mode.

     
    Step 4 permit protocol {source-ipv6-prefix/prefix-length | any | host source-ipv6-address | auth} [operator [port-number]] {destination-ipv6-prefix/prefix-length | any | host destination-ipv6-address | auth} [operator [port-number]] [dest-option-type [header-number | header-type]] [dscp value] [flow-label value] [fragments] [hbh] [log] [log-input] [mobility] [mobility-type [mh-number | mh-type]] [reflect name [timeout value]] [routing] [routing-type routing-number] [sequence value] [time-range name]

    Example:
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit icmp any any dest-option-type
    
     

    Sets permit conditions for the IPv6 ACL.

     
    Step 5 deny protocol {source-ipv6-prefix/prefix-length | any | host source-ipv6-address | auth} [operator [port-number]] {destination-ipv6-prefix/prefix-length | any | host destination-ipv6-address | auth} [operator [port-number]] [dest-option-type [header-number | header-type]] [dscp value] [flow-label value] [fragments] [hbh] [log] [log-input] [mobility] [mobility-type [mh-number | mh-type]] [routing] [routing-type routing-number] [sequence value] [time-range name] [undetermined-transport]


    Example:
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# deny icmp any any dest-option-type
    
     

    Sets deny conditions for the IPv6 ACL.

     
    Step 6end


    Example:
    Device (config-ipv6-acl)# end 
     

    Returns to privileged EXEC configuration mode.

     

    Configuration Example for IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering

    Example: IPv6 ACL Extensions for Hop by Hop Filtering

    Device(config)# ipv6 access-list hbh_acl
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit tcp any any hbh
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit tcp any any
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit udp any any
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit udp any any hbh
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit hbh any any
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# permit any any
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# hardware statistics
    Device(config-ipv6-acl)# exit
    
    ! Assign an IP address and add the ACL on the interface.
    
    Device(config)# interface FastEthernet3/1
    Device(config-if)# ipv6 address 1001::1/64
    Device(config-if)# ipv6 traffic-filter hbh_acl in
    Device(config-if)# exit
    Device(config)# exit
    Device# clear counters
    Clear "show interface" counters on all interfaces [confirm]
    Device# 
    
    ! Verify the configurations.
    
    Device# show running-config interface FastEthernet3/1
    
    Building configuration...
    
    Current configuration : 114 bytes
    !
    interface FastEthernet3/1
    no switchport
    ipv6 address 1001::1/64
    ipv6 traffic-filter hbh_acl
    end
