I have several back end servers that are IPv6 only. Since they are just used by our front-end servers it doesn't matter that much.

It is nice to see 0 random port scans and SSH brute-force attacks. IPv6 space is so big it helps give some security through obscurity.




Eventually people might be able to infer things that help them reduce the space to scan a lot: https://arxiv.org/abs/1606.04327
