                 RADIUS Extensions for Dual-Stack Lite

Abstract

   Dual-Stack Lite is a solution to offer both IPv4 and IPv6
   connectivity to customers that are addressed only with an IPv6
   prefix.  Dual-Stack Lite requires pre-configuration of the Dual-Stack
   Lite Address Family Transition Router (AFTR) tunnel information on
   the Basic Bridging BroadBand (B4) element.  In many networks, the
   customer profile information may be stored in Authentication,
   Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) servers, while client
   configurations are mainly provided through the Dynamic Host
   Configuration Protocol (DHCP).  This document specifies a new Remote
   Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) attribute to carry the
   Dual-Stack Lite AFTR tunnel name; the RADIUS attribute is defined
   based on the equivalent DHCPv6 OPTION_AFTR_NAME option.  This RADIUS
   attribute is meant to be used between the RADIUS server and the
   Network Access Server (NAS); it is not intended to be used directly
   between the B4 element and the RADIUS server.
