I know how to configure iptables (IPv4) host-based firewall using Netfilter. How do I configure ip6tables for basic filtering IPv6 packets?

Q. IPv4 by default protect internal host using RFC 1918 private IP address. But IPv6 offers direct global address which result into exposing all internal hosts as well. How do I create default IPv6 firewall to drop all incoming (except ping6 request) connection and only allow outgoing requests from Linux workstation?
