NIST, the “National Institute of Standards and Technology” in the US, has released a draft paper titled “Guidelines for the Secure Deployment of IPv6“. It is a far-ranging paper that looks at IPv6 features one by one and discusses their security ramifications. It also carries some good discussion about IPv6 address allocation and IPv6 transitional options. Recommended read if you are looking to deploy IPv6 in a corporate / educational / governmental environment. Anything bigger than your home, in essence.
