23.  How is formed an IPv6 address?

We already know that an IPv6 address has 128 bits. The lowest 64 bits identify a specific interface, and are designated as "interface identifier".

The highest 64 bits point out the "path" or the "prefix" of the network or router in one of the links in which such interface is connected.

The IPv6 address, is consequently formed, combining the prefix with the interface identifier.
