Technical Summary

This document provides extensions to OSPF and IS-IS to advertisement the PCE
Security capabilities of the advertising router. These capabilities could than
be used for PCE and PC Client authentication.

Working Group Summary

While this document has been around for some time, there wasn't much discussion
until WG last call. During the WG last call, we received comments from more
than a half dozen people and these were incorporated into the document. We also
got RTG and SEC directorate reviews. The WG last call included both the LSR and
PCE WG lists and there were reviewers from both.

Document Quality

The document is of high quality with all the required reviews. While there
aren't any implementations yet, it is a very straight forward extension.
