3 & 5 Years Ago (May 2013)

In May 2008 I wrote about asymmetric routing, OSPF across a PIX/ASA firewall and control plane protection.

The most popular article from May 2010 is still Tunneling VPNs and Zone-Based Firewalls with NAT64 and DNS64 in 30 minutes being close second. I also wrote about iSCSI and Moore’s Law and IPv6 myths.

  1. What are your thoughts on IPV6 to IPV6 NAT?

    There are obvious security-related concerns including:

    Giving an attacker the MAC OUI which is useful in network reconissance attacks.

    Enabling Traffic Footprinting in MITM Attacks.

    Hardware failure issues; if you're running a smaller environment and have Load balancer, Firewall, and other rules that tie to a specific specific address, if a NIC fails you may be forced to change the config on a dozen different systems. There's an argument to be made for abstraction using DNS but in most instances that's probably a bad idea.

    Etc Etc.
