Last Call: <draft-ietf-sfc-nsh-18.txt> (Network Service Header (NSH)) to Proposed Standard
The IESG has received a request from the Service Function Chaining WG (sfc)
to consider the following document: - 'Network Service Header (NSH)'
<draft-ietf-sfc-nsh-18.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
[hidden email] mailing lists by 2017-08-25. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to [hidden email] instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of
the Subject line to allow automated sorting.
This document describes a Network Service Header (NSH) inserted onto
packets or frames to realize service function paths. NSH also
provides a mechanism for metadata exchange along the instantiated
service paths. NSH is the SFC encapsulation required to support the
Service Function Chaining (SFC) architecture (defined in RFC7665).
The document contains these normative downward references.
See RFC 3967 for additional information:
