  IPv6 Configuration in Internet Key Exchange Protocol Version 2 (IKEv2)


   When Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2) is used for    remote VPN access (client to VPN gateway), the gateway assigns the    client an IP address from the internal network using IKEv2    configuration payloads.  The configuration payloads specified in RFC    4306 work well for IPv4 but make it difficult to use certain features    of IPv6.  This document specifies new configuration attributes for    IKEv2 that allows the VPN gateway to assign IPv6 prefixes to clients,    enabling all features of IPv6 to be used with the client-gateway    "virtual link".
