|Published:||INTERNET DRAFT, 1997|
|Abstract:||This document presents an alternative addressing architecture for IPv6 which controls global routing growth by very aggressive topological aggregation. It includes support for scalable multi-homing as a distinguished service. It provides for future independent evolution of routing and forwarding models with essentially no impact on end systems. Finally, it frees sites and service resellers from the tyranny of CIDR-based aggregation by providing transparent re-homing of both.|
Describes a routing architecture for IPv6 in which location and
identification of end systems are separated.
Proposes an IPv6 address that contains a 6-byte 'Routing Goop' (a topological
locator encoding the global connectivity of a site), a 2-byte 'Site Topology
Partition' (internal routing information of the end system), and an 8-byte
'End System Designator' (identifies the end system or an interface of an end
