IPv6 has appeared for solving the address exhaustion of IPv4 and for guaranteeing the problems of security and QoS. It occurs the unexpected new attacks of IPv6 as well as the existing attacks of IPv4 because of the increasing address space to 128bits and the address hierarchies for efficient network management and additions of the new messages between nodes and routers like neighbor discovery and auto address configuration for the various comfortable services. For the successful transition from IPv4 to IPv6, we should get the secure compatibility between IPv4 hosts or routers working based on secure and systematic policy and IPv6. Network manager should design security technologies for efficient management in IPv4/IPv6 co-existence network and IPv6 network and security management framework designation. In this paper, we inspected the characteristics of IPv4 and IPv6, study on security requirement for efficient security management of various attacks, protocol, service in IPv4/IPv6 co-existence and IPv6 network, and finally suggest solution about security vulnerability of IPv6 network in considering of MCGA (Modified Cryptographically Generated Address).
