                   BGP Extensions for IDs Allocation
               draft-wu-idr-bgp-segment-allocation-ext-01

Abstract

   This document describes extensions to the BGP-LS for IDs allocation.
   The IDs are SIDs for segment routing and indirection IDs for flow
   redirect.  They are distributed to their domains if needed.

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

   In a network with a central controller, the controller has the link
   state information of the network, including traffic engineering
   information.  In addition, the controller allocates and manages the
   resources of the network in general.  It is natural and beneficial
   for the controller to allocate and manage IDs as a kind of network
   resources.

   This document proposes extensions to the BGP-LS as a controller for
   allocating Segment Identifers (SIDs) for segment routing (SR) and
   indirection identifiers (IIDs) for flow redirect.  If needed, some
   IDs will be distributed into their network domains.

2.  Terminology

   The following terminology is used in this document.

   SR:  Segment Routing.
