DHCPv6 and the Trouble with MAC Addresses (Part 1 of 2)

DHCP in IPv4 has a taken-for-granted characteristic that provides it with powerful management flexibility: If you pull apart a DHCP header you find the MAC address of the host that originated the packet.  

This provides unambiguous identification of a host machine (or, more accurately, a particular interface on a host machine) and has been used for years in network operations to help facilitate everything from configuring fixed addresses in DHCP to provisioning processes, asset tracking, security policy enforcement.
