From: The IESG
To: IETF-Announce Cc: RFC Editor , dhc mailing list , dhc chair Subject: Protocol Action: 'Virtual Subnet Selection Options for DHCPv4 and DHCPv6' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-dhc-vpn-option-15.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Virtual Subnet Selection Options for DHCPv4 and DHCPv6' (draft-ietf-dhc-vpn-option-15.txt) as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ralph Droms and Jari Arkko. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-dhc-vpn-option/
Technical Summary The draft documents DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 options used by client, servers, relays, and in some cases proxies to identify the VPN that a particular request originates from. These options are intended to be used to by DHCP servers to help determine how to respond to DHCP requests. For DHCPv4 the draft defines options in agreement with [RFC3942]. Working Group Summary There was nothing controversial about this document. Document Quality At least one DHCP server supports this implementation. It is also believed that at least one client implementation exists that supports the specified options for DHCPv4. Beyond what was performed with key members of the dhc WG no special reviews were performed or required. Note that this document has been extensively revised based on previous IESG review, and a second IETF last call has been issued for this document, prior to it returning to an IESG telechat agenda.
