IPv6 Stable Private Addresses RFC 7217
The next dhcpcd release will have support for IPv6 Stable Private
Addresses, RFC 7217.
In summary, this is designed as a replacement interface identifier for
the normal hardware derived one when using SLAAC.
By storing a persistent secret key and combing this with stable network
information such as prefix, ssid (if available), hardware address and a
dad_counter we can then take an interface identifier from a hash of the
above information combined.
The most basic goal is that the host is no longer track-able across
different networks based on their global address, but the address
remains stable on each network.
My question is this: should this be enabled by default as privacy is a
good thing, or should the normal hardware based address be kept?
