The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 [2] (DHCPv6) provides a framework for passing configuration information to hosts on a TCP/IP network. Configuration parameters and other control information are carried in tagged data items that are stored in the 'options' field of the DHCPv6 message. The data items themselves are also called 'options.' This document specifies the current set of DHCPv6 options. This document will be periodically updated as new options are defined. Each superseding document will include the entire current list of valid options.
