This document explains how to use existing protocols, registries, code points, and algorithms to operate a Bundle Protocol (BP) edge node within a stable, non-challenged local underlayer IP network without the need for prior BP-layer configuration or long-term state. The purpose of this is to significantly lower the barrier to entry for lightweight BP edge nodes intended to act as endpoints for one (or only a few) BP applications.
