HISTORY

       This program has long history. Author of traceroute is Van Jacobson and it first appeared
       in 1988. This clone is based on a port of traceroute to IPv6 published in NRL IPv6
       distribution in 1996. In turn, it was ported to Linux by Pedro Roque. After this it was
       kept in sync by Alexey Kuznetsov <kuznet@ms2.inr.ac.ru>. And eventually entered iputils
       package.

SECURITY

       traceroute6 requires CAP_NET_RAW capability to be executed. It is safe to be used as
       set-uid root.

AVAILABILITY

       traceroute6 is part of iputils package.
