Ipg: A simple IPv6 address generator for lazy netadmins

In July 2019, an AS I manage was born. As long as I worked on the deployment of the network and its services, I tried many ways to generate the IPv6 addresses for each services. SLAAC, simple IPv6 addresses, based on the hostname and random ones. SLAAC addresses are OK but requires using EUI-64 to get a stable IPv6 address and it has the drawback of exposing the MAC address and potentially permits vendor-specific attacks.
