The Prefix Delegation option and the Prefix Request option provide a mechanism for delegation of IPv6 prefixes using DHCP. This prefix delegation mechanism is intended for simple prefix delegation from a delegating router to a requesting router, across an administrative boundary, where the delegating router does not require knowledge about the topology of the links in the network to which the prefixes will be assigned.
