Abstract [en]

It has previously been assumed that the size of anIPv6 network would make it impossible to scan the network forvulnerable hosts. Recent work has shown this to be false, andseveral methods for scanning IPv6 networks have been suggested.However, most of these are based on external information likeDNS, or pattern inference which requires large amounts of knownIP addresses. In this paper, DeHCP, a novel approach based ondelimiting IP ranges with closely clustered hosts, is presentedand compared to three previously known scanning methods. Themethod is shown to work in an experimental setting with resultscomparable to that of the previously suggested methods, and isalso shown to have the advantage of not being limited to a specificprotocol or probing method. Finally we show that the scan canbe executed across multiple VLANs.
