2017-02-07 04:14:10 -0500 asked a question RFC7217 (stable-privacy IPv6 addresses) support in Fedora 25


I'm the author of RFC7217, and was checking Fedora 25's support for that RFC. I've checked it, and I'm glad it supports RFC7217.

I have the following questions:

1) By default, is it NetworkManager support of RFC7217 that is relevant? -- i.e., I'm aware that there's a kernel support/implementation since Linux kernel 4.0

2) Is there any way to change the secretkey ("stable secret") parameter from the expression in RFC7217? It seems that the kernel has sysctl's for this (e.g., net.ipv6.conf.all.stablesecret et al), but it seems it's not possible to read or write them. OTOH, not sure if it is possible to change the stable secret in NetworkManager, and if possible, not sure how.


Best regards, Fernando
