Hi all,

Service chaining is an important function for all type of networks including those using the source routing paradigm as specified by the SPRING working group. This draft is especially focused on the SPRING/MPLS network scenario.

When we posted the early versions (-00 to -02), the feedback from the SFC working group chairs was that the solution required changes to the MPLS architecture. We discussed this among the authors and posted a new version (-03) that does not require any change to the MPLS Architecture anymore. Version -04 merely corrects some typos.

Now we would like to ask the SFC chairs and WGs if the draft can now be considered for adoption by the SFC working group.

Best regards,

> Abstract:
>    Source Packet Routing in Networking (SPRING) WG specifies a special
>    source routing mechanism.  Such source routing mechanism can be
>    leveraged to realize the service path layer functionality of the
>    service function chaining (i.e, steering traffic through a particular
>    service function path) by encoding the service function path or the
>    service function chain information as the explicit path information.
>    This document describes how to leverage the MPLS-based source routing
>    mechanism as developed by the SPRING WG to realize the service path
>    layer functionality of the service function chaining.
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
