Title : AAA for IPv6 Network Access
Author(s) : C. Perkins et al.
Filename : draft-perkins-aaav6-06.txt

IPv6 nodes (clients) need a way to offer credentials to the AAA
infrastructure in order to be granted access to the local network.
For IPv6, it will be more efficient and thus reasonable to expect
such access controls to be exerted by IPv6 routers, possibly as
part of performing their role as DHCPv6 relays. Routers and DHCPv6
servers are expected to work in conjunction with AAA servers to
determine whether or not the client's credentials are valid. Routers
can exert such network access control by the device of carefully
controlling entries in their packet filter and Neighbor Cache.

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
