When setting IPv6 addresses, we should do a Duplicate Address Detection.

Duplicate Address Detection goes as follows:

Over ICMPv6

  • Report to MLD well known multicast group (type 143)
    • Announce that we are assigning an IP address via multicast.
  • Send Neighbor Solicitation from :: (type 135)
    • Let everyone in multicast group know which IP address we are assigning
  • Listen for Neighbor Advertisement (type 136)
    • Listen on the mutlicast group for neighbors on the requested IP address
  • Leave multicast group if a duplicate address is found (type 143)
