Experts admit that blocking IPv6 traffic is a temporary solution because a growing number of your customers and business partners will be supporting IPv6. "If you're not prepared for IPv6, then the prudent thing to do is not to allow it into your network," LeMaster says. "But you shouldn't be blocking all IPv6 traffic for the next five years. You should only block it until you have a policy and understand the threats." Long term, the better solution is to start running IPv6 so you can gain visibility into your IPv6 traffic and experience with the new protocol, experts say.
