Draft RFC on IPv6 Host Scanning

Hi Folks.  Fernando Gont wrote a short draft RFC on IPv6 host scanning:

http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-gont-opsec-ipv6-host-scanning-00.txt

The focus is on predicting IPv6 addresses using patterns in the way
they are constructed/allocated, not other IPv6 discovery techniques.
Nmap is mentioned and cited.  The ideas aren't new, but he does a good
job summarizing and citing relevant research.  I learned some
interesting tidbits, such as the way VMWare ESX can include 16 bits of
IPv4 address in its generates MAC address, which then can get included
in autoconfigured IPv6 addresses.

Cheers,
Fyodor
