‘Cybercrime – Transition Internet Protocol IPv4 to IPv6’ was the subject of a CEPOL course held in The Hague, The Netherlands from 17 – 18 December 2012.  The course was hosted at the European Cybercrime Centre at Europol’s headquarters.

The aim of the course was to provide the participants with an understanding of the underlying issues and technical concepts related to the transition from the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) to the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Thirty-eight people from 16 European Union Member States and three participants from Candidate Countries participated in this course. The participants of this course came from Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom, Croatia, Iceland and Turkey. Experts from the European Cybercrime Centre at Europol also participated.

Given that the background and technical competencies of the course participants were different, the course curriculum attempted to strike a balance between theoretical and practical sessions in order to provide all participants with an overall perspective of the issue being discussed. The theory combined with technical exercises enriched the discussion and interaction between the students and the trainers giving to the event an operational perspective on how to deal with new forms of cyber-investigations.

CEPOL engaged three experts from RIPE NCC assist in the delivery of the course. This joint action underlines the need for public-private partnerships which are key in the fight against cybercrime.

Cybercrime is considered a high priority at the international level and CEPOL will play a major role in capacity building, and will support the European Cybercrime Centre in this arena.
