Your summary is comprehensive as it includes DHCP & IKEv2 too though they 
didn't ask specifically.

For IKEv2 I see similar stuff needed for Config Payloads (for most of the 
attribute types), but not sure how this would be used in FMC cases (non-3GPP

Subject: Re: [DMM] FW: New Liaison Statement, "LS on indicating service 
continuity usage of the additional IPv6 prefix in Router Advertisement"

Based on the feedback and some offline discussions with Danny and others, here 
is the response with some corrections. Please comment.



Dear 3GPP SA2 Chair:

Thank you for your LS query (Reference: The IETF DMM working group has 
reviewed the LS statement and below is our response.

In our view, the work-item described in the LS query has three components:

1.) The approach of coloring IPv4 and IPv6 addresses/prefixes with mobility 

This is about standardizing IP address address/prefix ³types". Each ³type"
has a certain behavior that the network is expected to provide. Section 3.1, of 
draft-ietf-dmm-ondemand-mobility-13 defines the following four address types, 
which are applicable to both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and prefixes. 

#a. Fixed IP Address
#b. Session-lasting IP Address
#c. Non-persistent IP Address
#d. Graceful Replacement IP Address

These modes, #a, #b, #c,and #d can be mapped to the 3GPP SSC modes 1, 2 and 3.

We are happy to report that this work-item is on track to become an 
³informational standard", and will most likely will hit IESG very soon.

We kindly request 3GPP to provide any feedback that you may have on this draft.

2.) The approach of network including property meta-data in address assignment 

There are multiple mechanisms for address configuration delivery to the

#a.) DHCPv4
#b.) DHCPv6
#c.) IPv6 ND (PIO Options, others ..etc)
#d.) IKEv2 Address Configuration Options

There are many proposals on this including:

Also, some proposals from the previous years:

Currently, these documents are under review in the IETF DMM WG. However, the 
DMM working group has not chosen any specific draft as WG document.
Given the interest from 3GPP for this work, we will try to accelerate the 
document selection process and will try to move this work forward. This is 
subject to finding consensus for taking up this work.

We also like to point out that, all though the LS statement explicitly refers 
to both IPv4 and IPv6 address types, however it only mentions about
(RA) (IPv6 ND implied) as the mechanism for address property delivery. It is to 
be noted that the approach of delivering coloring meta-data in RA messages will 
most likely be to limited to IPv6 address/prefix types and will not be extended 
to IPv4 addresses. If this capability is required for IPv4, we may have to 
possibly extend DHCP protocol(s).

We kindly request SA2 to clarify if the Ask is explicitly for IPv6, or if its 
for both IPv4 and IPv6 address/prefix types.

3.) The approach of indicating the coloring meta-data to the applications on 
the mobile node (UE in 3GPP terminology).

This is about extending socket interface with the property tags. This is 
covered in draft-ietf-dmm-ondemand-mobility-13,

We are happy to report that this work is on track to become an ³informational 
standard", and will most likely will hit IESG very soon.

We kindly request 3GPP to provide any feedback that you may have on this draft.
