             Discovering Provisioning Domain Names and Data
             draft-bruneau-intarea-provisioning-domains-02

Abstract

   An increasing number of hosts and networks are connected to the
   Internet through multiple interfaces, some of which may provide
   multiple ways to access the internet by the mean of multiple IPv6
   prefix configurations.

   This document describes a way for hosts to retrieve additional
   information about their network access characteristics.  The set of
   configuration items required to access the Internet is called a
   Provisioning Domain (PvD) and is identified by a Fully Qualified
   Domain Name (FQDN).  This identifier, retrieved using a new Router
   Advertisement (RA) option, is associated with the set of information
   included within the RA and may later be used to retrieve additional
   information associated with the PvD by the mean of an HTTP request.
