Technical Summary This document extends DHCPv4 over DHCPv6 (RFC7341) to provide some IPv4-over IPv6 softwire mechanisms and deployment scenarios two additional needed pieces of information. It defines a new DHCPv6 option to indicate the preferred prefix for the client to bind its IPv4 configuration to, and a new DHCPv4 option to indicate the IPv6 address associated with the client's IPv4 configuration, and the procedures to use these options. Working Group Summary This document has been in development, first as an individual submission in the software WG, and more recently in the DHC WG. It has undergone about 10 revisions - with more recent changes being fairly minor. Document Quality The document has had extensive review and input by the working group and by "DHCP experts" and "Softwires experts". Personnel Bernie Volz is the document shepherd. Suresh Krishnan is the current responsible AD.
