Technical Summary This document specifies a mechanism to transport OSPFv3 packets over IPv4 routing domain using the existing OSPFv3 Address Family extension. It simplifies transition from an OSPFv2 IPv4-only routing domain to an OSPFv3 dual-stack routing domain. It updates RFC 5838 to support virtual links in the IPv4 unicast address family when using OSPFv3 over IPv4. Working Group Summary This document brings in deployment benefit with little change to OSPFv3 protocol and no impact to IPv4 transport. It received strong support for WG acceptance. There has not been any more comments since WGLC. Document Quality Most questions were raised and addressed during the I.D stage. Since then the draft is stable, without changes to the technical solution for more than six months. Personnel Wenhu Lu is the Document Shepherd. Alia Atlas is the Responsible Area Director.
