      Source-Address-Dependent Routing and Source Address Selection              for IPv6 Hosts: Overview of the Problem Space


   This document presents the source-address-dependent routing (SADR)    problem space from the host's perspective.  Both multihomed hosts and    hosts with multiple interfaces are considered.  Several network    architectures are presented to illustrate why source address    selection and next-hop resolution are needed in view of    source-address-dependent routing.

   The document is scoped on identifying a set of scenarios for    source-address-dependent routing from the host's perspective and    analyzing a set of solutions to mitigate encountered issues.  The    document does not make any solution recommendations.
