IEEE802]. These include MAC (Media Access Control) identifiers and protocol identifiers. This document specifies IANA considerations for the assignment of code points under the IANA OUI. It also discusses several other uses by the IETF of IEEE 802 code points and provides some values for use in documentation. As noted in [RFC2606] and [RFC5737], the use of designated code values reserved for documentation and examples reduces the likelihood of conflicts and confusion arising from their duplication of code points assigned for some deployed use. [RFC5226] is incorporated herein except where there are contrary provisions in this document. In this document, "IESG Ratification" is used in some cases, and it is specified in Section 5.1. This is not the same as "IESG Approval" in [RFC5226]. 802.3] link is from the lowest order bit to the highest order bit (i.e., the reverse of the IETF's ordering). In this document: "AFN" stands for Address Family Number [RFC4760]. "EUI" stands for Extended Unique Identifier. "IAB" stands for Individual Address Block, not for Internet Architecture Board. "MAC" stands for Media Access Control, not for Message Authentication Code. "OUI" stands for Organizationally Unique Identifier. "RRTYPE" stands for a DNS Resource Record type [RFC6895]. "**" indicates exponentiation. For example, 2**24 is two to the twenty-fourth power.
RFC5342] on the theory they would make bookkeeping easier for IANA but they have proved to be problematic in practice. o Re-casted informational material about relevant IEEE assignment policies to take into account [RAC-OUI]. o Added AFNs and RRTYPEs for 48-bit and 64-bit MACs. http://standards.ieee.org/regauth/ Anyone may apply to that Authority for parameters. They may impose fees or other requirements but commonly waive fees for applications from standards development organizations. A list of some assignments and their holders is downloadable from the IEEE Registration Authority site. Section 2.1 discusses EUI-48 (Extended Unique Identifier 48) MAC identifiers, their relationship to OUIs and other prefixes, and assignments under the IANA OUI. Section 2.2 extends this to EUI-64 identifiers. Section 2.3 discusses other IETF MAC identifier use not under the IANA OUI.
[RAC-OUI] indicates that the IEEE Registration Authority Committee is exploring the feasibility of defining a new "EUI-128" identifier. RAC-OUI]. The IEEE describes its assignment procedures and policies for IEEE 802-related identifiers in [802_O&A], which is being revised. Two bits within the initial octet of an EUI-48 have special significance in MAC addresses: the Group bit (01) and the Local bit (02). OUIs and longer MAC prefixes are assigned with the Local bit zero and the Group bit unspecified. Multicast identifiers may be constructed by turning on the Group bit, and unicast identifiers may be constructed by leaving the Group bit zero. The Local bit is zero for globally unique EUI-48 identifiers assigned by the owner of an OUI or owner of a longer prefix. If the Local bit is a one, the identifier has been considered by IEEE 802 to be a local identifier under the control of the local network administrator; however, there may be emerging recommendations from the IEEE Registration Authority on management of the local address space. If the Local bit is on, the holder of an OUI has no special authority over MAC identifiers whose first 3 octets correspond to their OUI. An AFN and a DNS RRTYPE have been assigned for 48-bit MAC addresses (see Section 5.2). Section 1.4 above. This includes 2**24 EUI-48 multicast identifiers from 01-00-5E-00-00-00 to 01-00-5E-FF-FF-FF and 2**24 EUI-48 unicast identifiers from 00-00-5E-00-00-00 to 00-00-5E-FF-FF-FF.
Of these EUI-48 identifiers, the sub-blocks reserved or thus far assigned by IANA for purposes of documentation are as follows: Unicast, all blocks of 2**8 addresses thus far: 00-00-5E-00-00-00 through 00-00-5E-00-00-FF: reserved and require IESG Ratification for assignment (see Section 5.1). 00-00-5E-00-01-00 through 00-00-5E-00-01-FF: assigned for the Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) [RFC5798]. 00-00-5E-00-02-00 through 00-00-5E-00-02-FF: assigned for the IPv6 Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (IPv6 VRRP) [RFC5798]. 00-00-5E-00-52-00 through 00-00-5E-00-52-FF: used for very small assignments. Currently, 3 out of these 256 values have been assigned. 00-00-5E-00-53-00 through 00-00-5E-00-53-FF: assigned for use in documentation. Multicast: 01-00-5E-00-00-00 through 01-00-5E-7F-FF-FF: 2**23 addresses assigned for IPv4 multicast [RFC1112]. 01-00-5E-80-00-00 through 01-00-5E-8F-FF-FF: 2**20 addresses assigned for MPLS multicast [RFC5332]. 01-00-5E-90-00-00 through 01-00-5E-90-00-FF: 2**8 addresses being used for very small assignments. Currently, 4 out of these 256 values have been assigned. 01-00-5E-90-10-00 through 01-00-5E-90-10-FF: 2**8 addresses for use in documentation. For more detailed and up-to-date information, see the "Ethernet Numbers" registry at http://www.iana.org.
Section 5.4) must meet the following requirements: o must be for standards purposes (either for an IETF Standard or other standard related to IETF work), o must be for a power-of-two size block of identifiers starting at a boundary that is an equal or greater power of two, including the assignment of one (2**0) identifier, o must not be used to evade the requirement for vendors to obtain their own block of identifiers from the IEEE, and o must be documented in an Internet-Draft or RFC. In addition, approval must be obtained as follows (see the procedure in Section 5.1): Small to medium assignments of a block of 1, 2, 4, ..., 32768, 65536 (2**0, 2**1, 2**2, ..., 2**15, 2**16) EUI-48 identifiers require Expert Review (see Section 5.1). Large assignments of 131072 (2**17) or more EUI-48 identifiers require IESG Ratification (see Section 5.1). ([RFC5342] had a requirement for parallel unicast and multicast assignments under some circumstances even when one of the types was not included in the application. That requirement has proved impractical and is eliminated in this document.) Section 2.2.1 o In IEEE Std 1394 (also known as FireWire and i.Link) o In IEEE Std 802.15.4 (also known as ZigBee) o In [InfiniBand]
Adding a 5-octet (40-bit) extension to a 3-octet (24-bit) OUI, or a shorter extension to longer assigned prefixes [RAC-OUI] so as to total 64 bits, produces an EUI-64 identifier under that OUI or longer prefix. As with EUI-48 identifiers, the first octet has the same Group and Local bits. An AFN and a DNS RRTYPE have been assigned for 64-bit MAC addresses (see Section 5.2). The discussion below is almost entirely in terms of the "Modified" form of EUI-64 identifiers; however, anyone assigned such an identifier can also use the unmodified form as a MAC identifier on any link that uses such 64-bit identifiers for interfaces. Section 2.5.1 and Appendix A of [RFC4291] and Appendix A of [RFC5214]). When so used, the MAC-64 is modified by inverting the Local/Global bit to form an IETF "Modified EUI-64 identifier". Below is an illustration of a Modified EUI-64 unicast identifier under the IANA OUI, where aa-bb-cc-dd-ee is the extension. 02-00-5E-aa-bb-cc-dd-ee The first octet is shown as 02 rather than 00 because, in Modified EUI-64 identifiers, the sense of the Local/Global bit is inverted compared with EUI-48 identifiers. It is the globally unique values (universal scope) that have the 02 bit on in the first octet, while those with this bit off are locally assigned and out of scope for global assignment. The Local/Global bit was inverted to make it easier for network operators to type in local-scope identifiers. Thus, such Modified EUI-64 identifiers as 1, 2, etc. (ignoring leading zeros) are local. Without the modification, they would have to be 02-00-00-00-00-00-00-01, 02-00-00-00-00-00-00-02, etc. to be local. As with MAC-48 identifiers, the 01 bit on in the first octet indicates a group identifier. When the first two octets of the extension of a Modified EUI-64 identifier are FF-FE, the remainder of the extension is a 24-bit value as assigned by the OUI owner for an EUI-48. For example: 02-00-5E-FF-FE-yy-yy-yy or 03-00-5E-FF-FE-yy-yy-yy
where yy-yy-yy is the portion (of an EUI-48 global unicast or multicast identifier) that is assigned by the OUI owner (IANA in this case). Thus, any holder of one or more EUI-48 identifiers under the IANA OUI also has an equal number of Modified EUI-64 identifiers that can be formed by inserting FF-FE in the middle of their EUI-48 identifiers and inverting the Local/Global bit. (Note: [EUI-64] defines FF-FF as the bits to be inserted to create an IEEE EUI-64 identifier from a MAC-48 identifier. That document says the FF-FE value is used when starting with an EUI-48 identifier. The IETF uses only FF-FE to create Modified EUI-64 identifiers from 48-bit Ethernet station identifiers regardless of whether they are EUI-48 or MAC-48 local identifiers. EUI-48 and local MAC-48 identifiers are syntactically equivalent, and this doesn't cause any problems in practice.) In addition, certain Modified EUI-64 identifiers under the IANA OUI are reserved for holders of IPv4 addresses as follows: 02-00-5E-FE-xx-xx-xx-xx where xx-xx-xx-xx is a 32-bit IPv4 address. The owner of an IPv4 address has both the unicast- and multicast-derived EUI-64 address. Modified EUI-64 identifiers from 02-00-5E-FE-F0-00-00-00 to 02-00-5E-FE-FF-FF-FF-FF are effectively reserved pending the specification of IPv4 Class E addresses. However, for Modified EUI-64 identifiers based on an IPv4 address, the Local/Global bit should be set to correspond to whether the IPv4 address is local or global. (Keep in mind that the sense of the Modified EUI-64 identifier Local/Global bit is reversed from that in (unmodified) MAC-64 identifiers.)

IANA EUI-64 identifier assignments under the IANA OUI must meet the following requirements: o must be for standards purposes (either for an IETF Standard or other standard related to IETF work), o must be for a power-of-two size block of identifiers starting at a boundary that is an equal or greater power of two, including the assignment of one (2**0) identifier, o must not be used to evade the requirement for vendors to obtain their own block of identifiers from the IEEE, and o must be documented in an Internet-Draft or RFC. In addition, approval must be obtained as follows (see the procedure in Section 5.1): Small to medium assignments of a block of 1, 2, 4, ..., 134217728, 268435456 (2**0, 2**1, 2**2, ..., 2**27, 2**28) EUI-64 identifiers require Expert Review (see Section 5.1). Assignments of any size, including 536870912 (2**29) or more EUI-64 identifiers, may be made with IESG Ratification (see Section 5.1).
RFC5737], and the MAC-derived addresses are based on the EUI-48 documentation addresses above.

In all of these identifiers, the Group bit (the bottom
bit of the first octet) is on, as is required to work properly with existing hardware as a multicast identifier. They also have the Local bit on and are used for this purpose in IPv6 networks. (Historical note: It was the custom during IPv6 design to use "3" for unknown or example values, and 3333 Coyote Hill Road, Palo Alto, California, is the address of PARC (Palo Alto Research Center, formerly "Xerox PARC"). Ethernet was originally specified by the Digital Equipment Corporation, Intel Corporation, and Xerox Corporation. The pre-IEEE [802.3] Ethernet protocol has sometimes been known as "DIX" Ethernet from the first letters of the names of these companies.) RFC2153] declared the 3-octet values from CF-00-00 through CF-FF-FF to be OUIs available for assignment by IANA to software vendors for use in PPP [RFC1661] or for other uses where vendors do not otherwise need an IEEE-assigned OUI. It should be noted that, when used as MAC-48 prefixes, these values have the Local and Group bits on, while all IEEE-assigned OUIs thus far have those bits off. The Group bit is meaningless in PPP. To quote [RFC2153]: "The 'CF0000' series was arbitrarily chosen to match the PPP NLPID 'CF', as a matter of mnemonic convenience." CF-00-00 is reserved, and IANA lists multicast identifier CF-00-00-00-00-00 as used for Ethernet loopback tests. In over a decade of availability, only a handful of values in the 'CF Series' have been assigned. (See "Ethernet Numbers" <http://www.iana.org/assignments/ethernet-numbers> and "PPP Numbers" <http://www.iana.org/assignments/ppp-numbers>). RFC2153] were updated as follows by the approval of [RFC5342] (no technical changes were made at that time): o Use of these identifiers based on IANA assignment was deprecated. o IANA was instructed not to assign any further values in the 'CF Series'.
802_O&A] world, tags are a fixed length and do not include any encoding of their own length. Any device that is processing a frame cannot, in general, safely process anything in the frame past an Ethertype it does not understand. An example is the C-Tag (formerly the Q-Tag) [802.1Q]. It provides customer VLAN and priority information for a frame. There are two types of protocol identifier parameters that can occur in Ethernet frames after the initial MAC-48 destination and source identifiers: Ethertypes: These are 16-bit identifiers appearing as the initial two octets after the MAC destination and source (or after a tag), which, when considered as an unsigned integer, are equal to or larger than 0x0600. LSAPs: These are 8-bit protocol identifiers that occur in pairs immediately after an initial 16-bit (two-octet) remaining frame length, which is in turn after the MAC destination and source (or after a tag). Such a length must, when considered as an unsigned integer, be less than 0x5DC, or it could be mistaken as an Ethertype. LSAPs occur in pairs where one is intended to indicate the source protocol handler and one the destination protocol handler; however, use cases where the two are different have been relatively rare. Neither Ethertypes nor LSAPs are assigned by IANA; they are assigned by the IEEE Registration Authority (see Section 1.3 above and Appendix B). However, both LSAPs and Ethertypes have extension mechanisms so that they can be used with five-octet Ethernet protocol identifiers under an OUI, including those assigned by IANA under the IANA OUI.
When using the IEEE 802 Logical Link Control (LLC) format (Subnetwork Access Protocol (SNAP)) [802_O&A] for a frame, an OUI-based protocol identifier can be expressed as follows: xx-xx-AA-AA-03-yy-yy-yy-zz-zz where xx-xx is the frame length and, as above, must be small enough not to be confused with an Ethertype; "AA" is the LSAP that indicates this use and is sometimes referred to as the SNAP Service Access Point (SAP); "03" is the LLC control octet indicating datagram service; yy-yy-yy is an OUI; and zz-zz is a protocol number, under that OUI, assigned by the OUI owner. The odd five-octet length for such OUI-based protocol identifiers was chosen so that, with the LLC control octet ("03"), the result is 16-bit aligned. When using an Ethertype to indicate the main type for a frame body, the special "OUI Extended Ethertype" 88-B7 is available. Using this Ethertype, a frame body can begin with 88-B7-yy-yy-yy-zz-zz where yy-yy-yy and zz-zz have the same meaning as in the SNAP format described above. It is also possible, within the SNAP format, to use an arbitrary Ethertype. Putting the Ethertype as the zz-zz field after an all- zeros OUI (00-00-00) does this. It looks like xx-xx-AA-AA-03-00-00-00-zz-zz where zz-zz is the Ethertype. (Note that, at this point, the 802 protocol syntax facilities are sufficiently powerful that they could be chained indefinitely. Whether support for such chaining is generally required is not clear, but [802_O&A] requires support for xx-xx-AA-AA-03-00-00-00-88-B7-yy-yy-yy-zz-zz although this could be more efficiently expressed by simply pinching out the "00-00-00-88-B7" in the middle.) As well as labeling frame contents, 802 protocol types appear within NBMA (Non-Broadcast Multi-Access) Next Hop Resolution Protocol [RFC2332] messages. Such messages have provisions for both two-octet Ethertypes and OUI-based protocol types.
IANA]). The extreme values of this range, 00-00-5E-00-00 and 00-00-5E-FF-FF, are reserved and require IESG Ratification for assignment (see Section 5.1). New assignments of SNAP SAP protocol (qq-qq) numbers under the IANA OUI must meet the following requirements: o the assignment must be for standards use (either for an IETF Standard or other standard related to IETF work), o it must be documented in an Internet-Draft or RFC, and o such protocol numbers are not to be assigned for any protocol that has an Ethertype (because that can be expressed by putting an all-zeros "OUI" before the Ethertype as described above). In addition, the Expert Review (or IESG Ratification for the two reserved values) must be obtained using the procedure specified in Section 5.1. 802.11]. Values may be assigned under the IANA OUI for such other OUI-based parameter usage by Expert Review except that, for each use, the
additional specifier values consisting of all zero bits and all one bits (0x00 (00-00-5E-00) and 0xFF (00-00-5E-FF) for a one-octet specifier) are reserved and require IESG Ratification (see Section 5.1) for assignment; also, the additional specifier value 0x42 (00-00-5E-42) is assigned for use in documentation. Assignments of such other IANA OUI-based parameters must be for standards use (either for an IETF Standard or other standard related to IETF work) and be documented in an Internet-Draft or RFC. The first time a value is assigned for a particular parameter of this type, an IANA registry will be created to contain that assignment and any subsequent assignments of values for that parameter under the IANA OUI. The Expert will specify the name of the registry. If different policies from those above are required for such a parameter, a BCP or Standards Track RFC must be adopted to update this BCP and specify the new policy and parameter. RFC5342], references to [RFC5342] in IANA registries have been replaced by references to this document. In addition, any references in the registries to [DOC-ADDR], which has been combined into this document, have been replaced by references to this document. This document does not create any new IANA registries. This document assigns MAC address values for documentation. These values had been previously assigned by [DOC-ADDR]; as noted above, any references in the registries to [DOC-ADDR] have been replaced by references to this document. The only other assignment that has been made by this document is a protocol number for documentation. See Section 5.6 for details. No existing assignment is changed by this document.
The procedure described for Expert Review assignments in this document is fully consistent with the IANA Expert Review policy described in [RFC5226]. While finite, the universe of code points from which Expert-judged assignments will be made is felt to be large enough that the requirements given in this document and the Experts' good judgment are sufficient guidance. The idea is for the Expert to provide a light sanity check for small assignments of EUI identifiers, with increased scrutiny by the Expert for medium-sized assignments of EUI identifiers and assignments of protocol identifiers and other IANA OUI-based parameters. However, it can make sense to assign very large portions of the MAC identifier code point space. (Note that existing assignments include one for 1/2 of the entire multicast IANA EUI-48 code point space and one for 1/16 of that multicast code point space.) In those cases, and in cases of the assignment of "reserved" values, IESG Ratification of an Expert Review approval recommendation is required as described below. The procedure is as follows: The applicant always completes the appropriate template from Appendix A below and sends it to IANA <firstname.lastname@example.org>. IANA always sends the template to an appointed Expert. If the Expert recuses themselves or is non-responsive, IANA may choose an alternative appointed Expert or, if none is available, will contact the IESG. In all cases, if IANA receives a disapproval from an Expert selected to review an application template, the application will be denied. If the assignment is based on Expert Review: If IANA receives approval and code points are available, IANA will make the requested assignment. If the assignment is based on IESG Ratification: The procedure starts with the first steps above for Expert Review. If the Expert disapproves the application, they simply inform IANA; however, if the Expert believes the application should be approved, or is uncertain and believes that the circumstances warrant the attention of the IESG, the Expert will inform IANA about their advice, and IANA will forward the application, together with the reasons for approval or uncertainty, to the IESG. The IESG must decide whether the assignment will be granted. This can be accomplished by a management item in an IESG telechat as is
done for other types of requests.
