Protocol Action: Use of BGP-4 Multiprotocol Extensions for IPv6
Inter-Domain Routing to Proposed Standard 
Date: Wed, 18 Feb 1998 08:12:47

The IESG has approved the Internet-Draft 'Use of BGP-4 Multiprotocol
Extensions for IPv6 Inter-Domain Routing'
<draft-ietf-idr-bgp4-ipv6-01.txt> as a Proposed Standard. This document is
the product of the Inter-Domain Routing Working Group. The IESG contact
person is Joel Halpern.

Technical Summary 

This protocol specification defines the extensions to multi-protocol BGP-4 
required to support IPv6. It thereby provides the mechanisms need to have an 
inter-domain routing protocol for IPv6, with all of the proerties of BGP-4.

Working Group Summary

There was strong consensus in the working group in support of this document. 
Alternatives werediscussed, and this was agreed as the way forward.

Protocol Quality

The document has been reviewed for the IESG by Joel M. Halpern, the Routing 
Area Director. Use of this protocol has begun in multiple implementations.
