Recently, providers have started to deploy IPv6 and to consider transition to IPv6. The IPv6 Rapid Deployment (6rd) [RFC5969] provides both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity services simultaneously during the IPv4/IPv6 coexistence period. 6rd is used to provide IPv6 connectivity service through legacy IPv4-only infrastructure. 6rd uses the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) [RFC2131], and the 6rd Customer Edge (CE) uses the DHCP 6rd option [RFC5969] to discover a 6rd Border Relay and to configure an IPv6 prefix and address.

RADIUS Attribute for IPv6 Rapid Deployment on IPv4 Infrastructures (6rd)
The IPv6 Rapid Deployment on IPv4 Infrastructures (6rd) provides both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity services simultaneously during the IPv4/IPv6 coexistence period. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) 6rd option has been defined to configure the 6rd Customer Edge (CE). However, in many networks, the configuration information may be stored in the Authentication Authorization and Accounting (AAA) servers, while user configuration is mainly acquired from a Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) through the DHCP protocol. This document defines a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) attribute that carries 6rd configuration information from the AAA server to BNGs.
