How do we balance security and functionality for end-users? Should IPv6 customer premise equipment(CPE) have a firewall enabled by default? In this lightning talk from Ragnar Anfinsen, learn about efforts within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to create a Best Current Practice document addressing this problem. Ragnar gives an update on where the IETF is on this question, and then solicits input from the audience and the operator community. The current version of the Internet draft, draft-ietf-v6ops-balanced-ipv6-security, can be found in the IETF document repository.
