    RADIUS Option for DHCPv6 Relay Agents on Broadband Access Server
                  draft-ietf-dhc-dhcpv6-radius-opt-03

Abstract

   The DHCPv6 RADIUS option provides a mechanism to exchange
   authorization and identification information between relay agent and
   server.  This mechanism is meant to the centralized DHCPv6 server to
   select the right configuration for the requesting client based on the
   authorization information received from the RADIUS server, which is
   not co-located with the DHCPv6 server.  The NAS acts as DHCPv6 relay
   agent and RADIUS client simultaneously in this document.

1.  Introduction

   DHCPv6 provides a mechanism that allows the server to assign or
   delegate both stateful and stateless configuration parameters to the
   clients.  The stateful configuration parameters include IPv6 address
   [RFC3315], IPv6 prefix [RFC3633], etc.  The stateless configuration
   parameters [RFC3736] include, for example, DNS [RFC3646], or a FQDN
   of AFTR [RFC6334].  In this document, the DHCPv6 server is deployed
   in the central part of an ISP network.

   RADIUS [RFC2865] is widely used as the centralized authentication,
   authorization and user management mechanism for the service provision
   in Broadband access network.  [RFC3162], [RFC4818], [RFC6519] and
   [I-D.ietf-radext-ipv6-access] specified attributes that support the
   service provision for IPv6-only and IPv6-transition access.  RADIUS
   server authorizes the NAS to assign an IPv6 address or prefix from
   the indicated pool, or to assign an IPv6 address or prefix with an
