Because the Internet forwards packets according to the IP destination
address, packet forwarding typically takes place without inspection
of the source address and malicious attacks have been launched using
spoofed source addresses. In an effort to enhance the Internet with
IP source address validation, a prototype implementation of the IP
Source Address Validation Architecture (SAVA) was created and an
evaluation was conducted on an IPv6 network. This document reports
on the prototype implementation and the test results, as well as the
lessons and insights gained from experimentation. This memo defines an
Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
