      Traversal Using Relays around NAT (TURN) Extension for IPv6

Abstract

   This document adds IPv6 support to Traversal Using Relays around NAT
   (TURN).  IPv6 support in TURN includes IPv4-to-IPv6, IPv6-to-IPv6,
   and IPv6-to-IPv4 relaying.  This document defines the REQUESTED-
   ADDRESS-FAMILY attribute for TURN.  The REQUESTED-ADDRESS-FAMILY
   attribute allows a client to explicitly request the address type the
   TURN server will allocate (e.g., an IPv4-only node may request the
   TURN server to allocate an IPv6 address).
