Matthew Iselin: IPv6 Implementation


I'll update this with notes and links to websites I find as I'm working on the project that might be handy later on. The notes here may also be the foundation for the IPv6 documentation later on.

Useful RFCs


Notes to Self

  • Can't get network interface's MAC address within a TCPIP protocol (eg ICMP, UDP). Will need to have a user begin the process of autoconfiguration for a link-local address manually!
  • Link-local address must always be present, globally routed address can be obtained via router advertisements or DHCPv6 (and may not exist). How do we manage this for potential users?
  • Probably worth fixing DNS to use AAAA records earlier rather than later.
