Abstract

Hosts may assign random link-layer addresses to network interfaces in an attempt to increase privacy and reduce trackability. Careless assignment of IPv6 addresses may negate the privacy advantages of random link-layer addresses. We propose simple solutions to ensure that IPv6 addresses do change whenever the link layer addresses change.
