Abstract

This document defines an Offset Indicating option (OI option) encapsulated within an IPv6 Options header. An OI option can provide offset information to locate the end of the IPv6 header chain so that a node receiving an IPv6 packet is able to skip over the IP header chain and access the transport header or other protocol data unit directly.
