Information theft can result from router impersonation (man-in-the-middle attacks), address theft, address spoofing, and remote address resolution cache exhaustion (denial of service attacks). These security breaches can come from malicious or misconfigured users, and can severely disrupt Layer 2 domains and networks in general.
See how IPv6 First Hop Security can mitigate network threats.
The Cisco IPv6 First Hop Security (FHS) solution protects networks by mitigating these types of attacks and misconfigurations errors. It addresses IPv6 link operations vulnerabilities, as well as scalability issues in large Layer2 domains. You gain a strong defense against attack vectors and widely available tools that exploit vulnerabilities.
