Review paper on neighbour discovery protocol in IPv6 link-local network

Review paper on neighbour discovery protocol in IPv6 link-local network Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) signifies the latest version of IP, the ‘Internet Protocol’. The communication protocol allocates an identification, as well as a location system of computers on the network. One of the key protocols in IPv6 is the neighbour discovery protocol (NDP). The NDP covers many functions including the discovery of nodes on a similar link, the detection of addresses that are duplicate, and the detection of routers. Due to the importance of NDP, it makes it susceptible to several attacks including denial of service (DoS); ‘Denial of Service’ attack. Many mechanisms proposed to secure NDP. However, these mechanisms are still vulnerable. This paper reviews the significance of NDP and presents the advantage and disadvantage of each proposed mechanisms.

Abstract

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) signifies the latest version of IP, the ‘Internet Protocol’. The communication protocol allocates an identification, as well as a location system of computers on the network. One of the key protocols in IPv6 is the neighbour discovery protocol (NDP). The NDP covers many functions including the discovery of nodes on a similar link, the detection of addresses that are duplicate, and the detection of routers. Due to the importance of NDP, it makes it susceptible to several attacks including denial of service (DoS); ‘Denial of Service’ attack. Many mechanisms proposed to secure NDP. However, these mechanisms are still vulnerable. This paper reviews the significance of NDP and presents the advantage and disadvantage of each proposed mechanisms. Moreover, the SeND mechanism was implemented and the results were compared with the original NDP. This paper discusses the requirements of features of the proposed mechanism in securing the IPv6 NDP processes.
