What is used in the EUI-64 process to create an IPv6 interface ID on an IPv6 enabled interface?
- the MAC address of the IPv6 enabled interface
- a randomly generated 64-bit hexadecimal address
- an IPv6 address that is provided by a DHCPv6 server
- an IPv4 address that is configured on the interface
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The EUI-64 process uses the MAC address of an interface to construct an interface ID (IID). Because the MAC address is only 48 bits in length, 16 additional bits (FF:FE) must be added to the MAC address to create the full 64-bit interface ID.
