This document specifies a protocol mechanism tailored to advance deployment of IPv6 to end users via a Service Provider's IPv4 network infrastructure. Key aspects include automatic IPv6 prefix delegation to sites, stateless operation, simple provisioning, and service which is equivalent to native IPv6 outside of the SP's IPv4 network infrastructure.
