OSPFv3 is defined in RFC 2740 and is the counterpart of OSPFv2, but is designed explicitly for the IPv6 routed protocol. The similarities shared by OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 are as follows:
- OSPFv3 continues to use the same packets that are also used by OSPFv2
- Neighbor discovery and the adjacency formation process are the same
- OSPFv3 still maintains RFC-compliant on different technologies
- Both OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 use the same LSA flooding and aging mechanisms
- Like OSPFv2, the OSPFv3 router ID still requires the use of a 32-bit IPv4 address . . .
