Hi, more and more IPv6 address generation methods are being specified that
intend to generate IPv6 addresses that are highly likely to be unique on either
a global scale or unique within a bounded service domain. So much so, that
some address generation methods intend for the IPv6 addresses to be usable
as node identifiers.

Recognizing this, this document proposes a new DHCPv6 DUID type known
as "DHCP-V6ADDR" that includes an IPv6 address in the body of the DUID. In
this way, IPv6 addresses produced by address generation methods intending
to generate a node ID can be used as unique identifiers in DHCPv6 message
exchanges. This would introduce a single new DUID type, for which the IANA
allocation policy is  "standards action".

Alternatively, a separate DUID type could be allocated for each IPv6 address
generation method. However, that approach may result in additional IANA
allocations and would require implementation updates every time a new
address generation method is specified. Hence, a single generic DUID type
for all IPv6 generation methods is proposed, but open for discussion.

Comments on the list welcome.

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

        Title           : The IPv6 Address-based DHCPv6 Unique Identifier (DUID-V6ADDR)
        Author          : Fred L. Templin
	Filename        : draft-templin-duid-ipv6-01.txt

	Date            : 2021-01-11

   This document defines a new DHCPv6 Unique Identifier (DUID) type
   called DUID-V6ADDR that contains a single 128 bit IPv6 address.
   DUID-V6ADDR makes it possible for devices to use suitably-derived
   unique IPv6 addresses to identify themselves to DHCPv6 servers and/or
   other network nodes.
