Abstract 

   In the IPv6 address allocation scenarios, host self-generated 
   addresses are notionally conflicted with the network managed address 
   architecture. These addresses need to be registered in the networking 
   management plate for the purposes of central address administration. 
   This document introduces a generic address registration solution 
   using DHCPv6, and defines one new ND option and one new DHCPv6 option 
   in order to propagate the solicitations of registering self-generated 
   addresses. The registration procedure reuses the existing IA_NA in 
   the DHCPv6 protocol.

1. Introduction & Requirements 

   In the IPv6 address allocation scenarios, there are many host self-
   generated addresses, such as addresses in IPv6 Stateless Address 
   Configuration [RFC4862, RFC4941] scenario and Cryptographically 
   Generated Addresses (CGA, [RFC3972]), and etc. These addresses are 
   notionally conflicted with the network managed address architecture, 
   such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6, 
   [RFC3315]) managed network or network with Access Control List. 

   Many operators of enterprise networks and similarly tightly 
   administered networks have expressed the desire to be at least aware 
   the hosts' addresses when moving to IPv6. Furthermore, they may want 
   to stop the usage of some hosts' addresses for various reasons.
