OSPFv3 is a candidate for deployments in environments where
autoconfiguration is a requirement.  One such environment is the IPv6
home network where users expect to simply plug in a router and have
it automatically use OSPFv3 for intra-domain routing.  This document
describes the necessary mechanisms for OSPFv3 to be self-configuring.
This document updates RFC 5340 by relaxing the HelloInterval/
RouterDeadInterval checking during OSPFv3 adjacency formation and
adding hysteresis to the update of self-originated Link State
Advertisements (LSAs).

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
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
