Segment Routing is a source routing technique that is being developed within the IETF. It changes the way packets are forwarded inside a network to enable network operators to have better control on the paths followed by packets.

This website is dedicated to the Linux implementation of IPv6 Segment Routing (SRv6) as defined in the IETF draft. It explains how to enable and use SRv6 on a Linux node, and provides guidelines about how to contribute to the development of SRv6.

For a brief technical description of SRv6 and its Linux implementation, feel free to read this paper.

SRv6 is currently being developed and maintained by David Lebrun at the IP Networking Lab at Université Catholique de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.

For contact and discussions, you can reach out on the mailing list.

A Cisco-maintained website about Segment Routing is also available at
