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

        Title           : Gratuitous Neighbor Discovery: Creating Neighbor Cache Entries on First-Hop Routers
        Author          : Jen Linkova
	Filename        : draft-ietf-6man-grand-00.txt
	Pages           : 11
	Date            : 2020-03-09

   Neighbor Discovery (RFC4861) is used by IPv6 nodes to determine the
   link-layer addresses of neighboring nodes as well as to discover and
   maintain reachability information.  This document updates [RFC4861]
   to allow routers to proactively create a Neighbor Cache entry when a
   new IPv6 address is assigned to a host.  It also updates [RFC4862]
   and recommends hosts to send unsolicited Neighbor Advertisements upon
   assigning a new IPv6 address.  The proposed change will minimize the
   delay and packet loss when a host initiate connections to off-link
   destination from a new IPv6 address.
