Technical Summary

   DHCP Forcerenew allows for the reconfiguration of a single host by
   forcing the DHCP client into a Renew state on a trigger from the
   DHCP server.  In Forcerenew Nonce Authentication the server
   exchanges a nonce with the client on the initial DHCP ACK that is
   used for subsequent validation of a Forcerenew message.
