Technical Summary IPv6 Rapid Deployment (6rd) provides IPv6 connectivity over legacy IPv4-only infrastructure. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) 6rd option has been defined to configure 6rd Customer Edge (CE). However, in many networks, the configuration information may be stored in AAA servers, while users may be configured by Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) through DHCP. This document defines a RADIUS attribute that carries 6rd configuration information from AAA server to BNG. Working Group Summary This document was discussed in depth and well-reviewed. The document was also presented and reviewed in wg radext. WG consensus is strong to publish this document. The authors also revised the document based on the review comments given by IESG on a similar document, RADIUS Extensions for Dual-Stack Lite, RFC 6519. Document Quality As far as we know, there is no existing implementation yet. A couple of vendors may have the plan to implement. This may not be counted as a significant number, yet. Personnel Softwire co-chair, Yong Cui, is the Document Shepherd. Ralph Droms is the Responsible AD.
