As noted by David Miles in his post on September 23, 2009 (see http://ops.ietf.org/lists/radiusext/2009/msg00444.html) , the Broadband Forum has a need for additional RADIUS attributes in order to support their work on IPv6 access over PPP.
To address the request from the Broadband Forum, the RADEXT WG held a session on IPv6 access during the RADEXT Virtual Interim meeting on October 13, 2009. During this meeting, consensus was reached on next steps with respect to the Broadband Forum request. The purpose of this message is to confirm the consensus reached during the interim meeting on those next steps.
As described in the minutes of the RADEXT Virtual Interim meeting (see http://ops.ietf.org/lists/radiusext/2009/msg00531.html), a suggestion was made by David Miles to focus WG efforts on completion of work on IPv6 RADIUS attributes relevant to the work of the Broadband Forum (primarily IPv6-Address but also potentially DNS-Server-Address). In order to move forward, David volunteered to put together a document defining additional RADIUS Attributes for use in Broadband Forum IPv6 PPP usage scenarios. This document would include an overview of the Broadband Forum IPv6 over PPP architecture, while incorporating relevant attributes defined in a previously expired document, http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-lourdelet-radext-ipv6-dhcp. Assuming that the WG consensus was confirmed, David promised to prepare a document meeting this description for consideration.
The Consensus Call will last until Friday, December 4, 2009. If you favor the consensus of the virtual interim meeting as described above (to focus on completing a document relating to the Broadband Forum’s IPv6 over PPP scenarios), please reply to this email affirmatively, indicating your support for David’s suggested next steps. If you oppose the consensus of the Virtual Interim, please reply indicating your opposition, as well as a potential alternate way forward.
