The IESG contact persons are David Kessens and Dan Romascanu. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-radext-delegated-prefix-06.txt
Technical Summary This document describes a RADIUS attribute that enables assignment of an IPv6 prefix for delegation by the Network Access Server. The need for this attribute was discovered during IPv6 deployments using prefix delegation. The document uses an attribute format similar to that used for the Framed-IPv6-Prefix attribute in RFC 3162, so that support for the attribute can be added to the dictionary in several existing RADIUS servers without requiring code changes. Working Group Summary This document has been through RADEXT WG last call. Discussion focused on aspects of the attribute format, RFC 3162 deployment models, and editorial issues. Protocol Quality David Kessens has reviewed this document for the IESG.
