This document is a collection of potential solutions for revealing a
host identifier (denoted as HOST_ID) when a Carrier Grade NAT (CGN)
or application proxies are involved in the path.  This host
identifier could be used by a remote server to sort packets according
to the sending host.  The host identifier must be unique to each host
under the same shared IP address.

This document analyzes a set of potential solutions for revealing a
host identifier and does not recommend a particular solution,
although it does highlight the hazards of some approaches.

This document is a product of the Internet Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.
