IPv6 Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND)

During the IPv6 Security webinar Eric Vyncke explained the intricate details of IPv6 Security Neighbor Discovery (SEND) and the reasons it will probably never take off.

If you happen to have masochistic tendencies and too much time, please do use SEND; it’s been available on Cisco IOS for a while, and there are “plenty” of host implementations to choose from.

  1. So we have a new feature. But it will probably never be used at all...
