This specification defines a simple extension header format for Segment Routing based on the current definition of the Segment Routing extension header defined for IPv6. A Segment Identifier type field is added so that the segment list might contain values other than IPv6 addresses. Optional TLVs in the segment routing header are eliminated; Destination options that precede the routing header are sufficient. Two new destination options are defined: one for Routing header security and another to specify that certain destinations should process certain options.
