                    Home Networking Control Protocol
                       draft-ietf-homenet-hncp-05

Abstract

   This document describes the Home Networking Control Protocol (HNCP),
   an extensible configuration protocol and a set of requirements for
   home network devices on top of the Distributed Node Consensus
   Protocol (DNCP).  It enables automated configuration of addresses,
   naming, network borders and the seamless use of a routing protocol.
