Abstract [en]

This theses project investigates and presents different threats that a network can be exposed to and the common protection techniques that can be applied, with a focus on the network perimeter – specifically the router/firewall between the local area network and the Internet. All Internet connected devices and networks are exposed to and affected by security threats to some degree, hence security is important in almost every type of network. With the constant growth of the Internet the 32-bit addressing scheme ipv4 is proving to be inadequate, and therefore the transition to the 128-bit addressing scheme ipv6 is becoming critical. With ipv6 comes new security threats (while still old threats remain) that requires an understanding of perimeter security. In this thesis we secure a home router and describe these steps to enable home and small business owners to secure their IPv6 network at a relatively low cost.

Abstract [sv]

Detta projekt kommer att undersöka och presentera olika hot som ett IPv6 nätverk kan utsättas för samt de vanligaste skydds mekanismer som används idag, med fokus på nätverkets skallskydd mellan det interna lokala nätet och det yttre publika Internet. I stort sätt all Internet ansluten utrustning och nätverk är exponerad och påverkad i någon grad av säkerhets brister, säkerhet är en viktig del i stort sätt alla nätverk oavsett syfte eller verksamhet. Genom ett ständigt växande Internet börjar de 32-bitar adresser tillhörande IPv4 nätet ta slut, vilket gör behovet av att immigrera till 128-bitar adresser på IPv6 nätet allt mer kritiskt. Med IPv6 kommer nya säkerhetshot, samt att även vissa äldre hot kvarstår, som kräver en förståelse av perimeter skydd. I denna rapport säkrar vi en hemma router och beskriver för varje steg tillvägagångssättet för att hem och små företagare ska få möjlighet att skydda sina IPv6 nätverk till en relativt låg kostnad.
