This document specifies the language and set of semantics describing tunnels in the Routing Policy Specification Language (RPSL). It defines a new tunnel class, inet-tunnel, and a set of extensions to the inet-rtr class. An instance of the inet-tunnel class specifies endpoints for tunnels of various encapsulation types, including DVMRP [DVMRP], GRE [GRE], and IPv6 [IPV6]. This memo is a product of the Routing Policy System Working Group (RPS) in the Operational Requirements area of the Internet Engineering Task Force. Submit comments to <> or the author.
