In this paper the security mechanisms of IPv6 protocol family are analyzed, among them: SEND, IPv6 Firewall, IPv6 IPSec, SAVI, IPv6 Routing Advertisement Guard, IPv6 Source/Prefix Guard, IPv6 Destination Guard, IPv6 Snooping, DHCPv6 Guard. In the paper it’s analyzed the current state and unresolved questions of research field. The paper is focused on the fact, that in some circumstances, these security mechanisms can create new potential vectors of attack. The results of the paper can used to create the new information security mechanisms in telecommunication systems.
