Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) can be used to carry any network-
layer payload protocol over any network-layer delivery protocol.
Currently, GRE procedures are specified for IPv4, used as either the
payload or delivery protocol.  However, GRE procedures are not
specified for IPv6.

This document specifies GRE procedures for IPv6, used as either the
payload or delivery protocol.

This document is a product of the Internet Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
