Abstract

RFC 6472 (i.e., BCP 172) recommends not using AS_SET and AS_CONFED_SET in BGP. This document updates RFC 4271 and proscribes the use of the AS_SET and AS_CONFED_SET types of the AS_PATH in BGPv4. This is done to simplify the design and implementation of BGP and to make the semantics of the originator of a route more clear. This will also simplify the design, implementation, and deployment of ongoing work in the Secure Inter-Domain Routing Working Group.
