RA Guard Support


on the [ipv6-ops] mailing list currently there’s some discussion about RA guard support on switches from different vendors.

Stefan, one of our students (btw: working on a topic similar to this session), quickly put together a preliminary list, based on publicly available information (read: the WWW ;-)). Some of you may find this useful; it can be found here. Furthermore on the list this link was mentioned which seems to provide some info as well (albeit potentially not very up-to-date).

If anyone of you has better/more information pls feel free to share by leaving a comment. The IPv6 security comment will thank you for that 😉




  1. If someone is doing further research on this topic it would be interesting to see which switches can detect and/or drop fragmented Router Advertisements. That is currently a common way of evade RA Guard.
