Re: Privacy issues with IPv6?

That's only when using stateless autoconfig (SLACC), not when using static or stateful autoconfig (DHCPv6). Most OSs default to using privacy extensions when SLACC is in play (eg, outbound connections use a 2nd temporary and random IP that changes).

So no, no privacy issue.
