[quagga-dev 11125] Facing some issues in implementing RFC6860 (Hiding Transit-Only Networks in OSPF)

I am working with the RFC-6860. It says, for hiding broadcast networks we must use a special subnet mask i.e. 255.255.255.255, but I am confused with this. As far as I know 255.255.255.255 subnet mask is assigned to a single host i.e. used as loopback address. How can we use it for a broadcast network.
I was trying it by configuring the manual settings as 10.10.10.1/32 but it is not working out. With this IP it is not able to connect with its neighbor.
Manual IP to the system: 10.10.10.1/24
OSPF configuration file has the following settings:
network 10.10.10.0/24 area 10.10.10.0
area 10.10.10.0 range 10.10.10.0/24
Same settings are done at the neighbor side.
With the above settings everything is working fine. But if I change the subnet mask with /32 the setup stops working.
Do anyone one have any idea about this.
Thanks and regards,
