I'm playing a bit with NDPMon - IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol Monitor, now at version 1.4.0. Sofar, after configuring it in the right configuration file it likes one part of the home network (the wired part). I'm looking at it both from the viewpoint of playing with IPv6 and from the viewpoint of network security: can I use this to trace users of a network. In a large network like the one at work I could imagine ndpmon doing for IPv6 what arpwatch does for IPv4. Combine that with logs from the switches for tracing ethernet addresses and I see possibilities for a big, usable and at the same time manageable and secure network.
