HISTORY         top

       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         top

       tracepath6 requires CAP_NET_RAW capability to be executed. It is safe
       to be used as set-uid root.
