I would like to know what IDS/IPS feature or appliance is compatible with a native IPv6 network.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have this problem too.

The Cisco IPS has the atomic IPv6 engine which is currently limited to about 7 signatures.

Cisco IPS is also able to montor IPv4 packets tunneled inside of IPv6 packets.

So with current versions the support of native IPv6 monitoring is limited.

You would need to contact your Cisco Sale Representative for any information about future IPS versions and support for IPv6.
