This document describes an operational problem that arises due to the impossibility of managing the use of "Privacy Extensions" for IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) in network scenarios that employ SLAAC. Additionally, this document specifies new flag in the Prefix Information option of Router Advertisement messages, such that routers can advertise, for each network prefix to be used for SLAAC, whether the aforementioned "Privacy Extensions" should be used.
