The existing IETF standards specify that IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND)
and Address Autoconfiguration mechanisms may be protected with IPsec
Authentication Header (AH).  However, the current specifications limit
the security solutions to manual keying due to practical problems
faced with automatic key management.  This document specifies three
different trust models and discusses the threats pertinent to IPv6
Neighbor Discovery.  The purpose of this discussion is to define the
requirements for Securing IPv6 Neighbor Discovery.

This document is a product of the Securing Neighbor Discovery Working
Group of the IETF.
