This document describes an interface selection mechanism that enables multiple interfaces (multihomed) IPv6 hosts to select their most appropriate egress interface to send data over the network. The mechanism extends the Neighbor Discovery (ND) protocol [RFC4861] with two new Router Advertisement options.
