       MPL forwarder policy for multicast with admin-local scope
                 draft-ietf-roll-admin-local-policy-01

Abstract

   The purpose of this document is to specify an automated policy for
   the routing of MPL multicast messages with admin-local scope in a
   border router.

1.  Introduction

   Multicast scopes are defined in [RFC4291].  The [RFC7346] extends the
   scope definition with the text:

   "Interface-Local, Link-Local, and Realm-Local scope boundaries are
   automatically derived from physical connectivity or other, non-
   multicast related configuration.  Global scope has no boundary.  The
   boundaries of all other non-reserved scopes of Admin-Local or larger
   are administratively configured."

   The admin-local scope must therefore be administratively configured.
   This draft describes an automated policy for the MPL forwarding of
   multicast messages with admin-local scope within a border router.
   This wish is in line with the autonomous networking ideas presented
   in [I-D.irtf-nmrg-an-gap-analysis].
