<p>BIRD supports all requirements of the BGP4 standard as defined in
<rfc id="4271"> It also supports the community attributes (<rfc id="1997">),
capability negotiation (<rfc id="5492">), MD5 password authentication
(<rfc id="2385">), extended communities (<rfc id="4360">), route reflectors
(<rfc id="4456">), AS confederations (<rfc id="5065">), graceful restart
(<rfc id="4724">), multiprotocol extensions (<rfc id="4760">), 4B AS numbers
(<rfc id="4893">), and 4B AS numbers in extended communities (<rfc id="5668">).
For IPv6, it uses the standard multiprotocol extensions defined in
<rfc id="4760"> and applied to IPv6 according to <rfc id="2545">.
