1.  Introduction

   SRv6 refers to Segment Routing instantiated on the IPv6 dataplane
   [RFC8402].

   SRv6 based BGP services refers to the Layer-3 and Layer-2 overlay
   services with BGP as control plane and SRv6 as dataplane.

   SRv6 SID refers to an SRv6 Segment Identifier as defined in
   [RFC8402].

   SRv6 Service SID refers to an SRv6 SID associated with one of the
   service-specific SRv6 Endpoint behaviors on the advertising Provider
   Edge (PE) router, such as (but not limited to), END.DT (Table lookup
   in a VRF) or END.DX (cross-connect to a nexthop) behaviors in the
   case of Layer-3 Virtual Private Network (L3VPN) service as defined in
   [RFC8986].

   To provide SRv6 service with best-effort connectivity, the egress PE
   signals an SRv6 Service SID with the BGP overlay service route.  The
   ingress PE encapsulates the payload in an outer IPv6 header where the
   destination address is the SRv6 Service SID provided by the egress
   Provider Edge (PE).  The underlay between the PEs only needs to
   support plain IPv6 forwarding [RFC8200].

   To provide SRv6 service in conjunction with an underlay SLA from the
   ingress PE to the egress PE, the egress PE colors the overlay service
   route with a Color Extended Community
   [I-D.ietf-idr-segment-routing-te-policy] for steering of flows for
   those routes as specified in section 8 of
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy].  The ingress PE
   encapsulates the payload packet in an outer IPv6 header with the
   segment list of SR policy associated with the related SLA along with
   the SRv6 Service SID associated with the route using the Segment
   Routing Header (SRH) [RFC8754].  The underlay nodes whose SRv6 SID's
   are part of the SRH segment list MUST support SRv6 data plane.

   BGP is used to advertise the reachability of prefixes of a particular
   service from an egress PE to ingress PE nodes.

   This document describes how existing BGP messages between PEs may
   carry SRv6 Service SIDs to interconnect PEs and form VPNs.

1.1.  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.

2.  SRv6 Services TLVs

   This document extends the use of the BGP Prefix-SID attribute
   [RFC8669] to carry SRv6 SIDs and their associated information with
   the BGP address-families that are listed further in this section.

   The SRv6 Service TLVs are defined as two new TLVs of the BGP Prefix-
   SID Attribute to achieve signaling of SRv6 SIDs for L3 and L2
   services.

   o  SRv6 L3 Service TLV: This TLV encodes Service SID information for
      SRv6 based L3 services.  It corresponds to the equivalent
      functionality provided by an MPLS Label when received with a Layer
      3 service route as defined in [RFC4364] [RFC4659] [RFC8950]
      [RFC9136].  Some SRv6 Endpoint behaviors which MAY be encoded, but
      not limited to, are End.DX4, End.DT4, End.DX6, End.DT6, etc.

   o  SRv6 L2 Service TLV: This TLV encodes Service SID information for
      SRv6 based L2 services.  It corresponds to the equivalent
      functionality provided by an MPLS Label1 for Ethernet VPN (EVPN)
      Route-Types as defined in [RFC7432].  Some SRv6 Endpoint behaviors
      which MAY be encoded, but not limited to, are End.DX2, End.DX2V,
      End.DT2U, End.DT2M etc.

   When an egress PE is enabled for BGP Services over SRv6 data-plane,
   it signals one or more SRv6 Service SIDs enclosed in SRv6 Service
   TLV(s) within the BGP Prefix-SID Attribute attached to MP-BGP NLRIs
   defined in [RFC4760] [RFC4659] [RFC8950] [RFC7432] [RFC4364]
   [RFC9136] where applicable as described in Section 5 and Section 6.

   The support for BGP Multicast VPN (MVPN) Services [RFC6513] with SRv6
   is outside the scope of this document.

   The following depicts the SRv6 Service TLVs encoded in the BGP
   Prefix-SID Attribute:

   o  TLV Type (1 octet): This field is assigned values from the IANA
      registry "BGP Prefix-SID TLV Types".  It is set to 5 for SRv6 L3
      Service TLV.  It is set to 6 for SRv6 L2 Service TLV.

   o  TLV Length (2 octets): Specifies the total length, in octets, of
      the TLV Value.

   o  RESERVED (1 octet): This field is reserved; it SHOULD be set to 0

   o  SRv6 Service Sub-TLVs (variable): This field contains SRv6 Service
      related information and is encoded as an unordered list of Sub-
      TLVs whose format is described below.

   A BGP speaker receiving a route containing BGP Prefix-SID Attribute
   with one or more SRv6 Service TLVs observes the following rules when
   advertising the received route to other peers:

   o  if the nexthop is unchanged during the advertisement, the SRv6
      Service TLVs, including any unrecognized Types of Sub-TLV and Sub-
      Sub-TLV, SHOULD be propagated further.  In addition, all Reserved
      fields in the TLV or Sub-TLV or Sub-Sub-TLV MUST be propagated
      unchanged.

   o  if the nexthop is changed, the TLVs, Sub-TLVs, and Sub-Sub-TLVs
      SHOULD be updated with the locally allocated SRv6 SID information.
      Any unrecognized received Sub-TLVs and Sub-Sub-TLVs MUST be
      removed.

   o  SRv6 Service Data Sub-Sub-TLV Type (1 octet): This field is set to
      1 to represent SRv6 SID Structure Sub-Sub-TLV.

   o  SRv6 Service Data Sub-Sub-TLV Length (2 octets): This field
      contains a total length of 6 octets.

   o  Locator Block Length (1 octet): Contains the length of SRv6 SID
      Locator Block in bits.

   o  Locator Node Length (1 octet): Contains the length of SRv6 SID
      Locator Node in bits.

   o  Function Length (1 octet): Contains the length of SRv6 SID
      Function in bits.

   o  Argument Length (1 octet): Contains the length of SRv6 SID
      Argument in bits.

   o  Transposition Length (1 octet): Size in bits for the part of SID
      that has been transposed (or shifted) into a label field

   o  Transposition Offset (1 octet): The offset position in bits for
      the part of SID that has been transposed (or shifted) into a label
      field.

   Section 4 describes mechanisms for signaling of the SRv6 Service SID
   by transposing a variable part of the SRv6 SID value and carrying
   them in existing label fields to achieve more efficient packing of
   those service prefix NLRIs in BGP update messages.  The SRv6 SID
   Structure Sub-Sub-TLV contains appropriate length fields when the
   SRv6 Service SID is signaled in split parts to enable the receiver to
   put together the SID accurately.

Internet-Draft       SRv6 BGP based Overlay Services       November 2021


   Transposition Offset indicates the bit position and Transposition
   Length indicates the number of bits that are being taken out of the
   SRv6 SID value and put into high order bits of label field.  The bits
   that have been shifted out MUST be set to 0 in the SID value.

   Transposition Length of 0 indicates nothing is transposed and that
   the entire SRv6 SID value is encoded in the SID Information Sub-TLV.
   In this case, the Transposition Offset MUST be set to 0.

   The size of the label field limits the bits transposed from the SRv6
   SID value into it.  E.g., the size of label field in [RFC4364]
   [RFC8277] is 20 bits while in [RFC7432] is 24 bits.

   As an example, consider that the sum of the Locator Block and the
   Locator Node parts is 64.  For an SRv6 SID where the entire Function
   part of size 16 bits is transposed, then the transposition offset is
   set to 64 and the transposition length is set to 16.  While for an
   SRv6 SID where the Function length is 24 bits and only the lower
   order 20 bits are transposed (e.g. due to the limit of the label
   field size), then the transposition offset is set to 68 and the
   transposition length is set to 20.

   BGP speakers that do not support this specification may misinterpret,
   on the reception of an SRv6-based BGP service route update, the part
   of the SRv6 SID encoded in label field(s) as MPLS label values for
   MPLS-based services.  Implementations supporting this specification
   SHOULD provide a mechanism to control the advertisement of SRv6-based
   BGP service routes on a per-neighbor and per-service basis.  The
   details of deployment designs and implementation options are outside
   the scope of this document.

   Arguments MAY be generally applicable for SIDs of only specific SRv6
   Endpoint behaviors (e.g., End.DT2M) and therefore the Argument length
   MUST be set to 0 for SIDs where the Argument is not applicable.

4.  Encoding SRv6 SID Information

   The SRv6 Service SID(s) for a BGP Service Prefix are carried in the
   SRv6 Services TLVs of the BGP Prefix-SID Attribute.

   For certain types of BGP Services like L3VPN where a per-VRF SID
   allocation is used (i.e., End.DT4 or End.DT6 behaviors), the same SID
   is shared across multiple NLRIs thus providing efficient packing.
   However, for certain other types of BGP Services like EVPN VPWS where
   a per-PW SID allocation is required (i.e., End.DX2 behavior), each
   NLRI would have its own unique SID thereby resulting in inefficient
   packing.

   To achieve efficient packing, this document allows the encoding of
   the SRv6 Service SID either as a whole in the SRv6 Services TLVs or
   the encoding of only the common part of the SRv6 SID (e.g., Locator)
   in the SRv6 Services TLVs and encoding the variable (e.g., Function
   or Argument parts) in the existing label fields specific to that
   service encoding.  This later form of encoding is referred to as the
   Transposition Scheme where the SRv6 SID Structure Sub-Sub-TLV
   describes the sizes of the parts of the SRv6 SID and also indicates
   the offset of the variable part along with its length in SRv6 SID
   value.  The use of the Transposition Scheme is RECOMMENDED for the
   specific service encodings that allow it as described further in
   Section 5 and Section 6.

   As an example, for the EVPN VPWS service prefix described further in
   Section 6.1.2, the Function part of the SRv6 SID is encoded in the
   MPLS Label field of the NLRI and the SID value in the SRv6 Services
   TLV carries only the Locator part with the SRv6 SID Structure Sub-
   Sub-TLV.  The SRv6 SID Structure Sub-Sub-TLV defines the lengths of
   Locator Block, Locator Node, and Function parts (Arguments are not
   applicable for the End.DX2 behavior).  Transposition Offset indicates
   the bit position and Transposition Length indicates the number of
   bits that are being taken out of the SID and put into the label
   field.

   In yet another example, for the EVPN Ethernet A-D per Ethernet
   Segment (ES) route described further in Section 6.1.1, only the
   Argument of the SID needs to be signaled.  This Argument part of the
   SRv6 SID MAY be transposed in the Ethernet Segment Identifier (ESI)
   Label field of the ESI Label Extended Community and the SID value in
   the SRv6 Services TLV is set to 0 along with the inclusion of SRv6
   SID Structure Sub-Sub-TLV.  The SRv6 SID Structure Sub-Sub-TLV
   defines the lengths of Locator Block, Locator Node, Function and
   Argument parts.  The offset and length of the Argument part SID value
   moved to label field is set in transposition offset and length of SID
   structure TLV.  The receiving router is then able to put together the
   entire SRv6 Service SID (e.g., for the End.DT2M behavior) placing the
   label value received in the ESI Label field of the Ethernet A-D per
   ES route into the correct transposition offset and length in the SRv6
   SID with the End.DT2M behavior received for an EVPN Route Type 3
   value.

5.  BGP based L3 Service over SRv6

   BGP egress nodes (egress PEs) advertise a set of reachable prefixes.
   Standard BGP update propagation schemes [RFC4271], which may make use
   of route reflectors [RFC4456], are used to propagate these prefixes.
   BGP ingress nodes (ingress PEs) receive these advertisements and may
   add the prefix to the RIB in an appropriate VRF.

Internet-Draft       SRv6 BGP based Overlay Services       November 2021


   Egress PEs which supports SRv6 based L3 services advertises overlay
   service prefixes along with a Service SID enclosed in an SRv6 L3
   Service TLV within the BGP Prefix-SID Attribute.  This TLV serves two
   purposes - first, it indicates that the egress PE supports SRv6
   overlay and the BGP ingress PE receiving this route MUST choose to
   perform IPv6 encapsulation and optionally insert an SRH [RFC8754]
   when required; second, it indicates the value of the Service SID to
   be used in the encapsulation.

   The Service SID thus signaled only has local significance at the
   egress PE, where it may be allocated or configured on a per-CE or
   per-VRF basis.  In practice, the SID may encode a cross-connect to a
   specific Address Family table (END.DT) or next-hop/interface (END.DX)
   as defined in [RFC8986].

   The SRv6 Service SID SHOULD be routable within the AS of the egress
   PE and serves the dual purpose of providing reachability between
   ingress PE and egress PE while also encoding the SRv6 Endpoint
   behavior.

   When steering for SRv6 services is based on shortest path forwarding
   (e.g., best-effort or IGP Flexible Algorithm
   [I-D.ietf-lsr-flex-algo]) to the egress PE, the ingress PE
   encapsulates the payload in an outer IPv6 header where the
   destination address is the SRv6 Service SID associated with the
   related BGP route update.  Therefore, the ingress PE SHOULD perform
   resolvability check for the SRv6 Service SID before considering the
   received prefix for the BGP best path computation.  The result of an
   SRv6 Service SID resolvability (e.g., when provided via IGP Flexible
   Algorithm) can be ignored if the ingress PE has a local policy that
   allows an alternate steering mechanism to reach the egress PE.  The
   details of such steering mechanisms are outside the scope of this
   document.

   For service over SRv6 core, the egress PE sets the next-hop to one of
   its IPv6 addresses.  Such an address MAY be covered by the SRv6
   Locator from which the SRv6 Service SID is allocated.  The next-hop
   is used for tracking the reachability of the egress PE based on
   existing BGP procedures.

   When the BGP route is received at an ingress PE is colored with a
   Color Extended community and a valid SRv6 Policy is available, the
   steering for service flows is performed as described in Section 8 of
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy].  When the ingress PE
   determines (with the help of SRv6 SID Structure) that the Service SID
   belongs to the same SRv6 Locator as the last SRv6 SID (of the egress
   PE) in the SR Policy segment list, it MAY exclude that last SRv6 SID
   when steering the service flow.  For example, the effective segment

5.1.  IPv4 VPN Over SRv6 Core

   The MP_REACH_NLRI over SRv6 core is encoded according to IPv4 VPN
   Over IPv6 Core defined in [RFC8950].

   Label field of IPv4-VPN NLRI is encoded as specified in [RFC8277]
   with the 20-bit Label Value set to the whole or a portion of the
   Function part of the SRv6 SID when the Transposition Scheme of
   encoding (Section 4) is used and otherwise set to Implicit NULL.
   When using the Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be
   less than or equal to 20 and less than or equal to the Function
   Length.

   SRv6 Service SID is encoded as part of the SRv6 L3 Service TLV.  The
   SRv6 Endpoint behavior of the SRv6 SID is entirely up to the
   originator of the advertisement.  In practice, the SRv6 Endpoint
   behavior is End.DX4 or End.DT4.

5.2.  IPv6 VPN Over SRv6 Core

   The MP_REACH_NLRI over SRv6 core is encoded according to IPv6 VPN
   over IPv6 Core is defined in [RFC4659].

   Label field of the IPv6-VPN NLRI is encoded as specified in [RFC8277]
   with the 20-bit Label Value set to the whole or a portion of the
   Function part of the SRv6 SID when the Transposition Scheme of
   encoding (Section 4) is used and otherwise set to Implicit NULL.
   When using the Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be
   less than or equal to 20 and less than or equal to the Function

6.  BGP based Ethernet VPN (EVPN) over SRv6

   [RFC7432] provides an extendable method of building an Ethernet VPN
   (EVPN) overlay.  It primarily focuses on MPLS based EVPNs and
   [RFC8365] extends to IP-based EVPN overlays.  [RFC7432] defines Route
   Types 1, 2, and 3 which carry prefixes and MPLS Label fields; the
   Label fields have a specific use for MPLS encapsulation of EVPN
   traffic.  Route Type 5 carrying MPLS label information (and thus
   encapsulation information) for EVPN is defined in [RFC9136].  Route
   Types 6, 7, and 8 are defined in [I-D.ietf-bess-evpn-igmp-mld-proxy].

   o  Ethernet Auto-discovery Route (Route Type 1)

   o  MAC/IP Advertisement Route (Route Type 2)

   o  Inclusive Multicast Ethernet Tag Route (Route Type 3)

   o  Ethernet Segment route (Route Type 4)

   o  IP prefix route (Route Type 5)

   o  Selective Multicast Ethernet Tag route (Route Type 6)

   o  IGMP join sync route (Route Type 7)

   o  IGMP leave sync route (Route Type 8)

   The specifications for other EVPN Route Types are outside the scope
   of this document.

   To support SRv6 based EVPN overlays, one or more SRv6 Service SIDs
   are advertised with Route Type 1, 2, 3, and 5.  The SRv6 Service
   SID(s) per Route Type are advertised in SRv6 L3/L2 Service TLVs
   within the BGP Prefix-SID Attribute.  Signaling of SRv6 Service
   SID(s) serves two purposes - first, it indicates that the BGP egress
   device supports SRv6 overlay and the BGP ingress device receiving
   this route MUST perform IPv6 encapsulation and optionally insert an
   SRH [RFC8754] when required; second, it indicates the value of the
   Service SID(s) to be used in the encapsulation.

   The SRv6 Service SID SHOULD be routable within the AS of the egress
   PE and serves the dual purpose of providing reachability between
   ingress PE and egress PE while also encoding the SRv6 Endpoint
   behavior.

   When steering for SRv6 services is based on shortest path forwarding
   (e.g., best-effort or IGP Flexible Algorithm
   [I-D.ietf-lsr-flex-algo]) to the egress PE, the ingress PE
   encapsulates the payload in an outer IPv6 header where the
   destination address is the SRv6 Service SID associated with the
   related BGP route update.  Therefore, the ingress PE SHOULD perform
   resolvability check for the SRv6 Service SID before considering the
   received prefix for the BGP best path computation.  The result of an
   SRv6 Service SID resolvability (e.g., when provided via IGP Flexible
   Algorithm) can be ignored if the ingress PE has a local policy that
   allows an alternate steering mechanism to reach the egress PE.  The
   details of such steering mechanisms are outside the scope of this
   document.

   For service over SRv6 core, the egress PE sets the next-hop to one of
   its IPv6 addresses.  Such an address MAY be covered by the SRv6
   Locator from which the SRv6 Service SID is allocated.  The next-hop
   is used for tracking the reachability of the egress PE based on
   existing BGP procedures.

   When the BGP route is received at an ingress PE is colored with a
   Color Extended community and a valid SRv6 Policy is available, the
   steering for service flows is performed as described in Section 8 of
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy].  When the ingress PE
   determines (with the help of SRv6 SID Structure) that the Service SID
   belongs to the same SRv6 Locator as the last SRv6 SID (of the egress
   PE) in the SR Policy segment list, it MAY exclude that last SRv6 SID
   when steering the service flow.  For example, the effective segment
   list of the SRv6 Policy associated with SID list <S1, S2, S3> would
   be <S1, S2, S3-Service-SID>.

6.1.  Ethernet Auto-discovery Route over SRv6 Core

   Ethernet Auto-Discovery (A-D) routes are Route Type 1 defined in
   [RFC7432] and may be used to achieve split-horizon filtering, fast
   convergence, and aliasing.  EVPN Route Type 1 is also used in EVPN-
   VPWS as well as in EVPN flexible cross-connect; mainly used to
   advertise point-to-point services ID.

   As a reminder, EVPN Route Type 1 is encoded as follows:

6.1.1.  Ethernet A-D per ES Route

   Ethernet A-D per ES route NLRI encoding over SRv6 core is as per
   [RFC7432].

   The 24-bit ESI label field of the ESI label extended community
   carries the whole or a portion of the Argument part of the SRv6 SID
   when the ESI filtering approach is used along with the Transposition
   Scheme of encoding (Section 4) and otherwise set to Implicit NULL
   value in the high order 20 bits (i.e., 0x000030).  When using the
   Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be less than or
   equal to 24 and less than or equal to the Argument Length.

   A Service SID enclosed in an SRv6 L2 Service TLV within the BGP
   Prefix-SID attribute is advertised along with the A-D route.  The
   SRv6 Endpoint behavior of the Service SID thus signaled is entirely
   up to the originator of the advertisement.  When the ESI filtering
   approach is used, the Service SID is used to signal Arg.FE2 SID
   Argument for applicable End.DT2M behavior [RFC8986].  When the local-
   bias approach [RFC8365] is used, the Service SID MAY be of value 0.

6.1.2.  Ethernet A-D per EVI Route

   Ethernet A-D per EVI route NLRI encoding over SRv6 core is similar to
   [RFC7432] and [RFC8214] with the following change:

   o  MPLS Label: 24-bit field carries the whole or a portion of the

   EVPN Route Type 2 is used to advertise unicast traffic MAC+IP address
   reachability through MP-BGP to all other PEs in a given EVPN
   instance.

      the high order 20 bits (i.e., 0x000030).  When using the
      Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be less than
      or equal to 24 and less than or equal to the Function Length.

   A Service SID enclosed in an SRv6 L2 Service TLV within the BGP
   Prefix-SID attribute is advertised along with the route.  The SRv6
   Endpoint behavior of the Service SID thus signaled is entirely up to
   the originator of the advertisement.  In practice, the SRv6 Endpoint
   behavior is END.DX2 or END.DT2U.

6.2.2.  MAC/IP Advertisement Route with MAC+IP

   o  MPLS Label1: Is associated with the SRv6 L2 Service TLV.  This
      24-bit field carries the whole or a portion of the Function part
      of the SRv6 SID when the Transposition Scheme of encoding
      (Section 4) is used and otherwise set to Implicit NULL value in
      the high order 20 bits (i.e., 0x000030).  When using the
      Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be less than
      or equal to 24 and less than or equal to the Function Length.

   o  MPLS Label2: Is associated with the SRv6 L3 Service TLV.  This
      24-bit field carries the whole or a portion of the Function part
      of the SRv6 SID when the Transposition Scheme of encoding
      (Section 4) is used and otherwise set to Implicit NULL value in
      the high order 20 bits (i.e., 0x000030).  When using the
      Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be less than
      or equal to 24 and less than or equal to the Function Length.

   An L2 Service SID enclosed in an SRv6 L2 Service TLV within the BGP
   Prefix-SID attribute is advertised along with the route.  In
   addition, an L3 Service SID enclosed in an SRv6 L3 Service TLV within
   the BGP Prefix-SID attribute MAY also be advertised along with the
   route.  The SRv6 Endpoint behavior of the Service SID(s) thus

Internet-Draft       SRv6 BGP based Overlay Services       November 2021


   signaled is entirely up to the originator of the advertisement.  In
   practice, the SRv6 Endpoint behavior is END.DX2 or END.DT2U for the
   L2 Service SID, and END.DT6/4 or END.DX6/4 for the L3 Service SID.

6.3.  Inclusive Multicast Ethernet Tag Route over SRv6 Core

   EVPN Route Type 3 is used to advertise multicast traffic reachability
   information through MP-BGP to all other PEs in a given EVPN instance.

   As a reminder, EVPN Route Type 3 is encoded as follows:

                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  RD (8 octets)                        |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Ethernet Tag ID (4 octets)           |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  IP Address Length (1 octet)          |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Originating Router's IP Address      |
                  |          (4 or 16 octets)             |
                  +---------------------------------------+


   NLRI encoding over SRv6 core is similar to [RFC7432].

   PMSI Tunnel Attribute [RFC6514] is used to identify the P-tunnel used
   for sending broadcast, unknown unicast, or multicast (BUM) traffic.
   The format of PMSI Tunnel Attribute is encoded as follows over SRv6
   Core:

                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Flag (1 octet)                       |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Tunnel Type (1 octet)                |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  MPLS label (3 octet)                 |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Tunnel Identifier (variable)         |
                  +---------------------------------------+


   o  Flag: zero value defined per [RFC7432]

   o  Tunnel Type: defined per [RFC6514]

   o  MPLS label: This 24-bit field carries the whole or a portion of
      the Function part of the SRv6 SID when ingress replication is used
      and the Transposition Scheme of encoding (Section 4) is used and

      otherwise, it is set as defined in [RFC6514].  When using the
      Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be less than
      or equal to 24 and less than or equal to the Function Length.

   o  Tunnel Identifier: IP address of egress PE

   A Service SID enclosed in an SRv6 L2 Service TLV within the BGP
   Prefix-SID attribute is advertised along with the route.  The SRv6
   Endpoint behavior of the Service SID thus signaled, is entirely up to
   the originator of the advertisement.  In practice, the SRv6 Endpoint
   behavior of the SRv6 SID is as follows:

   o  END.DT2M behavior.

   o  When ESI-based filtering is used for Multi-Homing or E-Tree
      procedures, the ESI Filtering Argument (the Arg.FE2 notation
      introduced in [RFC8986]) of the Service SID carried along with
      EVPN Route Type 1 route SHOULD be merged with the applicable
      End.DT2M SID of Type 3 route advertised by remote PE by doing a
      bit-wise logical-OR operation to create a single SID on the
      ingress PE.  Details of split-horizon ESI-based filtering
      mechanisms for multihoming are described in [RFC7432].  Details of
      filtering mechanisms for Leaf-originated BUM traffic in EVPN
      E-Tree services are provided in [RFC8317].

   o  When "local-bias" is used as the Multi-Homing split-horizon
      method, the ESI Filtering Argument SHOULD NOT be merged with the
      corresponding End.DT2M SID on the ingress PE.  Details of the
      "local-bias" procedures are described in [RFC8365].

   Usage of multicast trees as P-tunnels is outside the scope of this
   document.

6.4.  Ethernet Segment Route over SRv6 Core

   As a reminder, an Ethernet Segment route (i.e., EVPN Route Type 4) is
   encoded as follows:

                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  RD (8 octets)                        |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Ethernet Tag ID (4 octets)           |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  IP Address Length (1 octet)          |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Originating Router's IP Address      |
                  |          (4 or 16 octets)             |
                  +---------------------------------------+


   NLRI encoding over SRv6 core is similar to [RFC7432].

   SRv6 Service TLVs within the BGP Prefix-SID attribute are not
   advertised along with this route.  The processing of the route has
   not changed - it remains as described in [RFC7432].

6.5.  IP Prefix Route over SRv6 Core

   EVPN Route Type 5 is used to advertise IP address reachability
   through MP-BGP to all other PEs in a given EVPN instance.  The IP
   address may include a host IP prefix or any specific subnet.

   As a reminder, EVPN Route Type 5 is encoded as follows:

                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  RD (8 octets)                        |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |Ethernet Segment Identifier (10 octets)|
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  Ethernet Tag ID (4 octets)           |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  IP Prefix Length (1 octet)           |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  IP Prefix (4 or 16 octets)           |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  GW IP Address (4 or 16 octets)       |
                  +---------------------------------------+
                  |  MPLS Label (3 octets)                |
                  +---------------------------------------+


   NLRI encoding over SRv6 core is similar to [RFC7432] with the
   following change:

   o  MPLS Label: This 24-bit field carries the whole or a portion of
      the Function part of the SRv6 SID when the Transposition Scheme of



Dawra, et al.             Expires May 14, 2022                 [Page 20]


Internet-Draft       SRv6 BGP based Overlay Services       November 2021


      encoding (Section 4) is used and otherwise set to Implicit NULL
      value in the high order 20 bits (i.e., 0x000030).  When using the
      Transposition Scheme, the Transposition Length MUST be less than
      or equal to 24 and less than or equal to the Function Length.

   SRv6 Service SID is encoded as part of the SRv6 L3 Service TLV.  The
   SRv6 Endpoint behavior of the SRv6 SID is entirely up to the
   originator of the advertisement.  In practice, the SRv6 Endpoint
   behavior is End.DT4/6 or End.DX4/6.

6.6.  EVPN Multicast Routes (Route Types 6, 7, 8) over SRv6 Core

   These routes do not require the advertisement of SRv6 Service TLVs
   along with them.  Similar to EVPN Route Type 4, the BGP Nexthop is
   equal to the IPv6 address of egress PE.

7.  Implementation Status

   [Note to RFC Editor: This section needs to be removed before
   publication as RFC.]

   The [I-D.matsushima-spring-srv6-deployment-status] describes the
   current deployment and implementation status of SRv6 which also
   includes the BGP services over SRv6 as specified in this document.

8.  Error Handling

   In case of any errors encountered while processing SRv6 Service TLVs,
   the details of the error SHOULD be logged for further analysis.

   If multiple instances of SRv6 L3 Service TLV is encountered, all but
   the first instance MUST be ignored.

   If multiple instances of SRv6 L2 Service TLV is encountered, all but
   the first instance MUST be ignored.

   An SRv6 Service TLV is considered malformed in the following cases:

   o  the TLV Length is less than 1

   o  the TLV Length is inconsistent with the length of BGP Prefix-SID
      attribute

   o  at least one of the constituent Sub-TLVs is malformed

   An SRv6 Service Sub-TLV is considered malformed in the following
   cases:




Dawra, et al.             Expires May 14, 2022                 [Page 21]


Internet-Draft       SRv6 BGP based Overlay Services       November 2021


   o  the Sub-TLV Length is inconsistent with the length of the
      enclosing SRv6 Service TLV

   An SRv6 SID Information Sub-TLV is considered malformed in the
   following cases:



      *  the Sub-TLV Length is less than 21

      *  the Sub-TLV Length is inconsistent with the length of the
         enclosing SRv6 Service TLV

      *  at least one of the constituent Sub-Sub-TLVs is malformed

   An SRv6 Service Data Sub-Sub-TLV is considered malformed in the
   following cases:

   o  the Sub-Sub-TLV Length is inconsistent with the length of the
      enclosing SRv6 service Sub-TLV

   Any TLV or Sub-TLV or Sub-Sub-TLV is not considered malformed because
   its Type is unrecognized.

   Any TLV or Sub-TLV or Sub-Sub-TLV is not considered malformed because
   of failing any semantic validation of its Value field.

   SRv6 overlay service requires Service SID for forwarding.  The treat-
   as-withdraw action [RFC7606] MUST be performed when at least one
   malformed SRV6 Service TLV is present in the BGP Prefix-SID
   attribute.

   SRv6 SID value in SRv6 SID Information Sub-TLV is invalid when SID
   Structure Sub-Sub-TLV transposition length is greater than the number
   of bits of the label field or addition of transposition offset and
   length is greater than 128.  The transposition offset and length MUST
   be 0 when the Sub-Sub-TLV is advertised along with routes where
   transposition scheme is not applicable (e.g., for Global IPv6 Service
   [RFC2545] where there is no label field).  The path having such
   Prefix-SID Attribute should be ineligible during the selection of the
   best path for the corresponding prefix.

9.1.  BGP Prefix-SID TLV Types Registry

   This document introduces two new TLV Types of the BGP Prefix-SID
   attribute.  IANA has assigned Type values in the registry "BGP
   Prefix-SID TLV Types" as follows:

       Value     Type                    Reference
       --------------------------------------------
       4       Deprecated              <this document>
       5       SRv6 L3 Service TLV     <this document>
       6       SRv6 L2 Service TLV     <this document>

   The value 4 previously corresponded to the SRv6-VPN SID TLV, which
   was specified in previous versions of this document and used by early
   implementations of this specification.  It was deprecated and
   replaced by the SRv6 L3 Service and SRv6 L2 Service TLVs.

9.2.  SRv6 Service Sub-TLV Types Registry

   IANA is requested to create and maintain a new registry called "SRv6
   Service Sub-TLV Types" under the "Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
   Parameters" registry.  The allocation policy for this registry is:

      0 : Reserved
      1-127 : IETF Review
      128-254 : First Come First Served
      255 : Reserved

   The following Sub-TLV Type is defined in this document:

      Value     Type                            Reference
       ----------------------------------------------------
       1         SRv6 SID Information Sub-TLV    <this document>

9.3.  SRv6 Service Data Sub-Sub-TLV Types Registry

   IANA is requested to create and maintain a new registry called "SRv6
   Service Data Sub-Sub-TLV Types" under the "Border Gateway Protocol
   (BGP) Parameters" registry.  The allocation policy for this registry
   is:

      0 : Reserved
      1-127 : IETF Review
      128-254 : First Come First Served
      255 : Reserved

   The following Sub-Sub-TLV Type is defined in this document:

       ----------------------------------------------------
       1         SRv6 SID Structure Sub-Sub-TLV    <this document>

9.4.  BGP SRv6 Service SID Flags Registry

   IANA is requested to create and maintain a new registry called "BGP
   SRv6 Service SID Flags" under the "Border Gateway Protocol (BGP)
   Parameters" registry.  The allocation policy for this registry is
   IETF Review and all 8 bit positions of the flags are currently
   unassigned.

10.  Security Considerations

   This document specifies extensions to BGP protocol for signaling of
   services for SRv6.  As such, techniques related to authentication of
   BGP sessions for securing messages between BGP peers as discussed in
   the BGP specification [RFC4271] and, in the security analysis for BGP
   [RFC4272] apply.  The discussion of the use of the TCP Authentication
   option to protect BGP sessions is found in [RFC5925], while [RFC6952]
   includes an analysis of BGP keying and authentication issues.

   This document does not introduce new services or BGP NLRI types but
   extends the signaling of existing ones for SRv6.  Therefore, the
   security considerations for the respective BGP services [RFC8950]
   [RFC4659] [RFC2545] [RFC7432] [RFC9136] also apply.

   SRv6 operates within a trusted SR domain with filtering of traffic at
   the domain boundaries.  These and other security aspects of SRv6 are
   discussed in the security considerations of [RFC8402] [RFC8754] and
   apply for the deployment of BGP services using SRv6.  The SRv6 SIDs
   used for the BGP Services in this document are defined in [RFC8986]
   and hence the security considerations of that document also apply.
   The service flows between PE routers using SRv6 SIDs advertised via
   BGP are expected to be limited within the trusted SR domain (e.g.,
   within a single AS or between multiple ASes within a single provider
   network).  Therefore, precaution is necessary to ensure that the BGP
   service information (including associated SRv6 SID) advertised via
   BGP sessions are limited to peers within this trusted SR domain.  The
   security consideration section of [RFC8669] discusses mechanisms to
   prevent leaking of BGP Prefix-SID attribute, that carries SRv6 SID,
   outside the SR domain.  If these filtering mechanisms, both in the
   forwarding and control plane, are not implemented properly, it may be
   possible for nodes outside the SR domain to learn the VPN Service
   SIDs and use them to direct traffic into VPN networks from outside
   the SR domain.
