This document specifies the problem statement for IPv6-based vehicle- to-infrastructure networking. Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) is standardized as IEEE 802.11p for the wireless media access in vehicular networks. This document addresses the extension of IPv6 as the network layer protocol in vehicular networks and is focused on the networking issues in one-hop communication between a Road-Side Unit (RSU) and vehicle. The RSU is connected to the Internet and allows vehicles to have the Internet access if connected. The major issues of including IPv6 in vehicular networks are neighbor discovery protocol, stateless address autoconfiguration, and DNS configuration for the Internet connectivity over DSRC. Also, when a vehicle and an RSU have an internal network, respectively, the document discusses the issues of the internetworking between the vehicle's internal network and the RSU's internal network (e.g., prefix discovery, prefix exchange, and service discovery), and also security and privacy issues.
