IPv6 security risks: How a teenager can hack IPv6 security

In this video interview, recorded at the 2013 RSA Conference, SearchSecurity.com Editorial Events Director Lindsay Jeanloz sat down with Kandek to discuss the ways in which IPv6 vulnerability management presents new challenges, why IPv6 attacks "in the wild" represent a growing concern, and how his son inadvertently used IPv6 to bypass security measures on his home network.
