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

This web site is dedicated to the implementation in the Linux kernel of the IPv6 dataplane for Segment Routing as defined in the IETF draft. In this web site, we provide a presentation of what is Segment Routing in general, a presentation of the IPv6 flavor, documentation on how to use our SR-IPv6 implementation, a virtual machine allowing you to easily play with SR-IPv6, and references to papers about SR.

SR-IPv6 is currently being developed 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
