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
    in IPv6'
   (draft-ietf-6man-rfc4941bis-12.txt) as Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group.

Technical Summary

    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.

Document Quality

    There are multiple implementations of the mechanism described.


    Ole Trøan is the document shepherd.
    Erik Kline is the responsible AD.
