The Prefix Delegation options provide a mechanism for automated
delegation of IPv6 prefixes using the Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP).  This mechanism is intended for delegating a
long-lived prefix from a delegating router to a requesting router,
across an administrative boundary, where the delegating router does
not require knowledge about the topology of the links in the network
to which the prefixes will be assigned.

This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working
Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
