                  OSPF Extensions for Segment Routing


   Segment Routing (SR) allows a flexible definition of end-to-end paths
   within IGP topologies by encoding paths as sequences of topological
   subpaths called "segments".  These segments are advertised by the
   link-state routing protocols (IS-IS and OSPF).

1.  Introduction

   Segment Routing (SR) allows a flexible definition of end-to-end paths
   within IGP topologies by encoding paths as sequences of topological
   subpaths called "segments".  These segments are advertised by the
   link-state routing protocols (IS-IS and OSPF).  Prefix segments
   represent an ECMP-aware shortest path to a prefix (or a node), as per
   the state of the IGP topology.  Adjacency segments represent a hop
   over a specific adjacency between two nodes in the IGP.  A prefix
   segment is typically a multi-hop path while an adjacency segment, in
   most cases, is a one-hop path.  SR's control plane can be applied to
   both IPv6 and MPLS data planes, and it does not require any
   additional signaling (other than IGP extensions).  The IPv6 data
   plane is out of the scope of this specification; it is not applicable
   to OSPFv2, which only supports the IPv4 address family.  When used in
   MPLS networks, SR paths do not require any LDP or RSVP-TE signaling.
   However, SR can interoperate in the presence of LSPs established with
