Morning Presentation

10:00am – 12:15pm

“Introduction to IPv6”

More and more content consumers are turning to the Internet in their consumption of broadcaster content. This increased use of the Internet has also driven expansion of the Internet. Much of the expansion is occurring in an IPv6 only environment due to the shortage of conventional IPv4 address space.

As a broadcaster, if you are providing content to the Internet, IPv6 migration should be considered to allow for the best Quality of Experience (QoE) to a growing IPv6 content consumer audience without the use of translation schemes. Carriers and Internet service providers utilize translation devices to provide mixed IPv4 and IPv6 interoperability. The various translation schemes are suitable for TCP based applications such as email and web surfing, but can be detrimental to UDP based real-time media used by the broadcaster. In order to provide the best QoE, broadcasters should strive to provide their media content in a native format to IPv6 only users without the need for translation in addition to providing content to the legacy IPv4 users.

This tutorial explores the background of IPv6, IPv6 terminology, and migration approaches to enable broadcasters, as content providers, to evaluate and develop an IPv6 implementation plan. Participants will also learn about the current state of the industry in technology fundamentals and principles and get suggestions on where to obtain further knowledge.

At the conclusion of this tutorial, attendees will have:

  • An awareness of IPv6 networking technology (broadcast focused)
  • A basic understanding of the current state of the industry in technology fundamentals and principles
  • Knowledge to help in making an informed decision about implementing IPv6 in their organizations
  • Suggestions on where to obtain further knowledge and learning

 

Agenda:

1-Intro: Why IPv6 & IPv6 Technology Fundamentals

2-IPv6 Implementation Approaches

3-Building an IPv6 Sandbox

4-IPv6 Implementation Case Study (address allocation focus)

5-Takeaways/References and Further Study

 

 

 

 

Afternoon Presentation

1:30pm – 4:30pm

“IP Network Security Verification” or “Can My Network be Hacked?”

 

 

As broadcast station IP networks have grown and become an integral part of the broadcast technical plant, so have the security threats grown such that network security is an ongoing essential task for the broadcast engineer with IT responsibilities. This tutorial will provide an understanding of IP network security terminology, security plan best practices, and proactive implementation techniques. Practical implementation examples utilizing popular network infrastructure equipment will be provided with a focus upon security configuration verification by use of “White Hat” penetration techniques. Network security is an on-going IT process and should never be considered a one-time setup and forget process.

At the conclusion of this tutorial, attendees will have:

  • An awareness of network security threats (broadcast focused)
  • An awareness of best practice network infrastructure security configurations
  • An understanding of use of penetration testing techniques to verify security provisions
  • Suggestions on where to obtain further knowledge and learning

 

Agenda:

1-Introduction to IP Network Security & Threats

Potential Threats in Detail

Brief Review of IP Network Basics

Structured Security Implementation by Following the OSI Model

2-Network Penetration Verification (network scanning) with nmap

3-Understanding nmap Results With zenmap

4-nmap/zenmap Practical Examples & Demonstration
