Abstract : This report presents a model for the NAP protocol, dedicated to the auto-configuration of IPv6 routers. If the auto-configuration of hosts is defined by IPv6 and mandatory, IPv6 routers still have to be manually configured. In order to succeed in new networking domains, a full auto-configuration feature must be offered. NAP offers a fully distributed solution that uses a link state OSPFv3-like approach to perform prefix collision detection and avoidance. In this report, we present a model for NAP and analyze the average and maximum autoconfiguration delay as a function of the network size and the prefix space size.
