Technical Summary This document specifies two extensions to HIP to implement multi-hop routing. The first extension allows implementing source routing in HIP. That is, a host sending a HIP packet can define a set of hosts that the HIP packet should traverse. The second extension allows a HIP packet to carry and record the list of hosts that forwarded it. Working Group Summary There was strong consensus on this document. Document Quality There are prototype implementations of this spec. A few vendors have expressed interest in implementing this in the context of HIP BONE overlays. Personnel David Ward is the document shepherd for this document. Ralph Droms is the responsible AD for this document.
