Operational Implications of IPv6 Extension Headers (Fwd: [v6ops] I-D Action: draft-ietf-v6ops-ipv6-ehs-packet-drops-08.txt)
Hi, folks,

After almost 7+ years of working on this topic, our internet-draft
entitled Operational Implications of IPv6 Packets with Extension
has been approved for publication as an IETF RFC.

I believe it i? of value for folks working in security and/or network

Kudos to my co-authors for enduring the process, and to Nick Hilliard
who did the last push to get this one approved.
