A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
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 et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-send-psreq-02.txt
Pages : 27
Date : 2003-4-8
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 pertinent to IPv6 Neighbor Discovery. The
purpose of this discussion is to define the requirements for Securing
IPv6 Neighbor 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
