IPv6 Neighbor Discovery

Based on Linux Kernel 2.6.34

Authored by Sameer Seth, M. Ajaykumar

Extending the work done in the authors’ recent book, TCP/IP Architecture, Design, and Implementation in Linux, this concise and practical guide covers the multiple functionalities of IPv6 Neighbor Discovery for Linux kernel 2.6.34, including address resolution using Neighbor Solicitation and Neighbor Advertisement as well as the correct formatting for Neighbor Solicitation and Neighbor Advertisement. Developers, aspirants, and students seeking to understand the implementation of the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery address resolution feature in Linux in comparison with the equivalent protocol in IPv4 will find this to be an essential reference.
