This draft is a work item of the Next Generation Transition Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Dual Stack Transition Mechanism (DSTM) Overview
Author(s) : J. Bound
Filename : draft-ietf-ngtrans-dstm-overview-00.txt
Pages : 9
Date : 19-Jun-02
The initial deployment of IPv6 will require a tightly coupled use of
IPv4 addresses to support the interoperation of IPv6 and IPv4 within
an IPv6-only Network. Nodes will still need to communicate with IPv4
nodes that do not have a dual IP layer supporting both IPv4 and IPv6.
The Dual Stack Transition Mechanism (DSTM) is based on the use of
IPv4-over-IPv6 tunnels to carry IPv4 traffic within an IPv6-only
network and provides a method to allocate a temporary IPv4 Address to
IPv6/IPv4 nodes. DSTM is also a way to avoid the use of Network
Address Translation for early adopter IPv6 deployment.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
