An Android (2.3.7) mobile will automatically configure an IPv6 address (SLAAC), when it receives a Route Advertisement (RA) packet. Your mobile device is ready for the next generation Internet, as it is IPv6 ready and enabled by default. One little concern though is that you’re traceable around the globe, because the Privacy Extension is turned off. Traceable means that someone that knows your mobile network address (MAC address), can track you down every time you are IPv6 connected. Without the Privacy Extension (RFC 4941) turned on the last 64 bits of the 128 bits IPv6 address holds your unique mobile network address. Someone to whom you connect regularly (Google, Hotmail, IPv6Security 😉 ) could filter on the last part of the address in log files, and plot where you where.

Thanks to the App IPv6Config (root required) from Rene Meyrhofer, you can turn the Privacy Extension option on.  If you care about privacy this may be an app for you.

IPv6 on Android


Use these third party tools to perform basic #IPv6 operations. From converting IPv4 addresses to 128-bit notation, to looking IPv6 WHOIS lookups.

IPv4 to IPv6 Mapper Maps a valid IPv4 address into IPv6 address notation
IPv6 CIDR to Range Tool Information about a range of IPv6 addresses using CIDR notation
Range to IPv6 CIDR Tool Information about a given range of IPv6 addresses, using CIDR notation
IPv6 Compressor Tool Removes empty octects from an expanded IPv6 address
IPv6 Expander Tool Expands a compressed IPv6 address into its full 128-bit notation
IPv6 WHOIS Lookup Tool A complete set of IPv6 address information
Local IPv6 Range Generator Generates global IDs, subnet IDs, and the valid IPv6 range of addresses



Do you wonder what you download/upload speed it over IPv6?
You can check your actual speed at the IPv6-Speedtest website.


If your are working to get IPv6 connected to the internet and want to test your setup, than have a look at the following test site:

Stop untill you get a 10/10 😉


If you understand the way things work with IPv6, it becomes clear that it should be fairly easy to fool around with it. Searching around on the internet learned me that there are indeed proof of concept codes available to play around with.

All credits to the guys from The Hackers Choice, for both the explanation and code (V2.3).
