We see security as a major stumbling block in enterprise migrations from IPv4 to IPv6. For starters, the code is mostly untested, and too few of our current network security products support IPv6, something the black hat community is banking on. And there’s widespread confusion--the idea that some characteristics of IPv6 make it intrinsically
more secure than IPv4 is, sadly, just plain false, and information security teams are largely in the dark on how to help their companies safely transition.
