Abstract

This document presents a method for applications to influence the IPv6 source selection algorithm used by the IP stack in a host. To do so, IPv6 prefixes are associated with meta-data when configured by the network. This meta-data allows the network to describe the purpose and properties of the prefix enabling applications to make intelligent decision when selecting a prefix.
