           SAVI for Mixed Address Assignment Methods Scenario
                         draft-ietf-savi-mix-10

Abstract

   In networks that use multiple techniques for address assignment, the
   appropriate Source Address Validation Improvement (SAVI) methods must
   be used to prevent spoofing of addresses assigned by each such
   technique.  This document reviews how multiple SAVI methods can
   coexist in a single SAVI device and collisions are resolved when the
   same binding entry is discovered by two or more methods.

1.  Introduction

   There are currently several Source Address Validaiton Improvement
   (SAVI) documents ([RFC6620], [RFC7513] and [RFC7219]) that describe
   the different methods by which a switch can discover and record
   bindings between a node's IP address and a binding anchor and use
   that binding to perform source address validation.  Each of these
   documents specifies how to learn on-link addresses, based on the
   technique used for their assignment, respectively: StateLess
   Autoconfiguration (SLAAC), Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP) and
   Secure Neighbor Discovery (SeND).  Each of these documents describes
   separately how one particular SAVI method deals with address
   collisions (same address, different binding anchor).
