So,still assuming the fact that attackers will use the same "traditional
ipv4" methods to alter the correct functioning over a network?...Well,
maybe. Toda's IPv6 expertise for some network andmins and security
experts is minimal. So most trainning and understanding before
implementing its a good idea.

For example, the RA-Guard method has a significant vulnerability: It's
not designed to identify a "complex" IPv6-many extension headers formed
packet (F. Gont - 6Networks). Some other security oriented mechanisms
may fail because of the low IPv6 compliance.
