     Coordinate-Based  Dynamic IPv6 Multicast Addresses Allocation
             draft-zhang-coordinate-based-ipv6-multicast-00

Abstract

   This specification defines an extension to the multicast addressing
   architecture of the IP Version 6 protocol.  The extension presented
   in this document allows for coordinate-based allocation of IPv6
   multicast addresses.

1  Introduction

   With the advancement of information technology and the advancement of
   geographic information socialization, location information plays an
   increasingly important role in social services and applications. This
   document provides a way to dynamically allocate multicast addresses
   based on geographic location information. Location-based multicasting
   can be implemented. Currently, there are two general schemes for
   identifying geographical locations, one is latitude and longitude,
   the other is residential address, and the residential address is more
   readable, but the coding of residential address is relatively poor.
   This document uses latitude and longitude to identify location
   information, and carry location information into an IPv6 multicast
   address.

2  Specification of Requirements

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

3. ND Option

   In [RFC6225], DHCPv6 adds the GeoLoc Option to carry latitude and
   longitude information. You can use this option to obtain the latitude
   and longitude information of the server. Currently, the latitude and
   longitude information cannot be obtained in the case of stateless
   address configuration. This document add options to the Neighbor
   Discovery Router Advertisement message. The option is use to carry
   sub-option. The GeoLoc Option is carried in the sub-option. The
