A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
 This draft is a work item of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group of the IETF.

   Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) for IPv6 typically
   results in hosts configuring one or more stable addresses composed of
   a network prefix advertised by a local router, and an Interface
   Identifier that typically embeds a hardware address (e.g., an IEEE
   LAN MAC address).  The security and privacy implications of embedding
   hardware addresses in the Interface Identifier have been known and
   understood for some time now, and some popular IPv6 implementations
   have already deviated from such schemes to mitigate these issues.
   This document recommends [I-D.ietf-6man-stable-privacy-addresses] as
   the default scheme for the generating stable IPv6 addresses and
   recommends against embedding hardware addresses in IPv6 Interface
