identification in DHCP / RA) to Informational RFC

To: IETF-Announce <[email protected]>

The IESG has received a request from an individual submitter to consider
the following document:
- 'Captive-Portal identification in DHCP / RA'
  <draft-wkumari-dhc-capport-12.txt> as Informational RFC

The document got extensive review in DHC  OPSAWG and
elsewhere prior to the decision to AD-sponsor the draft.
An informal BOF was held and a mailing list subsequently created to
continue to explore the problem space more generally


The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
[email protected] mailing lists by 2015-07-07. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to [email protected] instead. In either case, please retain the
beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   In many environments offering short-term or temporary Internet access
   (such as coffee shops), it is common to start new connections in a
   captive portal mode.  This highly restricts what the customer can do
   until the customer has authenticated.

   This document describes a DHCP option (and a RA extension) to inform
   clients that they are behind some sort of captive portal device, and
   that they will need to authenticate to get Internet Access.
