The IS-IS routing protocol (ISO 10589) requires reliable protocols at
the link layer for point-to-point links. As a result, it does not use
a three-way handshake when establishing adjacencies on point-to-point
media. This paper defines an backward-compatible extension to the
protocol that provides for a three-way handshake. It is fully
interoperable with systems that do not support the extension.
Additionally, the extension allows the robust operation of more than
256 point-to-point links on a single router.
This extension has been implemented by multiple router vendors; this
paper is provided as information to the Internet community in order
to allow interoperable implementations to be built by other vendors.
