1.  Introduction

   Segment Routing (SR) allows for a flexible definition of end-to-end
   paths within IGP topologies by encoding paths as sequences of
   topological sub-paths, called "segments".  These segments are
   advertised by the link-state routing protocols (IS-IS and OSPF).
   Prefix segments represent an ecmp-aware shortest-path to a prefix (or
   a node), as per the state of the IGP topology.  Adjacency segments
   represent a hop over a specific adjacency between two nodes in the
   IGP.  A prefix segment is typically a multi-hop path while an
   adjacency segment, in most of the cases, is a one-hop path.  SR's
   control-plane can be applied to both IPv6 and MPLS data-planes, and
   do not require any additional signaling (other than the regular IGP).
   For example, when used in MPLS networks, SR paths do not require any
   LDP or RSVP-TE signaling.  Still, SR can interoperate in the presence
   of LSPs established with RSVP or LDP .

   This draft describes the necessary OSPFv3 extensions that need to be
   introduced for Segment Routing.

   Segment Routing architecture is described in
   [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing].

   Segment Routing use cases are described in
   [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases].

2.  Segment Routing Identifiers

   Segment Routing defines various types of Segment Identifiers (SIDs):
   Prefix-SID, Adjacency-SID, LAN Adjacency SID and Binding SID.

2.1.  SID/Label sub-TLV

   SID/Label sub-TLV appears in multiple TLVs or Sub-TLVs defined later
   in this document.  It is used to advertise SID or label associated
   with the prefix or adjacency.  SID/Label TLV has following format:

   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   where:

      Type: TBD, suggested value 1

      Length: variable, 3 or 4 bytes

      SID/Label: if length is set to 3, then the 20 rightmost bits
      represent a label.  If length is set to 4 then the value
      represents a 32 bit SID.

      The receiving router MUST ignore SID/Label sub-TLV if the length
      is other then 3 or 4.

3.  Segment Routing Capabilities

   Segment Routing requires some additional capabilities of the router
   to be advertised to other routers in the area.

   These SR capabilities are advertised in OSPFv3 Router Information
   Opaque LSA (defined in [RFC4970]).

3.1.  SR-Algorithm TLV

   SR-Algorithm TLV is a TLV of Router Information Opaque LSA (defined
   in [RFC4970]).

   Router may use various algorithms when calculating reachability to
   other nodes in area or to prefixes attached to these nodes.  Examples
   of these algorithms are metric based Shortest Path First (SPF),
   various sorts of Constrained SPF, etc.  SR-Algorithm TLV allows a
   router to advertise algorithms that router is currently using to
   other routers in an area.  SR-Algorithm TLV has following structure:

   where:

      Type: TBD, suggested value 8

      Length: variable

      Algorithm: one octet identifying the algorithm.  The following
      value has been defined:

         0: IGP metric based SPT.

   RI LSA can be advertised at any of the defined flooding scopes (link,
   area, or autonomous system (AS)).  For the purpose of the SR-
   Algorithm TLV propagation area scope flooding is required.

3.2.  SID/Label Range TLV

   The SID/Label Range TLV is a TLV of Router Information Opaque LSA
   (defined in [RFC4970]).

   SID/Label Sub-TLV MAY appear multiple times and has following format:

    0                   1                   2                   3

   +                                                               +

      Length: variable

      Range Size: 3 octets of SID/label range

   Currently the only supported Sub-TLV is the SID/Label TLV as defined
   in Section 2.1.  SID/Label advertised in SID/Label TLV represents the
   first SID/Label from the advertised range.

   Multiple occurrence of the SID/Label Range TLV MAY be advertised, in
   order to advertise multiple ranges.  In such case:

   o  The originating router MUST encode each range into a different
      SID/Label Range TLV.

   o  The originating router decides in which order the set of SID/Label
      Range TLVs are advertised inside Router Information Opaque LSA.
      The originating router MUST ensure the order is same after a
      graceful restart (using checkpointing, non-volatile storage or any
      other mechanism) in order to guarantee the same order before and
      after graceful restart.

   o  Receiving router must adhere to the order in which the ranges are
      advertised when calculating a SID/label from the SID index.

   o  A router not supporting multiple occurrences SID/Label Range TLV
      MUST take into consideration the first occurrence in the received
      set.

   Here follows an example of advertisement of multiple ranges:






















Psenak, et al.           Expires January 3, 2015                [Page 6]


Internet-Draft    OSPFv3 Extensions for Segment Routing        July 2014


      The originating router advertises following ranges:
         Range 1: [100, 199]
         Range 2: [1000, 1099]
         Range 3: [500, 599]

      The receiving routers concatenate the ranges and build the SRGB
      is as follows:

      SRGB = [100, 199]
             [1000, 1099]
             [500, 599]

      The indexes span multiple ranges:

         index=0 means label 100
         ...
         index 99 means label 199
         index 100 means label 1000
         index 199 means label 1099
         ...
         index 200 means label 500
         ...

   RI LSA can be advertised at any of the defined flooding scopes (link,
   area, or autonomous system (AS)).  For the purpose of the SR-
   Capability TLV propagation area scope flooding is required.

4.  Prefix SID Identifier

   A new extended OSPFv3 LSAs as defined in
   [I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend] are used to advertise SID or label
   values associated with the prefix in OSPFv3.

4.1.  Prefix SID Sub-TLV

   The Prefix SID Sub-TLV is a Sub-TLV of the following OSPFv3 TLVs as
   defined in [I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend]:

      Intra-Area Prefix TLV

      Inter-Area Prefix TLV

      External Prefix TLV

   It MAY appear more than once and has following format:

   where:

      Type: TBD, suggested value 2.

      Length: variable

      Flags: 1 octet field.  The following flags are defined:

    0
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
   |N|P|M|E|V|L|   |
   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   where:

         N-Flag: Node-SID flag.  If set, then the Prefix-SID refers to
         the router identified by the prefix.  Typically, the N-Flag is
         set on Prefix-SIDs attached to a router loopback address.  The
         N-Flag is set when the Prefix-SID is a Node- SID as described
         in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing].

         P-Flag: no-PHP flag.  If set, then the penultimate hop MUST NOT
         pop the Prefix-SID before delivering the packet to the node
         that advertised the Prefix-SID.

         M-Flag: Mapping Server Flag.  If set, the SID is advertised
         from the Segment Routing Mapping Server functionality as
         described in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases].

         E-Flag: Explicit-Null Flag.  If set, any upstream neighbor of
         the Prefix-SID originator MUST replace the Prefix-SID with a
         Prefix-SID having an Explicit-NULL value (0 for IPv4) before
         forwarding the packet.

         The V-Flag: Value/Index Flag.  If set, then the Prefix-SID
         carries an absolute value.  If not set, then the Prefix-SID
         carries an index.

Internet-Draft    OSPFv3 Extensions for Segment Routing        July 2014


         The L-Flag: Local/Global Flag.  If set, then the value/index
         carried by the PrefixSID has local significance.  If not set,
         then the value/index carried by this subTLV has global
         significance.

         Other bits: MUST be zero when sent and ignored when received.

      Algorithm: one octet identifying the algorithm the Prefix-SID is
      associated with as defined in Section 3.1.

      Range Size: this field provides the ability to specify a range of
      addresses and their associated Prefix SIDs.  It represents a
      compression scheme to distribute a continuous Prefix and their
      continuous, corresponding SID/Label Block.  If a single SID is
      advertised then the Range Size field MUST be set to 1.  For range
      advertisements > 1, Range Size represents the number of addresses
      that need to be mapped into a Prefix-SID.

      SID/Index/Label: label or index value depending on the V-bit
      setting.

         Examples:

            A 32 bit global index defining the offset in the SID/Label
            space advertised by this router - in this case the V and L
            flags MUST be unset.

            A 24 bit local label where the 20 rightmost bits are used
            for encoding the label value - in this case the V and L
            flags MUST be set.

   If multiple Prefix-SIDs are advertised for the same prefix, the
   receiving router MUST use the first encoded SID and MAY use the
   subsequent ones.

   When propagating Prefix-SIDs between areas, if multiple prefix-SIDs
   are advertised for a prefix, an implementation SHOULD preserve the
   original ordering, when advertising prefix-SIDs to other areas.  This
   allows implementations that only use single Prefix-SID to have a
   consistent view across areas.

   When calculating the outgoing label for the prefix, the router MUST
   take into account E and P flags advertised by the next-hop router, if
   next-hop router advertised the SID for the prefix.  This MUST be done
   regardless of next-hop router contributing to the best path to the
   prefix or not.

   P-Flag (no-PHP) MUST be set on the Prefix-SIDs allocated to inter-
   area prefixes that are originated by the ABR based on intra-area or
   inter-area reachability between areas.  In case the inter-area prefix
   is generated based on the prefix which is directly attached to the
   ABR, P-Flag SHOULD NOT be set

   P-Flag (no-PHP) MUST NOT be set on the Prefix-SIDs allocated to
   redistributed prefixes, unless the redistributed prefix is directly
   attached to ASBR, in which case the P-Flag SHOULD NOT be set.

   If the P-flag is not set then any upstream neighbor of the Prefix-SID
   originator MUST pop the Prefix-SID.  This is equivalent to the
   penultimate hop popping mechanism used in the MPLS dataplane.  In
   such case MPLS EXP bits of the Prefix-SID are not preserved to the
   ultimate hop (the Prefix-SID being removed).  If the P-flag is unset
   the received E-flag is ignored.

   If the P-flag is set then:

      If the E-flag is not set then any upstream neighbor of the Prefix-
      SID originator MUST keep the Prefix-SID on top of the stack.  This
      is useful when the originator of the Prefix-SID must stitch the
      incoming packet into a continuing MPLS LSP to the final
      destination.  This could occur at an inter-area border router
      (prefix propagation from one area to another) or at an inter-
      domain border router (prefix propagation from one domain to
      another).

      If the E-flag is set then any upstream neighbor of the Prefix-SID
      originator MUST replace the PrefixSID with a Prefix-SID having an
      Explicit-NULL value.  This is useful, e.g., when the originator of
      the Prefix-SID is the final destination for the related prefix and
      the originator wishes to receive the packet with the original EXP
      bits.

   When M-Flag is set, P-flag MUST be set and E-bit MUST NOT be set.

   Example 1: if the following router addresses (loopback addresses)
   need to be mapped into the corresponding Prefix SID indexes:

             Router-A: 192::1/128, Prefix-SID: Index 1
             Router-B: 192::2/128, Prefix-SID: Index 2
             Router-C: 192::3/128, Prefix-SID: Index 3
             Router-D: 192::4/128, Prefix-SID: Index 4

   then the Address Prefix field in Intra-Area Prefix TLV, Inter-Area
   Prefix TLV or External Prefix TLV is set to 192::1, Prefix Length in

   these TLVs would be set to 128, Range Size in Prefix SID sub-TLV
   would be set to 4 and Index value would be set to 1.

   Example 2: If the following prefixes need to be mapped into the
   corresponding Prefix-SID indexes:

             10:1:1::0/120,   Prefix-SID: Index 51
             10:1:1::100/120, Prefix-SID: Index 52
             10:1:1::200/120, Prefix-SID: Index 53
             10:1:1::300/120, Prefix-SID: Index 54
             10:1:1::400/120, Prefix-SID: Index 55
             10:1:1::500/120, Prefix-SID: Index 56
             10:1:1::600/120, Prefix-SID: Index 57

   then the Address Prefix field in Intra-Area Prefix TLV, Inter-Area
   Prefix TLV or External Prefix TLV is set to 10:1:1::0, Prefix Length
   in these TLVs would be set to 120, Range Size in Prefix SID sub-TLV
   would be set to 7 and Index value would be set to 51.

4.2.  SID/Label Binding sub-TLV

   SID/Label Binding sub-TLV is used to advertise SID/Label mapping for
   a path to the prefix.

   The SID/Label Binding TLV MAY be originated by any router in an
   OSPFv3 domain.  The router may advertise a SID/Label binding to a FEC
   along with at least a single 'nexthop style' anchor.  The protocol
   supports more than one 'nexthop style' anchor to be attached to a
   SID/Label binding, which results into a simple path description
   language.  In analogy to RSVP the terminology for this is called an
   'Explicit Route Object' (ERO).  Since ERO style path notation allows
   to anchor SID/label bindings to both link and node IP addresses any
   label switched path, can be described.  Furthermore also SID/Label
   Bindings from external protocols can get easily re-advertised.

   The SID/Label Binding TLV may be used for advertising SID/Label
   Bindings and their associated Primary and Backup paths.  In one
   single TLV either a primary ERO Path, a backup ERO Path or both are
   advertised.  If a router wants to advertise multiple parallel paths
   then it can generate several TLVs for the same Prefix/FEC.  Each
   occurrence of a Binding TLV with respect with a given FEC Prefix has
   accumulating and not canceling semantics.

   SID/Label Binding sub-TLV is a sub-TLV of the following OSPFv3 TLVs,
   as defined in [I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend]:

      ERO sub-TLVs as defined in Section 4.2.2.

4.2.1.  ERO Metric sub-TLV

   ERO Metric sub-TLV is a Sub-TLV of the SID/Label Binding TLV.

   The ERO Metric sub-TLV carries the cost of an ERO path.  It is used
   to compare the cost of a given source/destination path.  A router
   SHOULD advertise the ERO Metric sub-TLV.  The cost of the ERO Metric
   sub-TLV SHOULD be set to the cumulative IGP or TE path cost of the
   advertised ERO.  Since manipulation of the Metric field may attract
   or distract traffic from and to the advertised segment it MAY be
   manually overridden.

4.2.2.  ERO sub-TLVs

   All 'ERO' information represents an ordered set which describes the
   segments of a path.  The last ERO sub-TLV describes the segment
   closest to the egress point, contrary the first ERO sub-TLV describes
   the first segment of a path.  If a router extends or stitches a path
   it MUST prepend the new segments path information to the ERO list.

   The above similarly applies to backup EROs.

   All ERO Sub-TLVs must immediately follow the (SID)/Label Sub-TLV.

   All Backup ERO sub-TLVs must immediately follow last ERO Sub-TLV.

   local to the router and therefore not unique within a domain.  All
   elements in an ERO path need to be unique within a domain and hence
   need to be disambiguated using a domain unique Router-ID.

5.1.  Adj-SID sub-TLV

   A new extended OSPFv3 LSAs, as defined in
   [I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend], are used to advertise prefix SID
   in OSPFv3

   Adj-SID sub-TLV is an optional sub-TLV of the Router-Link TLV as
   defined in [I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend].  It MAY appear multiple
   times in Router-Link TLV.  Examples where more than one Adj-SID may
   be used per neighbor are described in
   [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases].  The structure of the
   Adj-SID Sub-TLV is as follows:

         The V-Flag: Value/Index Flag.  If set, then the Prefix-SID
         carries an absolute value.  If not set, then the Prefix-SID
         carries an index.

         The L-Flag: Local/Global Flag.  If set, then the value/index
         carried by the PrefixSID has local significance.  If not set,

         then the value/index carried by this subTLV has global
         significance.

         The S-Flag.  Set Flag.  When set, the S-Flag indicates that the
         Adj-SID refers to a set of adjacencies (and therefore MAY be
         assigned to other adjacencies as well).

         Other bits: MUST be zero when originated and ignored when
         received.

      Weight: weight used for load-balancing purposes.  The use of the
      weight is defined in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing].

      SID/Index/Label: label or index value depending on the V-bit
      setting.

         Examples:

            A 32 bit global index defining the offset in the SID/Label
            space advertised by this router - in this case the V and L
            flags MUST be unset.

            A 24 bit local label where the 20 rightmost bits are used
            for encoding the label value - in this case the V and L
            flags MUST be set.

            16 octet IPv6 address - in this case the V-flag MUST be set.
            The L-flag MUST be set for link-local IPv6 address and MUST
            be unset for IPv6 global unicast address.

   A SR capable router MAY allocate an Adj-SID for each of its
   adjacencies and set the B-Flag when the adjacency is protected by a
   FRR mechanism (IP or MPLS) as described in
   [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases].

5.2.  LAN Adj-SID Sub-TLV

   LAN Adj-SID is an optional sub-TLV of the Router-Link TLV.  It MAY
   appear multiple times in Router-Link TLV.  It is used to advertise
   SID/Label for adjacency to non-DR node on broadcast or NBMA network.

6.  Elements of Procedure

6.1.  Intra-area Segment routing in OSPFv3

   The OSPFv3 node that supports segment routing MAY advertise Prefix-
   SIDs for any prefix that it is advertising reachability for (e.g.
   loopback IP address) as described in Section 4.1.

   If multiple routers advertise Prefix-SID for the same prefix, then
   the Prefix-SID MUST be the same.  This is required in order to allow
   traffic load-balancing if multiple equal cost paths to the
   destination exist in the network.

   Prefix-SID can also be advertised by the SR Mapping Servers (as
   described in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases]).  The
   Mapping Server advertises Prefix-SID for remote prefixes that exist
   in the network.  Multiple Mapping Servers can advertise Prefix-SID
   for the same prefix, in which case the same Prefix-SID MUST be
   advertised by all of them.  SR Mapping Server could use either area
   scope or autonomous system flooding scope when advertising Prefix SID
   for prefixes, based on the configuration of the SR Mapping Server.
   Depending on the flooding scope used, SR Mapping Server chooses the
   LSA that will be used.  If the area flooding scope is needed, E-
   Intra-Area-Prefix-LSA ([I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend]) is used.
   If autonomous system flooding scope is needed, E-AS-External-LSA
   ([I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend]) is used.





Psenak, et al.           Expires January 3, 2015               [Page 23]


Internet-Draft    OSPFv3 Extensions for Segment Routing        July 2014


   When Prefix-SID is advertised by the Mapping Server, which is
   indicated by the M-flag in the Prefix-SID sub-TLV (Section 4.1),
   route-type as indicated by the LSA type which is being used for
   flooding is ignored.  Prefix SID is bound to a prefix, in which case
   route-type becomes unimportant.

   Advertisement of the Prefix-SID by the Mapping Server using Inter-
   Area Prefix TLV, External Prefix TLV or Intra-Area-Prefix TLV
   ([I-D.ietf-ospf-ospfv3-lsa-extend]) does not itself contribute to the
   prefix reachability.  NU-bit MUST be set in the PrefixOptions field
   of the LSA which is used by the Mapping Server to advertise SID or
   SID range, which prevents such advertisement to contribute to the
   prefix reachability.

6.2.  Inter-area Segment routing in OSPFv3

   In order to support SR in a multi-area environment, OSPFv3 must
   propagate Prefix-SID information between areas.  The following
   procedure is used in order to propagate Prefix SIDs between areas.

   When an OSPFv3 ABR advertises a Inter-Area-Prefix-LSA from an intra-
   area prefix to all its connected areas, it will also include Prefix-
   SID sub-TLV, as described in Section 4.1.  The Prefix-SID value will
   be set as follows:

      The ABR will look at its best path to the prefix in the source
      area and find out the advertising router associated with its best
      path to that prefix.

      If no Prefix-SID was advertised for the prefix in the source area
      by the router that contributes to the best path to the prefix,
      then the ABR will use the Prefix-SID advertised by any other
      router (e.g.: a Prefix-SID coming from an SR Mapping Server as
      defined in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases]) when
      propagating Prefix-SID for the prefix to other areas.

   When an OSPFv3 ABR advertises Inter-Area-Prefix-LSA LSAs from an
   inter-area route to all its connected areas it will also include
   Prefix-SID sub-TLV, as described in Section 4.1.  The Prefix-SID
   value will be set as follows:

      The ABR will look at its best path to the prefix in the source
      area and find out the advertising router associated with its best
      path to that prefix.

      The ABR will then look if such router advertised a Prefix-SID for
      the prefix and use it when advertising the Prefix-SID to other
      connected areas.

Internet-Draft    OSPFv3 Extensions for Segment Routing        July 2014


      If no Prefix-SID was advertised for the prefix in the source area
      by the ABR that contributes to the best path to the prefix, the
      originating ABR will use the Prefix-SID advertised by any other
      router (e.g.: a Prefix-SID coming from an SR Mapping Server as
      defined in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases]) when
      propagating Prefix-SID for the prefix to other areas.

6.3.  SID for External Prefixes

   AS-External-LSAs are flooded domain wide.  When an ASBR, which
   supports SR, generates AS-External-LSA, it should also include
   Prefix-SID sub-TLV, as described in Section 4.1 Prefix-SID value will
   be set to the SID that has been reserved for that prefix.

   When a NSSA ASBR translates NSSA-LSA into AS-External-LSA, it should
   also advertise the Prefix-SID for the prefix.  The NSSA ABR
   determines its best path to the prefix advertised in the translated
   NSSA-LSA and finds the advertising router associated with such path.
   If such advertising router has advertised a Prefix-SID for the
   prefix, then the NSSA ASBR uses it when advertising the Prefix-SID in
   AS-External-LSA.  Otherwise the Prefix-SID advertised by any other
   router will be used (e.g.: a Prefix-SID coming from an SR Mapping
   Server as defined in [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing-use-cases]).

6.4.  Advertisement of Adj-SID

   The Adjacency Segment Routing Identifier (Adj-SID) is advertised
   using the Adj-SID Sub-TLV as described in Section 5.

6.4.1.  Advertisement of Adj-SID on Point-to-Point Links

   Adj-SID MAY be advertised for any adjacency on p2p link that is in a
   state 2-Way or higher.  If the adjacency on a p2p link transitions
   from the FULL state, then the Adj-SID for that adjacency MAY be
   removed from the area.  If the adjacency transitions to a state lower
   then 2-Way, then the Adj-SID MUST be removed from the area.

6.4.2.  Adjacency SID on Broadcast or NBMA Interfaces

   Broadcast or NBMA networks in OSPFv3 are represented by a star
   topology where the Designated Router (DR) is the central point all
   other routers on the broadcast or NBMA network connect to.  As a
   result, routers on the broadcast or NBMA network advertise only their
   adjacency to DR and BDR.  Routers that are neither DR nor BDR do not
   form and do not advertise adjacencies between them.  They, however,
   maintain a 2-Way adjacency state between them.

Internet-Draft    OSPFv3 Extensions for Segment Routing        July 2014


   When Segment Routing is used, each router on the broadcast or NBMA
   network MAY advertise the Adj-SID for its adjacency to DR using Adj-
   SID Sub-TLV as described in Section 5.1.

   SR capable router MAY also advertise Adj-SID for other neighbors
   (e.g.  BDR, DR-OTHER) on broadcast or NBMA network using the LAN ADJ-
   SID Sub-TLV as described in section 5.1.1.2.  Section 5.2.
