    hey peeps...


    hi first, its my first post here.

    the problem i have or lets say i want to get some knowledge about concerns " IPV6 ICMP Security "
    i know that this is a serious issue since the icmp protocol in IP6 supports way more features than it did in IP4.

    im not sure if this is done pretty easy or if it is a more complex thing. basically i want to know the basics of securing ip6 icmp first.

    ive read some stuff about it and there are some icmp messages which absolutley should be filtered in any case.

    but how to do that ? in the router itself or on the clients ? and if its possible to secure the clients, then how ?


    im on linux mint btw...
