FYI, the IESG has finally approved our IETF Internet-Draft
(https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6man-rfc4941bi) -- a revision of
the IPv6 "Temporary Addresses" specification (RFC4941s).
It has been four years of work on this document....
I also did the Linux implementation earlier this year:
And a FreeBSD one that for some reason has not yet been committed.

The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Temporary Address Extensions for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration
(draft-ietf-6man-rfc4941bis-12.txt) as Proposed Standard
This document is the product of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group.
The IESG contact persons are Erik Kline and Éric Vyncke.
A URL of this Internet Draft is:
This document describes an extension that causes nodes to generate
global scope addresses with randomized interface identifiers that
change over time. Changing global scope addresses over time limits
the window of time during which eavesdroppers and other information
collectors may trivially perform address-based network activity
correlation when the same address is employed for multiple
transactions by the same node. Additionally, it reduces the window
of exposure of a node via an addresses that becomes revealed as a
result of active communication. This document obsoletes RFC4941.
Working Group Summary
This document is an update of RFC4941. The document
shepherd has reviewed every change to the document as it
has processed as well as a thorough read through of the
whole final document.
There are multiple implementations of the mechanism described.
Ole Trøan is the document shepherd.
Erik Kline is the responsible AD.
