          IPv6 Rapid Deployment on IPv4 Infrastructures (6rd) --                          Protocol Specification

Abstract

   This document specifies an automatic tunneling mechanism tailored to    advance deployment of IPv6 to end users via a service provider's IPv4    network infrastructure.  Key aspects include automatic IPv6 prefix    delegation to sites, stateless operation, simple provisioning, and    service, which is equivalent to native IPv6 at the sites that are    served by the mechanism.
