Introduction

An often cited excuse for the lukewarm attitude towards IPv6 deployment has been "the business side doesn't see the need" or "there is no business case".

In order to bring total alignment within organisations, we realised that not only do we need to train the engineers on how to build the infrastructure and the service, but we also need to help the people that manage these engineers how to think strategically about IPv6 and support their technical guys in IPv6 deployment.

Effective IPv6 deployment is a more than configuring hardware. It requires proper planning, effective project management as well as integration into an organisation's business model and operations.

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the risks involved in not deploying IPv6.
  • List the opportunities that IPv6 will bring to their business.
  • Create a high level IPv6 implementation plan
  • Know what key questions to ask of their technical teams
Pre-requisites  None specifically. Just an eagerness to learn, discuss and share
Modules  IPv6 strategy and planning
Mode of Instruction
  • Presentations
  • Group discussions
  • Interactive exercises
  • Collaborative brainstorming and mindmapping

Introduction

While the network infrastructure ferries packets around the world, it is only as valuable as the services that run atop of it. It is those services that have made the Internet such a powerful tool for learning, collaboration, commerce and entertainment.

In line with our strategy for ensuring there's something for everyone, this module is designed to help systems administrators build dual-stack versions of core network services like DNS, Web , DHCP and Mail.

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to

  1. Provision IPv6 hosts and CPEs with necessary configuration
  2. Configure and verify a dual stacked DNS server
  3. Configure and verify DHCPv6 and SLAAC
  4. Configure and verify a dual stacked web server
  5. Configure and verify a dual stacked mail server
Pre-requisites

 Participants must already be systems admins that have been building and maintaining the respective services in IPv6. Thus we assume

  • Basic understanding of TCP/IP
  • Experience using the Linux/Unix command line interface
  • Understanding and experience with designing and implementing DNS services
  • Understanding and experience with designing and implementing web services
  • Understanding and experience with designing and implementing DHCP services
Modules
  • IPv6 Foundations
  • Building IPv6 Services
Mode of Instruction
  • Presentations
  • Technology demonstration on live equipment
  • Interactive exercises
  • Group discussions
  • Hands-on exercises on our IPv6 testbed

Introduction

As the Internet has become more critical to the way individuals, organisations and nations work, learn, play and do business, it has also become an attractive target for crime, and as such must be protected as a critical resource.

This workshop focuses on the security aspects of IPv6 from the network infrastructure to the services and devices. It is meant for both the networking and system admin professionals.

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to

  1. Describe the security implications and vulnerabilities in IPv6, from the core functionality protocols through the routing protocols to the applications
  2. Identify how to mitigate the security vulnerabilities identified
  3. Secure and verify network infrastructure (transition techniques, routing and key functionality protocols like ND)
  4. Secure and verify IPv6-enabled applications
Pre-requisites
  • Fundamental concepts in network and application security
  • Knowledge with the Linux/unix command line
  • Knowledge of network operating systems like Cisco IOS, Junos and Quagga
Modules
  • IPv6 Foundations
  • IPv6 Security
Mode of Instruction
  • Presentations
  • Technology demonstration on live equipment 
  • Interactive exercises Group discussions 
  • Hands-on exercises on our IPv6 testbed

Joining Instructions for each of our courses are usually sent out by e-mail to invited participants one weeks prior to the course to which they relate. However, this page lists some generic useful information for all courses.

 

Accommodation and refreshments

Our courses are non-residential so please make your own arrangements for the duration of the workshop. During the workshops, light refreshments will be served free of charge. It is however up to attendees to make other arrangements for their meals before and after the event.

 

Course times

Courses generally run from 8.30 to 17.30 each day but often we stay till 18:00 or more!  During the day, there are two short breaks and one long break for lunch and prayers in muslim countries.

Preparing for the workshop

Once invited for the workshop, participants should head to our website, download and review the relavant training materials. Participants to technical workshops are also required to come along with their own laptops which must have the following utilities installed:

  1. Virtualbox - a virtualisation software available freely from http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
  2. A telnet and/or SSH client to use to log into remote equipment. If your operating system does not have these installed, you can download and install the following free ones: 
  3. The AFRINIC whois client freely available from ftp://ftp.afrinic.net/pub/pub/db/whois3_afr.tar.gz.  Please note that although most Linux/unix operation systems have a whois client, these do not support most of the flags used by the AfriNIC whois server.
