Last year, we covered some weird findings from Google on IPv6 usage. Mainly that it spikes on weekends and noticeably falls during the week. It’s a little weird, although I’m sure it has something to do with more personal device usage outside of work hours.
But IPv6 still has some mysteries for those that are inclined to look. One of the big problems is scanning. IPv4 has just under 4.3 billion possible addresses. IPv6 was designed to account for a more modern Internet, with 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,
That’s why Marc Newlin and Chris Grayson created ipv666, designed to identify addresses globally and in targeted networks. Just as interesting as the tool is some of the research that went into it. Make sure you check out Chris’ blog post on it, and the coverage on Duo’s Decipherer blog.
