Abstract

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) enables DHCPv6 servers to pass configuration parameters. It offers configuration flexibility. If not secured, DHCPv6 is vulnerable to various attacks, particularly spoofing attack. This document analyzes the security issues of DHCPv6 and specifies a Secure DHCPv6 mechanism based on using CGAs.
