Technical Summary:

This document specifies the procedure for creating a binding between a
DHCPv4/DHCPv6 assigned IP address and a binding anchor on a SAVI (Source
Address Validation Improvements) device. The bindings set up by this
procedure is used to filter out packets with forged source IP address in
DHCP scenario. This mechanism is proposed as a complement to ingress
filtering to provide finer-grained source IP address validation.

Working Group Summary:

Even though IPR have been disclosed, there is no concern from the WG to move
forward this document as Proposed Standard.
