Abstract: IPsec offers not only internet security service such as internet secure communication and authentication but also the safe key exchange and anti-replay attack mechanism. Recently IPsec has been implemented on the various operating systems in IPv6 Network. IPv6 is a new version of IPv4. But there is no existing tool that checks the servers, which provide IPsec services, work properly and provide their network security services well on IPv6 Network. In this paper, we design and implement an Automatic Security Test Engine for IPv6 Network. And we also design rule description language to define security evaluation rule. This system is operated on Windows and UNIX platform. We developed the system using Java and C language.

Keywords: security test; IPv6 network; IP security; agent; packet sniffer; rule interpreter; internet security; IPsec.
