IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol based OS fingerprinting


Many different parameters impact the management of a device (nature, IP address...), and the Operating System (OS) it runs is one of them. With IPv6 being deployed, many new device, all different, will be able to obtain an IP address and acces the network. Knowing the OS these devices are running is very important in order to manage them efficiently. This is performed with OS Fingerprinting. In this report, we present a study we performed on the subject. We present our methodology and the results observed, leading to the definition of fingerprints for some IPv6 stacks and thus Operating Systems.
