The Segment Routing over IPv6 (SRv6) Network Programming framework
enables a network operator or an application to specify a packet
processing program by encoding a sequence of instructions in the IPv6
packet header.

Each instruction is implemented on one or several nodes in the
network and identified by an SRv6 Segment Identifier in the packet.

This document defines the SRv6 Network Programming concept and
specifies the base set of SRv6 behaviors that enables the creation of
interoperable overlays with underlay optimization.

This document is a product of the Source Packet Routing in Networking 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 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
