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


Repo Notes

  • Developing on branch 'develop'
  • Will bring commits into master when they are ready for upstream merging. This way I can rebase them and merge several related commits into one larger commit for submission upstream (or mix several “oops” commits into the commit that originally contained the mistake).
  • Can bring upstream changes into develop branch via master

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.
  • Packet Dumps and relevant notes.
