IPv6 Alias Resolution
MetadataShow full item record
Too-Big_Trick library provides an IP6 fingerprinting technique to assist in router-level alias resolution by comparing fragment identification numbers received from targeted router interfaces. An ICMP6 Too Big message is sent invoking source router fragmentation iliciting a unique identifier common to all interfaces of a router. Received fragmentation identification numbers are compared to determine if provided IP6 addresses are aliases. We have implemented TBT in a Python library and are making it available here under an MIT license. Feedback and bugfixes welcome. tbt.py
