Technical Summary This specification defines a new mechanism for DHCPv4, modeled on the DHCPv6 Rapid Commit option and mechanism, for obtaining IP address and configuration information using a 2 message exchange instead of the usual 4 message exchange. Working Group Summary There was consensus in the WG for approval of the DHCPv4 rapid commit option and associated mechanism. It has been thoroughly reviewed by the dhc WG and discussed in WG meetings and on the dhcwg mailing list. Samsung has published an IPR claim, in which it promises to provide zero-cost licensing, related to this specification. Protocol Quality This extension to the DHCPv4 protocol and its specification is of high quality and had been thoroughly reviewed by the dhc WG. Several vendors have expressed interest in implementing this extension to DHCPv4. This document has been reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
