This document describes mechanisms allowing advertising Segment Routing Traffic Engineering (SRTE) policies using BGP. Through the mechanisms described in this document, a BGP speaker has the ability to trigger, in a remote BGP node, the setup of a SR Encapsulation policy with specific characteristics and an explicit path. Steering mechanisms are also defined to enable the application of the policy on a per BGP route basis.
