     SR Policies for Path Segment and Bidirectional Path in BGP-LS
             draft-li-idr-bgp-ls-sr-policy-path-segment-01

Abstract

   This document specifies the way of collecting configuration and
   states of SR policies carrying Path Segment and bidirectional path
   information by using BPG-LS.  Such information can be used by
   external conponents for many use cases such as performance
   measurement, path re-optimization and end-to-end protection.

Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

1.  Introduction

   Segment routing (SR) [RFC8402] is a source routing paradigm that
   allows the ingress node steers packets into a specific path according
   to the Segment Routing Policy
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy].

   However, the SR Policies defined in
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing-policy] only supports unidirectional
   SR paths and there is no path ID in a Segment List to identify an SR
   path.  For identifying an SR path and supporting bidirectional path
   [I-D.cheng-spring-mpls-path-segment], new policies carrying Path
   Segment and bidirectional path information are defined in
   [I-D.li-idr-sr-policy-path-segment-distribution], as well as the
   extensions to BGP to distribute new SR policies.  The Path Segment
   can be a Path Segment in SR-MPLS [I-D.cheng-spring-mpls-path-segment]
   , or a Path Segment in SRv6 [I-D.li-spring-srv6-path-segment], or
   other IDs that can identify a path.
