NAME

       ip-token - tokenized interface identifier support

SYNOPSIS

       ip token  { COMMAND | help }

       ip token { set } TOKEN dev DEV

       ip token { get } dev DEV

       ip token { list }

DESCRIPTION

       IPv6 tokenized interface identifier support is used for assigning well-known host-part
       addresses to nodes whilst still obtaining a global network prefix from Router
       advertisements. The primary target for tokenized identifiers are server platforms where
       addresses are usually manually configured, rather than using DHCPv6 or SLAAC. By using
       tokenized 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 identifier token address.

       dev DEV
              the networking interface.

   ip token get - get the interface token from the kernel
       show a tokenized interface identifier 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 identifiers for the networking interfaces from the kernel.
