Technical Summary

   Knowledge and experience on how to operate IPv4 networks securely is
   available: whether it is the Internet or an enterprise internal
   network.  However, IPv6 presents some new security challenges.  RFC
   4942 describes the security issues in the protocol, but network
   managers also need a more practical, operations-minded document to
   enumerate advantages and/or disadvantages of certain choices.

   This document analyzes the operational security issues associated
   with several types of network and proposes technical and procedural
   mitigation techniques.  This document is only applicable to managed
   networks, such as enterprise networks.  The recommendations in this
   document are not applicable to residential user cases, even in cases
   where a Service Provider may be managing the home gateway.
