Private vs. Public Addressing

by David (Dave) Forrest

We will be examining questions about the contrasting IPv4 use of NAT when you "...put up IPv6 devices with a PUBLICLY ADDRESSABLE IF (an interface which is addressed by an IP)".

So, .. where is the security? Are we to assume a firewall is present with EVERY public connection?

Or, is everything behind a global VPN with central 'exit' points?”
