L2TPv3, as defined in [RFC3931], provides a mechanism for tunneling Layer 2 (L2) "circuits" across a packet-oriented data network (e.g., over IP), with multiple attachment circuits multiplexed over a single pair of IP address endpoints (i.e., a tunnel) using the L2TPv3 Session ID as a circuit discriminator.

   This document describes a tunnel encapsulation for Ethernet over IPv6    with a mandatory 64-bit cookie for connecting Layer 2 (L2) Ethernet    attachment circuits identified by IPv6 addresses.  The encapsulation    is based on the Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol Version 3 (L2TPv3) over IP    and does not use the L2TPv3 control plane.
