     Autonomic IPv6 Edge Prefix Management in Large-scale Networks
                 draft-ietf-anima-prefix-management-03

Abstract

   This document describes an autonomic solution for IPv6 prefix
   management at the edge of large-scale ISP networks.  An important
   purpose of the document is to use it for validation of the design of
   various components of the autonomic networking infrastructure.
