DHCPv6 SWG
Objectives
This SWG is working on development of test specification and test tool to ensure interoperability between equipments implementing "DHCPv6 Protocols" that helps to autoconfiguration of network equipments.
Background
IPv6 Protocols contains functionalities to configure IP address and default router automatically. However, due to security or management reason, there still remains the requirement of autoconfiguration using DHCPv6. In addition, IPv6 does not contains the means to provide DNS configuration. Furthermore, Home network needs to be assigned IPv6 prefix with DHCPv6. It means the importance of DHCPv6 is increasing.
In this circumstances, it is required to clearly define the required DHCPv6 functiokns and develop the evaluation technique from neutral position.
Purpose
We develop the test specifications and tools to validate the equipment as a means to ensure interoperability between DHCPv6 server and client. The purpose of this activity is to promote the wide use of them, and to establish them as the international standard of test specification for the equipment.
More specifically, we aim for these specifications and tools to be adopted in "IPv6 Ready Logo Program" that is international activity to ensure the connectivity of IPv6 equipments.
