BESS Working Group E. Rosen Internet-Draft Juniper Networks, Inc. Updates: 6514 (if approved) February 23, 2015 Intended status: Standards Track Expires: August 27, 2015 IANA Registry for P-Multicast Service Interface Tunnel Attribute Flags draft-ietf-bess-pta-flags-00.txt Abstract RFC6514 defines the "P-Multicast Service Interface Tunnel (PMSI Tunnel) attribute". This attribute contains an octet of "flags". Only one flag is defined in that RFC, but there is now a need to define additional flags. Since the RFC did not create a registry for the assignment of flag bits, this document updates the RFC by creating a registry for that purpose.

Introduction [RFC6514] defines the "P-Multicast Service Interface Tunnel (PMSI Tunnel) attribute". This attribute contains an octet of "flags". Only one flag is defined in that RFC, but there is now a need to define additional flags. Since the RFC did not create a registry for the assignment of flag bits, this document creates a registry for that purpose. 2. IANA Considerations IANA is requested to create a new registry called "P-Multicast Service Interface Tunnel (PMSI Tunnel) Attribute Flags" in the "Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Parameters" registry. Per [RFC6514] section 5, a PMSI Tunnel Attribute contains a "Flags" octet. The Flags field is a single octet, with bits numbered, left- to-right, from 0 to 7. IANA is requested to initialize the registry as follows: Rosen Expires August 27, 2015 [Page 2] Internet-Draft PMSI Tunnel Attribute Flags February 2015 Bit Position Description Reference (left to right) 0 unassigned 1 unassigned 2 unassigned 3 unassigned 4 unassigned 5 unassigned 6 unassigned 7 Leaf Information Required (LIR) RFC6514 PMSI Tunnel Attribute Flags The registration procedure for this registry is Standards Action. 3. Security Considerations No security considerations are raised by this document. 4. Normative References [RFC6514] Aggarwal, R., Rosen, E., Morin, T., and Y.
