Summary0001145: IPv6 Support
DescriptionSince we all know that it's inevitable IPv6 will come into real production soon (well in 2 to 5 years), I guess it would be a wise idea to start looking at it, just to be ahead of the wave.

places needing fixing:
pf::config's _fetch_virtual_ip()

required IPv6 feature set :
- Implement NDP / RA filtering on switches supporting PACL but not RA-Guard (RFC 6105)
- Use NDPMon (similar to ARPWatch) for monitoring
- Enforce loose (counter-RA) or strict (+port shutdown) policy on rogue-RA detection
- Implement DHCPv6 snooping and/or stateless option server (coupled to 802.1x auth process)
- OS validation for IPv6 capabilities to eventually disable IPv6 trafic for incapable hosts (DHCPv6 only on 7 and Lion, RA-flood bug on XP...)

Adding a ping here. IPv6 is a reality for some of us and our NAC solution needs to be v6 aware. Is there a roadmap for v6 support?

We are now in active R&D phase for our new network control infrastructure, and pf is our 1st candidate.
However, the lack of ipv6 support is a serious issue for us.

We would be glad to contribute, if there is any ongoing tasks on the subject.
