RFC 6724 defines default address selection mechanisms for IPv6 that
allow nodes to select an appropriate address when faced with multiple
source and/or destination addresses to choose between.  RFC 6724
allows for the future definition of methods to administratively
configure the address selection policy information.  This document
defines a new DHCPv6 option for such configuration, allowing a site
administrator to distribute address selection policy overriding the
default address selection parameters and policy table, and thus
allowing the administrator to control the address selection behavior
of nodes in their site.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
