This document defines Centrally Allocated IPv6 Unique Local address prefixes. These prefixes are globally unique and are intended for local communications, usually within a single network administration. They are not intended to be used in place of Provider Independent (PI) address prefixes available from the Regional Internet Registries (RIR) <ref: http://www.iana.org/numbers/ > , and should not appear in the global routing table for the Internet. The draft is being discussed on the ipv6@ietf.org list.
