The IESG has received a request from the IPv6 Maintenance WG (6man) to consider the following document: - 'Routing packets from hosts in a multi-prefix network' <draft-ietf-6man-multi-homed-host-07.txt> as Proposed Standard The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the email@example.com mailing lists by 2016-08-04. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting. Abstract This document describes expected IPv6 host behavior in a scenario that has more than one prefix, each allocated by an upstream network that implements BCP 38 ingress filtering, when the host has multiple routers to choose from. It also applies to other scenarios such as the usage of stateful firewalls that effectively act as address-based filters. This host behavior may interact with source address selection in a given implementation, but logically follows it. Given that the network or host is, or appears to be, multihomed with multiple provider-allocated addresses, that the host has elected to use a source address in a given prefix, and that some but not all neighboring routers are advertising that prefix in their Router Advertisement Prefix Information Options, this document specifies to which router a host should present its transmission. It updates RFC 4861. The file can be obtained via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-6man-multi-homed-host/ IESG discussion can be tracked via https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-6man-multi-homed-host/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
