         Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) Extension TLVs
             draft-ietf-manet-nhdp-olsrv2-tlv-extension-02

Abstract

   This specification describes extensions to definitions of TLVs used
   by the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) and
   the MANET Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP), to increase their
   abilities to accommodate protocol extensions.  This document updates
   OLSRv2 and RFC6130.

1.  Introduction

   The MANET Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) [RFC6130] and the
   Optimized Link State Routing Protocol, version 2 (OLSRv2) [OLSRv2]
   are protocols for use in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) [RFC2501],
   based on the Generalized Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) Packet/Message
   Format [RFC5444].

   This document updates [RFC6130] and [OLSRv2], specifically their use
   of TLV (Type-Length-Value) elements, to increase the extensibility of
   these protocols, and to enable some improvements in their
   implementation.

   This specification reduces the latitude of implementations of
   [OLSRv2] and [RFC6130] to consider some messages, which will not be
   created by implementations simply following those specifications, as
   a reason to consider the message as "badly formed", and thus as a
