Technical Summary This document defines a new DHCP Unique Identifier (DUID) type to be used for identifying clients using Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs). The document defines what is meant by "universal," excluding several things called UUIDs that do not qualify. The purpose of the document is to allow devices that have genuine UUIDs to use those as DUIDs, rather than forming new identifiers and requiring the maintenance of tables mapping between UUIDs and DUIDs. Working Group Summary This document appeared in the working group in October of 2010. There has been substantial review of this document. Document Quality The document has undergone careful review, and the working group is satisfied with its quality. Personnel The document shepherd is Ted Lemon <email@example.com>. The responsible Area Director is Ralph Droms <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
