FYI. This is meant to solve the problem of host tracking and address

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
 This draft is a work item of the IPv6 Maintenance Working Group of the

        Title           : A method for Generating Stable Privacy-Enhanced
Addresses with IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC)
        Author(s)       : Fernando Gont
        Filename        : draft-ietf-6man-stable-privacy-addresses-01.txt
        Pages           : 17
        Date            : 2012-10-07

   This document specifies a method for generating IPv6 Interface
   Identifiers to be used with IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration
   (SLAAC), such that addresses configured using this method are stable
   within each subnet, but the Interface Identifier changes when hosts
   move from one network to another.  The aforementioned method is meant
   to be an alternative to generating Interface Identifiers based on
   IEEE identifiers, such that the benefits of stable addresses can be
   achieved without sacrificing the privacy of users.
