Abstract

   DS-Lite, defined in RFC 6333,  directs IANA to reserve 192.0.0.0/29
   for the B4 element.  This memo directs IANA to generalize that
   reservation to include other cases where a non-routed IPv4 interface
   must be numbered as part of an IPv6 transition solution.

INTERNET DRAFT       IPv4 Service Continuity Prefix        June 11, 2014

1.  Introduction

   DS-Lite [RFC6333] directs IANA to reserve 192.0.0.0/29 for the Basic
   Bridging BroadBand (B4) element.  This memo generalizes that IANA
   reservation to include other cases where a non-routed IPv4 interface
   must be numbered in an IPv6 transition solution.  IANA shall list the
   address block 192.0.0.0/29 reserved for IPv4 Service Continuity
   Prefix.  The result is that 192.0.0.0/29 may be used in any system
   that requires IPv4 addresses for backward compatibility with IPv4
   communications in an IPv6-only network, but does not emit IPv4
   packets "on the wire".

   This generalization does not impact the use of the IPv4 Service
   Continuity Prefix in a DS-Lite context.

2.  The Case of 464XLAT

   464XLAT [RFC6877] describes an architecture for providing IPv4
   communication over an IPv6-only access network.  One of the methods
   described in [RFC6877] is for the client side translator (CLAT) to be
   embedded in the host, such as a smartphone or a CPE (Customer
   Premises Equipment).  In such scenarios, the host must have an IPv4
   address configured to present to the host network stack and for
   applications to bind IPv4 sockets.

3.  Choosing 192.0.0.0/29

   To avoid conflicts with any other network that may communicate with
   the CLAT or other IPv6 transition solution, a locally unique IPv4
   address must be assigned.

   IANA has defined a well-known range, 192.0.0.0/29, in [RFC6333],
   which is dedicated for DS-Lite.  As defined in [RFC6333], this subnet
   is only present between the B4 and the AFTR and never emits packets
   from this prefix "on the wire".  464XLAT has the same need for a non-
