pfSense 2.1: IPv6 and more

pfSense is a BSD licensed customized distribution of FreeBSD tailored for use as a firewall and router. In addition to being a powerful, flexible firewalling and routing platform, it includes a long list of related features and a package system allowing further expandability without adding bloat and potential security vulnerabilities to the base distribution. This session is being presented by the founders of the pfSense project, Chris Buechler and Scott Ullrich.

At the time of BSDCan 2012, pfSense 2.1 will be newly released. This release adds IPv6 support to nearly every portion of the system, as well as some other smaller changes. This session will cover all of the changes in the 2.1 release, primarily focusing on adding IPv6 support to your existing deployments. With IPv4 address space dwindling and World IPv6 Launch coming up in June, now is the time to bring up IPv6 on your networks. While IPv6 brings new benefits, it also poses new security and connectivity considerations, which will be covered. Attendees will come away with all the latest on the project, as well as knowledge to securely bring their networks onto the 21st century Internet with IPv6.
