        Title           : On the Generation of Transient Numeric Identifiers

   This document performs an analysis of the security and privacy
   implications of different types of "transient numeric identifiers"
   used in IETF protocols, and tries to categorize them based on their
   interoperability requirements and their associated failure severity
   when such requirements are not met.  Subsequently, it provides advice
   on possible algorithms that could be employed to satisfy the
   interoperability requirements of each identifier category, while
   minimizing the negative security and privacy implications, thus
   providing guidance to protocol designers and protocol implementers.
   Finally, it describes a number of algorithms that have been employed
   in real implementations to generate transient numeric identifiers,
   and analyzes their security and privacy properties.  This document is
   a product of the Privacy Enhancement and Assessment Research Group
   (PEARG) in the IRTF.
