 Recommendations on filtering of IPv4 packets containing IPv4 options.
              draft-ietf-opsec-ip-options-filtering-05.txt

Abstract

   This document provides advice on the filtering of IPv4 packets based
   on the IPv4 options they contain.  Additionally, it discusses the
   operational and interoperability implications of dropping packets
   based on the IP options they contain.
