OSPFv3 requires functional extension beyond what can readily be done

with the fixed-format Link State Advertisement (LSA) as described in

RFC 5340.  Without LSA extension, attributes associated with OSPFv3

links and advertised IPv6 prefixes must be advertised in separate

LSAs and correlated to the fixed-format LSAs.  This document extends

the LSA format by encoding the existing OSPFv3 LSA information in

Type-Length-Value (TLV) tuples and allowing advertisement of

additional information with additional TLVs.  Backward-compatibility

mechanisms are also described.

This document updates RFC 5340, "OSPF for IPv6", and RFC 5838,

"Support of Address Families in OSPFv3", by providing TLV-based

encodings for the base OSPFv3 unicast support and OSPFv3 address

family support.

This document is a product of the Open Shortest Path First IGP Working Group of 
the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
