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.
