This document presents the China Education and Research Network
(CERNET)'s IVI translation design and deployment for the IPv4/IPv6
coexistence and transition.

The IVI is a prefix-specific and stateless address mapping mechanism
for "an IPv6 network to the IPv4 Internet" and "the IPv4 Internet to
an IPv6 network" scenarios.  In the IVI design, subsets of the ISP's
IPv4 addresses are embedded in the ISP's IPv6 addresses, and the
hosts using these IPv6 addresses can therefore communicate with the
global IPv6 Internet directly and can communicate with the global
IPv4 Internet via stateless translators.  The communications can
either be IPv6 initiated or IPv4 initiated.  The IVI mechanism
supports the end-to-end address transparency and incremental
deployment.  The IVI is an early design deployed in the CERNET as a
reference for the IETF standard documents on IPv4/IPv6 stateless
translation.  This document is not an Internet Standards Track 
specification; it is published for informational purposes.
