Technical Summary This document describes mechanisms to provide authentication/confidentiality to OSPFv3 using IPv6 AH/ESP Extension Header. In Open Shortest Path First - Version 3 (OSPFv3) for IPv6, authentication fields have been removed from the OSPF headers. When running over IPv6, OSPF relies on the IPv6 Authentication Header (AH) and IPv6 Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) to ensure integrity, authentication and/or confidentiality of routing exchanges. Working Group Summary There was consensus within the working group to publish this document on the Standards track. Protocol Quality Bill Fenner reviewed this document for the IESG.
