Abstract The DSTM Ports Option provideprovides DSTM (Dual Stack Transition Mechanism) configuration information to DHCPv6 hosts. 1. Introduction This document describes the Ports Option for DHCPv6  that provide information for hosts using the "Dual Stack Transition Mechanism" (DSTM) . 2. Requirements The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 . 3. Terminology This document uses terminology specific to IPv6 and DHCPv6 as defined in section "Terminology" of the DHCPv6 specification. 4. DSTM Ports Option The DSTM Ports option carries a port range that is to be used for the associated IPv4-mapped IPv6 address in a DSTM Global IPv4 Address option.an IA_DSTM option . The format of the DSTM Ports option is: 0 1 2 3 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ | OPTION_DSTM_PORTS | option-length | +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ | start port | end port | +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ option-code: OPTION_DSTM_PORTS (TBD) option-length: 4 start port: The start port number for the associated IPv4- mapped IPv6 address. end port: The end port number for the associated IPv4- mapped IPv6 address. A DSTM Ports option MAY be encapsulated in the DSTM Global IPv4 Addressan IA_DSTM option  to specify the port range associted with the IPv4- mappedIPv4-mapped IPv6 address. A DSTM Ports option MUST NOT be used except when encapsulated in a DSTM Global IPv4 Address option.an IA_DSTM option . 5. Appearance of these options The DSTM Ports option MUST only appear in the options section of the following DHCP messages: Solicit, Advertise, Request, Confirm, Renew, Rebind, Decline, Release, Reply. The DSTM Ports option MUST only appearas an encapsulated option in a DSTM Global IPv4 Address option.an IA_DSTM option . 6. Security Considerations The DSTM Ports option may be used by an intruder DHCP server to assign an invalid port range to a DHCP client in a denial of service attack. To avoid this security hazard, a DHCP client MUST use authenticated DHCP to confirm that it is exchanging the DSTM options with an authorized DHCP server. 7. IANA Considerations IANA is requested to assign an option code to this option from the option-code space defined in section "DHCP Option" of the DHCPv6 specification .
