I am an undergraduate student where I decided to develop a firmware that would eliminate the security vulnerabilities that exist within the current technologies used. such as tunneling, translation and dual stack.
To do this I need to understand the packet transporting/routing differences between IPv4 and IPv6 in-order to provide a viable solution. But I couldnt find any resource that would compare these two protocols via diagrams and structures. I was hoping if I could assistance with some resources that i could use to better understand the differences of these two protocols.
I would like to first focus on the differences in IPsec.
- i know that IPsec is added to the Packet on the Network layer of the OSI model. But how does the IPv4 and IPv6 differ from one another when it comes to IPsec?
- how is the security info is added to both of these at start and removed from at the destination?
