Abstract

This document describes a Network Service Header (NSH) imposed on packets or frames to realize service function paths. The NSH also provides a mechanism for metadata exchange along the instantiated service paths. The NSH is the SFC encapsulation required to support the Service Function Chaining (SFC) architecture (defined in RFC7665).
