The IPv6 Rapid Deployment on IPv4 Infrastructures (6rd) provides both IPv4 and
IPv6 connectivity services simultaneously during the IPv4/IPv6 coexistence
period.  The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) 6rd option has been
defined to configure the 6rd Customer Edge (CE).  However, in many
networks, the configuration information may be stored in
the Authentication Authorization and Accounting (AAA) servers, while user
configuration is mainly acquired from a Broadband Network Gateway
(BNG) through the DHCP protocol.  This document defines a Remote
Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) attribute that carries
6rd configuration information from the AAA server to BNGs.

This document is a product of the Softwires Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
