This document specifies Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) procedures for Failure Protection, as specified in the MRT Multicast architecture [I-D.atlas-rtwg-mrt-mc-arch]. This can be accomplished with Global Repair (aka Live-Live) or with Local Repair (aka Fast Re- route). Maximally Redundant Trees (MRTs) provide the capability to PIM to provide alternate paths around any given failure.
