Abstract

IP version 6 is a new version of the Internet Protocol, designed as the successor to IP version 4(IPv4). IPv6 is now a deployment phase. For Security of IPv6 network, IPsec(IP Security) is designed by IPsec Working Group of IETF. IPsec(IP Security) offers not only Internet security service such as Internet secure communication and authentication but also the safe key exchange and anti-replay attack mechanism. Recently, Several Project implement IPv6 IPsec on the various Operating Systems. But there is no existing tool that checks the servers, which provide IPsec services, work properly and provide their network security services well. In this paper, we design and implement an automatic security evaluation system for IPv6 network. This system is operated on Windows and UNIX platform and operated on IPv6 network. We developed the system using Java and C language.
