Routed protocols are often susceptible to spoof attacks.  The
canonical solution for IPv6 is Secure Neighbor Discovery (SEND), a
solution that is non-trivial to deploy.  This document proposes a
light-weight alternative and complement to SEND based on filtering in
the layer-2 network fabric, using a variety of filtering criteria,
including, for example, SEND status.  This document is not an Internet
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Operations Working Group of the IETF.
