Title : SEcure Neighbor Discovery (SEND)
Author(s) : J. Arkko
Filename : draft-ietf-send-ndopt-02.txt

IPv6 nodes use the Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) to discover
other nodes on the link, to determine each the link-layer addresses
of the nodes on the link, to find routers, and to maintain
reachability information about the paths to active neighbors. If not
secured, NDP is vulnerable to various attacks. This document
specifies security mechanisms for NDP. Unlike to the original NDP
specifications, these mechanisms do not make use of IPsec.

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
