Title: A Method for Generating Semantically
Opaque Interface Identifiers (IIDs) with the
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6
Author: F. Gont, W. Liu
Date: September 2016
I-D Tag: draft-gont-dhcpv6-stable-privacy-addresses-02.txt
This document describes a method for selecting IPv6 Interface
Identifiers that can be employed by Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) servers when leasing non-temporary IPv6
addresses to DHCPv6 clients. This method is a DHCPv6 server-side
algorithm that does not require any updates to the existing DHCPv6
specifications. The aforementioned method results in stable
addresses within each subnet, even in the presence of multiple DHCPv6
servers or DHCPv6 server reinstallments. It is a DHCPv6 variant of
the method specified in RFC 7217 for IPv6 Stateless Address
