This draft is a work item of the Securing Neighbor Discovery Working Group of the IETF.
Title : IPv6 Neighbor Discovery trust models and threats
Author(s) : P. Nikander
Filename : draft-ietf-send-psreq-00.txt

The existing IETF standards specify that IPv6 Neighbor Discovery
and Address Autoconfiguration mechanisms MAY be protected with
IPsec AH. However, the current specifications limit the security
solutions to manual keying due to practical problems faced with
automatic key management. This document specifies three different
trust models and discusses the threats pertient to IPv6 Neighbor
Discovery. The purpose of this discussion is to define the
requirements for Securing IPv6 Neigbor Discovery.

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
