The DHCPv6 RADIUS option provides a mechanism to exchange
authorization and identification information between the DHCPv6 relay
agent and DHCPv6 server.  This architecture assumes that the Network
Access Server (NAS) acts as both a DHCPv6 relay agent and RADIUS
client.  When receiving messages from the DHCPv6 clients, the NAS
consults the RADIUS server and adds the RADIUS response when
forwarding the DHCPv6 client's messages to the DHCPv6 server.  The
DHCPv6 server then uses that additional information to generate an
appropriate response to the DHCPv6 client's requests.
