                  Information Distribution over GRASP
                 draft-ietf-anima-grasp-distribution-00

Abstract

   This document proposes a solution for information distribution in
   autonomic networks.  Information distribution is categorized into two
   different modes: 1) instantaneous distribution; 2) publication for
   retrieval.  In the former case, the information is sent, propagates
   and is disposed of after reception.  In the latter case, information
   needs to be stored in the network.

   The capabilities to distribute information are basic and fundamental
   needs for an autonomous network ([RFC7575]).  This document describes
   typical use cases of information distribution in ANI and requirements
   to ANI, such that rich information distribution can be natively
   supported.  The document proposes extensions to the autonomic nodes
   and suggests an implementation based on GRASP
   ([I-D.ietf-anima-grasp]) extensions as a protocol on the wire.
