A number of transition techniques have been defined to allow IPv4 packets to pass between hosts and IPv4 networks over an intervening IPv6 network while minimizing the number of public IPv4 addresses that need to be consumed by the hosts. Different operators will deploy different technologies, and sometimes one operator will use more than one technology depending on what is supported by the available equipment and upon other factors both technical and economic.

   Attribute-Value Pairs for Provisioning Customer Equipment Supporting                  IPv4-Over-IPv6 Transitional Solutions


   During the transition from IPv4 to IPv6, customer equipment may have    to support one of the various transition methods that have been    defined for carrying IPv4 packets over IPv6.  This document    enumerates the information that needs to be provisioned on a customer    edge router to support a list of transition techniques based on    tunneling IPv4 in IPv6, with a view to defining reusable components    for a reasonable transition path between these techniques.  To the    extent that the provisioning is done dynamically, Authentication,    Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) support is needed to provide the    information to the network server responsible for passing the    information to the customer equipment.  This document specifies    Diameter (RFC 6733) Attribute-Value Pairs (AVPs) to be used for that    purpose.
