This document specifies an IPv6 extension header for Service Function Chaining (SFC) purposes. This extension header is used by SFC data plane elements to make forwarding decisions in an IPv6-enabled SFC domain and it conveys metadata that are processed by SFC-aware nodes. This extension is intended to be used within a single administrative domain.
