ip-token


SYNOPSIS

       ip token { COMMAND | help }

       ip token set TOKEN dev DEV

       ip token get [ dev DEV ]

       ip token [ list ]


DESCRIPTION

       IPv6 tokenized interface identifer support is used for assigning well-
       known host-part addresses to nodes whilst still obtaining a global net-
       work prefix from Router advertisements. The primary target for tok-
       enized identifiers are server platforms where addresses are usually
       manually configured, rather than using DHCPv6 or SLAAC. By using tok-
       enized identifiers, hosts can still determine their network prefix by
       use of SLAAC, but more readily be automatically renumbered should their
       network prefix change [1]. Tokenized IPv6 Identifiers are described in
       the draft [1]: <draft-chown-6man-tokenised-ipv6-identifiers-02>.

   ip token set - set an interface token
       set the interface token to the kernel. Once a token is set, it cannot
       be removed from the interface, only overwritten.

       TOKEN  the interface identifer token address.

       dev DEV
              the networking interface.

   ip token get - get the interface token from the kernel
       show a tokenized interface identifer of a particular networking device.
       Arguments: coincide with the arguments of ip token set but the TOKEN
       must be left out.

   ip token list - list all interface tokens
       list all tokenized interface identifers for the networking interfaces
       from the kernel.
