Neighbor Discovery and Stateless Autoconfiguration in IPv6
July/August 1999 (vol. 3 no. 4)
pp. 54-62

The prospect of an exhausted supply of address space in the current Internet Protocol, IPv4, prompted the IETF to start a next-generation IP project in the early 1990s. The resulting IPv6 offers a 128-bit address space and other upgrades that support the autoconfiguration of new hosts.
