JUNOS with enhanced services / IPv6 / security processing

As stated here, Junos with enhanced services applies no security Processing to IPv6 Packets.

Therefore it is not possible to filter host-inbound or forwarded IPv6 traffic.


Will this get fixed  in the foreseeable future?

Re: JUNOS with enhanced services / IPv6 / security processing

Branch SRX and J-Series JUNOS Software has the option to bypass flow processing for inet6
This is done by configuring packet-based forwarding for inet6 family.


security {
    forwarding-options {
        family {
            inet6 {
                mode packet-based;


If this worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit.
A kudo would be cool if you think I earned it.
