The Open Shortest Path First Version 2 (OSPFv2) does not have a
mechanism for a node to repel transit traffic if it is on the
shortest path. This document defines a bit (Host-bit) that enables a
router to advertise that it is a non-transit router." It also
describes the changes needed to support the H-bit in the domain. In
addition, this document updates RFC 6987 to advertise type-2 External
and NSSA LSAs with a high cost in order to repel traffic effectively.
