Every user that joins a wireless access network to connect to the Internet expects to receive a secure and reliable service. The process of discovering other nodes on the same link as well as the recovery of routing information is known as Neighbour Discovery Protocol (NDP)  and until recently little attempt was made to protect it from misuse and attacks. The recently suggested protection methods for the routing mechanism of an IPv6 access network are not extensively tested and security vulnerabilities exist that can jeopardise the security of the provided services or even the integrity of the communicated information. By implementing the protocols for the protection of the router and neighbour discovery the research carried out identifies the potential vulnerabilities and suggests ways to protect against them.
