UGC-NET | UGC-NET CS 2017 Nov – III | Question 30

  • Last Updated : 24 May, 2018

Which of the following statements are true ?
(a) The fragmentation fields in the base header section of IPv4 have moved to the fragmentation extension header in IPv6.
(b) The authentication extension header is new in IPv6.
(c) The record route option is not implemented in IPv6.

(A) (a) and (b) Only
(B) (b) and (c) Only
(C) (a) and (c) Only
(D) (a), (b) and (c)


Answer: (D)

Explanation: The fragmentation fields in the base header section of IPv4 have moved to the fragmentation extension header in IPv6:

52255
So, given statement is correct.

Authentication header (protocol 51) is identical in both IPv4 and IPv6, but authentication extension header is new in IPv6. So, given statement is correct.

In the IPv6 specifications [IPv6], no record route function is defined, and the record route function for IPv4 is less flexible and has scalability problems. So, given statement is correct.
Although, RR6 (Record Route for IPv6) mechanism is redesigned to establish an optimized record route mechanism for IPv6 and fix the problems of the record route function for IPv4 using Hop-by-Hop Option Extension.

Hence, option (D) is correct.
