So I'm trying to write a software at packet filtering area to manage the security of ipv6 routing header (type 0) , but i'm not sure where to get started, Or what network simulation tools to use .


I would suggest taking a look at Scapy which, while not the complete answer will allow you to capture, analyse, create and inject packets, including malformed packets if required.

  • Free, Gratis & Open Source.
  • Thanks for the answer, but is there anything can be used on a windows os. – Ahmed Shihab Oct 8 '17 at 13:50
  • And what I'm looking for is simulation (can be used with a simulated network ). – Ahmed Shihab Oct 8 '17 at 13:54
  • @AhmedShihab - I use it on windows all of the time! I haven't tried it on a simulated network but if it is a good simulation I wouldn't be surprised if it worked. – Steve Barnes Oct 8 '17 at 17:35
  • Scapy was very useful, thank you. – Ahmed Shihab Oct 17 '17 at 21:57


Why don't try Wireshark? A must have for analyzing packets including IPV6 packets
