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
