IPv6 stable privacy addresses Mar 31 2012 09:34PM

Folks,

We've just posted a revision of our IETF Internet-Draft entitled "A
method for Generating Stable Privacy-Enhanced Addresses with IPv6
Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC)".

The document is available at:
<http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-gont-6man-stable-privacy-addresses-01.tx
t>

The abstract of the document is:

---- cut here ----
This document specifies a method for generating IPv6 Interface
Identifiers to be used with IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration
(SLAAC), such that addresses configured using this method are stable
within each subnet, but the Interface Identifier changes when hosts
move from one network to another. The aforementioned method is meant
to be an alternative to generating Interface Identifiers based on
IEEE identifiers, such that the benefits of stable addresses can be
achieved without sacrificing the privacy of users.
