                        draft-bonica-6man-oam-04

Abstract

   This document defines new IPv6 Operations and Management (OAM)
   capabilities.  In order to support these new capabilities, this
   document defines an IPv6 OAM Option and an ICMPv6 OAM message.

1.  Problem Statement

   This document defines new IPv6 [RFC8200] Operations and Management
   (OAM) capabilities.  In order to support these new capabilities, this
   document defines an IPv6 OAM Option and an ICMPv6 [RFC4443] OAM
   message.

2.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

3.  The OAM Option

   IPv6 source nodes use the OAM option to invoke one or more OAM
   actions on downstream devices.  The OAM option can be included in any
   of the following:

   o  A Hop-by-hop header.

   o  A Destination Options header that precedes a Routing header.

   o  A Destination Options header that precedes an upper-layer header.

   If a Hop-by-hop header includes an OAM option, OAM actions MAY be
   invoked on every node along the path to the destination, including
   the destination.  If a Destination Options header that precedes a
