A security assessment and troubleshooting tool for the IPv6 protocols.
- Add support for GNU Debian/kfreebsd. The toolkit would not build on GNU Debian/kfreebsd before this release.
- Add support for TCP/IPv6 probes. tcp6 can now send TCP/IPv6 packets (“–probe-mode” option), and read the TCP response packets, if any. This can be leveraged for port scans, and miscellaneous measurements.
- The following platforms are supported: FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Linux, and Mac OS.
