IPv4-over-IPv6 transition mechanisms provide IPv4 connectivity
services over IPv6 native networks during the IPv4/IPv6 coexistence
period.  DHCPv6 options have been defined to configure clients for
Lightweight 4over6, Mapping of Address and Port with Encapsulation
(MAP-E), Mapping of Address and Port using Translation (MAP-T)
unicast softwire mechanisms, and multicast softwires.  However, in
many networks, configuration information is stored in an
Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) server, which
utilizes the Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS)
protocol to provide centralized management for users.  When a new
transition mechanism is developed, new RADIUS attributes need to be
defined correspondingly.

This document defines new RADIUS attributes to carry softwire
configuration parameters based on Address plus Port from a AAA server
to a Broadband Network Gateway.  Both unicast and multicast
attributes are covered.

This document is a product of the Softwires Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
