Introduction [S-BFD] defines a simplified mechanism to use Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD)[RFC5880]. This mechanism depends on network nodes knowing the BFD discriminators which each node in the network has reserved for this purpose. Use of the Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS)[IS-IS] protocol is one possible means of advertising these discriminators. 2. Encoding Format The IS-IS Router CAPABILITY TLV as defined in [RFC4971] will be used to advertise S-BFD discriminators. A new sub-TLV is defined as described below. S-BFD Discriminators sub-TLVs are formatted as specified in [RFC5305]. Ginsberg, et al. Expires March 27, 2015 [Page 2] Internet-Draft isis-sbfd-discriminator September 2014 No. of octets +-----------------------------+ | Type (to be assigned by | 1 | IANA - suggested value 19) | +-----------------------------+ | Length (multiple of 4) | 1 +-----------------------------+ | Discriminator Value(s) | 4/Discriminator : : +-----------------------------+ Inclusion of the S-BFD Discriminators sub-TLV in a Router Capability TLV is optional. Multiple S-BFD Discriminators sub-TLVs MAY be advertised by an IS. When multiple S-BFD discriminators are advertised how a given discriminator is mapped to a specific use case is out of scope for this document. S-BFD discriminator advertisements MAY be flooded within an area or throughout the domain using the procedures specified in [RFC4971]. 3. IANA Considerations This document requires the definition of a new sub-TLV in the Sub- TLVs for TLV 242 registry. The value written below is a suggested value subject to assignment by IANA. Value Description ---- --------------------- 19 S-BFD Discriminators 4. Security Considerations Security concerns for IS-IS are addressed in [IS-IS], [RFC5304], and [RFC5310]. Introduction of the S-BFD Discriminators sub-TLV introduces no new security risks for IS-IS. Advertisement of the S-BFD discriminators does make it possible for attackers to initiate S-BFD sessions using the advertised information. The vulnerabilities this poses and how to mitigate them are discussed in the Security Considerations section of [S-BFD]. 5.
