Fast IPv6 Network Periphery Discovery and Security Implications

We introduce a novel IPv6 network scanning technique and develop a fast network scanner *XMap* to evaluate it, harvesting *52M* devices. We leverage *XMap* to measure the unintended exposed IPv6 services and uncover a common IPv6 routing loop vulnerability and receive 109 CNVD/CVE.

XMap: The Internet Scanner

XMap is a fast network scanner designed for performing Internet-wide IPv6 & IPv4 network research scanning.
