OSPF Version 3 for IPv6


OSPF version 2, introduced as RFC 2328 in 1998, has been one of the most widely deployed interior gateway protocols (IGPs) for intradomain routing. The protocol is extended in version 3 (RFC 2740) to support OSPF in IPv6 networks. Most of the functionality of OSPFv2 carries over into OSPFv3, but there are some significant changes to explore.

OSPFv3 adds support for IPv6 in the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol, as detailed in RFC 2740.
