1.  Introduction

   Every interface is assigned an Interface ID, which uniquely
   identifies the interface on the router.  For example, some
   implementations MAY be able to use the MIB-II IfIndex [RFC2863] as
   the Interface ID.

   Local/Remote Interface Identifiers MAY be flooded by OSPF [RFC2328]
   as defined in [RFC4203].  From the perspective of the advertising
   router, the Local Interface Identifier is a known value, however the
   Remote Interface Identifier needs to be learnt before it can be
   advertised.  [RFC4203] suggests to use TE Link Local LSA [RFC3630] to
   communicate Local Interface Identifier to neighbors on the link.
   Though such mechanism works, it has some drawbacks.

   This draft proposes an extension to OSPF link-local signaling (LLS)
   [RFC5613] to advertise the Local Interface Identifier.

2.  Interface ID Exchange using TE Opaque LSA

   Usage of the Link Local TE Opaque LSA to propagate the Local
   Interface Identifier to the neighbors on the link is described in
   [RFC4203].  This mechanism has following problems:

      LSAs can only be flooded over an existing adjacency that is in
      Exchange state or greater.  The adjacency state machine progresses
