Access Control Prefix Router Advertisement Option for IPv6

Bellovin, Steven Michael

Some very low-end devices are expected to rely on address-based authentication, even though that is not a high-security mechanism. In particular, they may wish to permit access by "local" peers only, for some value of "local". This memo proposes a new Router Advertisement option to supply a list of privileged prefixes.
