NAME
       ip-token - tokenized interface identifer support

SYNOPSIS
       ip token	 { COMMAND | help }

       ip token { set } TOKEN dev DEV

       ip token { get } dev DEV

       ip token { list }

DESCRIPTION
       IPv6 tokenized interface identifer support is used for assigning well-
       known host-part addresses to nodes whilst still obtaining a global net‐
       work prefix from Router advertisements. The primary target for tok‐
       enized identifiers are server platforms where addresses are usually
       manually configured, rather than using DHCPv6 or SLAAC. By using tok‐
       enized identifiers, hosts can still determine their network prefix by
       use of SLAAC, but more readily be automatically renumbered should their
       network prefix change [1]. Tokenized IPv6 Identifiers are described in
       the draft [1]: <draft-chown-6man-tokenised-ipv6-identifiers-02>.

   ip token set - set an interface token
       set the interface token to the kernel. Once a token is set, it cannot
       be removed from the interface, only overwritten.

       TOKEN  the interface identifer token address.

       dev DEV
	      the networking interface.

   ip token get - get the interface token from the kernel
       show a tokenized interface identifer of a particular networking device.
       Arguments: coincide with the arguments of ip token set but the TOKEN
       must be left out.

   ip token list - list all interface tokens
       list all tokenized interface identifers for the networking interfaces
       from the kernel.
