This document defines an extension to Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) [RFC5036] for implementation of multiple LDP instances in a network node, where all such instances share the common data plane. Multiple LDP instances provide a method for operators for fate separation of various LDP FEC Types as well as for network segmentation. The methods defined in this extension are backward compatible with procedures defined in [RFC5036]
