         BGP Prefix Origin Validation State Extended Community

Abstract

   This document defines a new BGP opaque extended community to carry
   the origination Autonomous System (AS) validation state inside an
   autonomous system.  Internal BGP (IBGP) speakers that receive this
   validation state can configure local policies that allow it to
   influence their decision process.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a new BGP opaque extended community to carry
   the origination AS validation state inside an autonomous system.
   IBGP speakers that receive this validation state can configure local
   policies that allow it to influence their decision process.
