FYI -------- Forwarded Message -------- Subject: Last Call: <draft-wkumari-dhc-capport-12.txt> (Captive-Portal identification in DHCP / RA) to Informational RFC Date: Tue, 09 Jun 2015 06:00:35 -0700 From: The IESG <[email protected]> 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 https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/captive-portals - 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. Abstract 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. The file can be obtained via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-wkumari-dhc-capport/ IESG discussion can be tracked via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-wkumari-dhc-capport/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
