...uhm, and? What is the real difference with a IPv4 address and privacy?
You can tell as much (more or less) with a port scan to a IPv4
address...and someone will always track the "ID" (I guess that is what I
call IP address).
If we are talking about the EUI64, that will disclose the vendor but
hardly the make and model number....
