Summary:  Jool is an Open Source implementation of IPv4/IPv6 Translation on Linux.
SIIT (Stateless IP/ICMP Translation) and NAT64 ("NAT six four", not "NAT
sixty-four") are technologies meant to communicate networking nodes which
only speak IPv4 with nodes that only speak IPv6.

The idea is basically that of an "upgraded" NAT; an "IPv4/IPv6 translator"
not only replaces addresses and/or ports within packets, but also
layer 3 headers.

 * SIIT is the simpler form, and allows preconfigured 1-to-1 mappings
   between IPv4 addresses and IPv6 addresses.

 * A Stateful NAT64 (or NAT64 for short) allows several IPv6 nodes to
   dynamically share few IPv4 addresses (useful when you're a victim of
   IPv4 address exhaustion).

For historic reasons, sometimes we mess up and label SIIT as "Stateless
NAT64". Because this expression does not seem to appear in any relevant
standards, we consider it imprecise, despite the fact it makes some degree
of sense. If possible, please try to suppress it.
