When Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2) is used for
remote VPN access (client to VPN gateway), the gateway assigns the
client an IP address from the internal network using IKEv2
configuration payloads.  The configuration payloads specified in RFC
4306 work well for IPv4 but make it difficult to use certain features
of IPv6.  This document specifies new configuration attributes for
IKEv2 that allows the VPN gateway to assign IPv6 prefixes to clients,
enabling all features of IPv6 to be used with the client-gateway
"virtual link".  This document defines an Experimental Protocol 
for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the IP Security Maintenance and Extensions Working Group of the IETF.
