This draft is a work item of the Privacy Enhancements and Assessments Research Group RG of the IRTF.

        Title           : On the Generation of Transient Numeric Identifiers
        Authors         : Fernando Gont

   This document performs an analysis of the security and privacy
   implications of different types of "numeric identifiers" used in IETF
   protocols, and tries to categorize them based on their
   interoperability requirements and the 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 security and privacy implications, thus providing
   guidance to protocol designers and protocol implementers.  Finally,
   this describes a number of algorithms that have been employed in real
   implementations to generate transient numeric identifiers and
   analyzes their security and privacy properties.
