There are currently several Source Address Validation Improvement (SAVI) documents ([RFC6620], [RFC7513], and [RFC7219]) that describe the different methods by which a switch can discover and record bindings between a node's IP address and a binding anchor and use that binding to perform source address validation. Each of these documents specifies how to learn on-link addresses, based on the technique used for their assignment: StateLess Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC), the Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP), and Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND), respectively. Each of these documents describes separately how one particular SAVI method deals with address collisions (same address but different binding anchor).

Source Address Validation Improvement (SAVI) for Mixed Address Assignment Methods Scenario
In networks that use multiple techniques for address assignment, the spoofing of addresses assigned by each technique can be prevented using the appropriate Source Address Validation Improvement (SAVI) methods. This document reviews how multiple SAVI methods can coexist in a single SAVI device and how collisions are resolved when the same binding entry is discovered by two or more methods.
