This note discusses a feature to support building Greynets for IPv4
A URL for this Internet-Draft is:
In the IPv6 case, I'm not sure I understand how the "honeypot" host
would know what addresses are unused, in networks where SLAAC is used.
I would expect that it would take the router's word that no responder
was found for the address.
Also, more of an editorial nature, I believe the layer 2 nitpicks
object to the use of "LAN" to mean "IP subnet," unless I missed
something. The IEEE definition of LAN makes it so in practice, these
days, the term only applies to the single link between the layer 2
switch and one host interface.
Gee, in a layer 3 context, I use the term "LAN" to mean a "Local Area
Network", a layer 2 domain, perhaps instantiated in a switch or a set
of them, that connects some number of layer 3 devices. Examples
include Ethernet domains, 802.11, 802.15.4, 802.16, 802.21, ...
How does the IEEE define a LAN?
I take your point that some of these probably should be translated to
