A new version of I-D, draft-carpenter-6man-why64-01.txt
has been successfully submitted by Brian Carpenter and posted to the
Title: Analysis of the 64-bit Boundary in IPv6 Addressing
Document date: 2014-02-06
Group: Individual Submission
The IPv6 unicast addressing format includes a separation between the
prefix used to route packets to a subnet and the interface identifier
used to specify a given interface connected to that subnet.
Historically the interface identifier has been defined as 64 bits
long, leaving 64 bits for the prefix. This document discusses the
reasons for this fixed boundary and the issues involved in treating
it as a variable boundary.
Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
