Is this functionality already available in Vista and Leopard?
I ignore whether the "privacy extension of stateless
autoconfiguration" of RFC 4941 is supported.
It is supported in XP/Vista, and used by default for outgoing connections.
It is supported by Linux, but outgoing connections default to the EUI64
address. Not sure about OSX.
The "one new address per outgoing connection" rule, which I
propose here for the fist time, would IMHO be worth implementing
in addition to RFC 4941.
But some more work to specify it in details would be needed
Some support of the idea would be a prerequisite.
It would be interesting to write it down, and to see what
would break if the IP stack acquired and provided a fresh
v6 address to every new connection. Maybe nothing would
break, which would be great.
RFC 5014 already specifies an API to control privacy extensions.
