This document defines new attributes to facilitate Mobile IPv6 bootstrapping via a RADIUS infrastructure. In an access network where the user attaches to get IPv6 access, there may be a Network Access Server (NAS) or an Access Gateway that will require authentication and authorization. In some cases, this type of access authentication takes place via RADIUS infrastructure. As part of the authentication setup the NAS may receive useful configuration information from the home RADIUS server of the user. In case of Mobile IPv6 access, the Home RADIUS server may assign various information relevant to the user's device for bootstrapping.
