Technical Summary Network managers currently prefer Provider Independent (PI) addressing for IPv6 to attempt to minimize the need for future possible renumbering. However, a widespread use of PI addresses may cause Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) scaling problems. It is thus desirable to develop tools and practices that make IPv6 renumbering a simpler process to reduce demand for IPv6 PI space [RFC6879]. This document solves the HNP renumbering problem when the HNP in PMIPv6 [RFC5213] is not the type of PI. Working Group Summary This document belongs to the PMIPv6 maintenance work. It has been discussed in the working group and reviewed by several PMIPv6 experts. There is WG consensus to publish this document. Document Quality During the discussion of this document in the working group, related vendors believed that Home Network Prefix renumbering for PMIPv6 is needed. This document has been reviewed by the PMIPv6 experts in DMM working group. Personnel The document Shepherd is WG co-chair Dapeng Liu. The Responsible Area Director is Suresh Krishnan.
