A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the IETF. Title : Security Architecture for DHCP Author(s) : O. Gudmundsson Filename : draft-ietf-dhc-security-arch-01.txt Pages : 14 Date : 1997-08-04 This document addresses the general security requirements of both v4 and v6 versions of DHCP. This document lists security requirements and proposes as security model, which meets scaling requirements, security requirements and efficiency requirements. The proposed security model uses public key cryptography and a proposed trusted key distribution mechanism to authenticate clients and servers. The authentication protocol can also exchange keying material for more efficiently protecting successive communication between client and server. The security model also addresses securing relay agents. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login wih the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address.

Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-dhc-security-arch-01.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
