Default Beware of IPv6 security goblins, IETF warns

From http://arstechnica.com/business/news...ietf-warns.ars

With World IPv6 Day just six weeks away, security consultants are once again warning that networks transitioning to the Internet's next-generation addressing scheme face serious risks unless they modify their defenses to accommodate the changes.

In a draft proposal filed Tuesday with the Internet Engineering Task Force, a security consultant warned that IPv6 traffic is often able to bypass firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and other security protections. With the majority of end-user devices now speaking the new language by default, their use may have serious unintended consequences.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
