To make the story short: Based on the recent discussion we had on our
IETF I-D draft-gont-6man-slaac-renum, we have posted this new I-D which
focuses on discussing the problem, and describing operational mitigations.

The document is available at:

Comments are welcome. It is being discussed on the IETF v6ops wg

If possible, post your comments on the v6ops wg list. But comments are
welcome, whether there, here, or even unicast to us (co-authors) ;-)

A new version of I-D, draft-gont-v6ops-slaac-renum-00.txt
has been successfully submitted by Fernando Gont and posted to the
IETF repository.

Name:		draft-gont-v6ops-slaac-renum
Revision:	00
Title:		Reaction of Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) to
Renumbering Events
Document date:	2019-07-06
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		14
Htmlized:       https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-gont-v6ops-slaac-renum-00

   In scenarios where network configuration information related to IPv6
   prefixes becomes invalid without any explicit signaling of that
   condition (such as when a CPE crashes and reboots without knowledge
   of the previously-employed prefixes), nodes on the local network will
   continue using stale prefixes for an unacceptably long period of
   time, thus resulting in connectivity problems.  This document
   analyzes these problem scenarios, and discusses operational
   workarounds to improve network robustness.

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
