Why this tool?

Chiron is a security assessment framework for IPv6. It provides several modules including an IPv6 scanner, IPv6 Local Link, IPv4-to-IPv6 proxy, IPv6 attack module, and IPv6 proxy. These modules help to perform an assessment, like a penetration test.

The tool uses IPv6 extension headers to create a headers chain. This may allow evading security devices like IDS, IPS, and firewalls. Due to the flexibility of the framework, the tool can also be used to perform fuzzing of the IPv6 stack of a device.

How it works

Chiron is written in Python and using Scapy to create its traffic. The sniffer in Chiron does not use the OS stack, but its own implementation.

Usage and audience

Chiron is commonly used for network analysis, network scanning, or network security monitoring. Target users for this tool are network administrators and pentesters.

Definitions

IPv6 extension header
IPv6 extension headers allow providing optional Internet Layer information. These headers are placed between a fixed header and the upper-layer protocol header. By using a Next Header field, a headers chain can be created. It is a flexible method to customize IPv6 packets.
