Service Function Chaining (SFC) uses the Network Service Header (NSH)
(RFC 8300) to steer and provide context metadata (MD) with each
packet. Such metadata can be of various types, including MD Type 2,
consisting of Variable-Length Context Headers. This document
specifies several such Context Headers that can be used within a
Service Function Path (SFP).

This document is a product of the Service Function Chaining Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
