This document defines a new DHCPv6 Unique Identifier (DUID) type
called DUID-UUID.  DUID-UUIDs are derived from the already-standardized
Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID) format.  DUID-UUID
makes it possible for devices to use UUIDs to identify themselves to
DHC servers and vice versa.  UUIDs are globally unique and readily
available on many systems, making them convenient identifiers to
leverage within DHCP.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
