           IS-IS Extension to Advertise SRv6 SIDs using SID Block
                  draft-cheng-lsr-isis-srv6-sid-block-00


Abstract

   This document proposes a simplified method to advertise SRv6 SIDs in
   IS-IS. The SRv6 SID Block is composed of a number of continuous SIDs
   within the address range of a Locator. When a SID is assigned from
   the SID Block, it is described by an index based on the SID Block,
   instead of the whole 128-bit IPv6 address.

1. Introduction

   The Segment Routing (SR) allows for a flexible definition of end-to-
   end paths by encoding paths as sequences of topological sub-paths,
   called "segments". As defined in [RFC8402] and [RFC8986], an SRv6
   Segment Identifier (SID) is an IPv6 address explicitly associated
   with the segment and consists of Locator, Function and Argument
   parts.

   [I-D.ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions] defines the SRv6 End SID sub-
   TLV, the SRv6 End.X SID sub-TLV, and the SRv6 LAN End.X SID sub-TLV
   in IS-IS.

Internet-Draft          IS-IS SRv6 SID Block                April 2022


   The SRv6 End SID sub-TLV is used to advertise an SRv6 SID with
   Endpoint behaviors which do not require a particular neighbor. The
   SRv6 End SID sub-TLV is used to advertise an SRv6 SID associated
   with a point to point adjacency. The SRv6 LAN End.X SID sub-TLV sub-
   TLV is used to advertise an SRv6 SID associated with a LAN
   adjacency. Each of these sub-TLVs contains a complete 128-bit SID
   and the sub-TLV length is quite long.

   Multiple SRv6 End.X SIDs can be associated with the same point to
   point adjacency or the same physical LAN neighbor. Each SID is
   advertised in a single SRv6 End.X SID sub-TLV or SRv6 LAN End.X SID
   sub-TLV. These SIDs are possibly associated to the same Locator,
   therefore the main differences among the sub-TLVs may be a few bits
   in the Function part of SID and the Endpoint Behavior value
   indicating different flavors.

   The number of End.X SIDs has a positive correlation with the number
   of neighbors. Assume that, each neighbor is assigned with End.X
   SIDs, and each End.X behavior has several different flavors, such as
   PSP, USP, USD, no PSP/USP/USD, etc. Then, the number of End.X SIDs
   will be at least the number of neighbors multiplied by the number of
   flavors.

   If Flexible-Algorithm is applied on SRv6 forwarding plane as defined
   in [I-D.ietf-lsr-flex-algo], a node generally advertises a Flex-
   Algorithm specific locator for each Flex-Algorithm it participates
   in and also advertises associated SRv6 END.X SIDs for every link
   that has not been pruned from the Flex-Algorithm computation.

   There may be other scenarios in which the number of End.X SIDs is
   quite large. Under these circumstances, advertising SRv6 SIDs needs
   considerable amounts of IS-IS LSPs and may be a burden of IS-IS
   nodes.

   This document proposes a simplified method to advertise SRv6 SIDs in
   IS-IS. A number of continuous SIDs are assigned within the address
   range of a Locator, which is defined as the SRv6 SID Block. When a
   SID is assigned from the block, it is described by an index based on
   the block, instead of the whole 128-bit IPv6 address.

1.1. Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
   BCP 14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

Internet-Draft          IS-IS SRv6 SID Block                April 2022


2. SRv6 SID Block sub-TLV

   An SRv6 SID Block is composed of a number of continuous SIDs within
   the address range of a Locator. When any SID assigned in an SRv6 SID
   Block is advertised in IS-IS, the new sub-TLVs defined in this
   document SHOULD be used, instead of the SRv6 End SID sub-TLV, the
   SRv6 End.X SID sub-TLV, and the SRv6 LAN End.X SID sub-TLV defined
   in [I-D.ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions].

   The SRv6 SID Block sub-TLV is defined in this document to advertise
   an SRv6 SID Block. This new sub-TLV is carried in the SRv6 Locator
   TLV defined in [I-D.ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions].

   The SRv6 SID Block sub-TLV has the following format:


    0                   1                   2                   3

   o Offset: 1 octet. Number of shifting bits for the index of SIDs in
      this block.

   o Start SID: 16 octets. The smallest SID in this block.

   o End SID: 16 octets. The largest SID in this block.

   o Sub-sub-tlv-len: 1 octet. Number of octets used by sub-sub-TLVs.

   o Optional Sub-sub-TLVs.

   The address range of an SRv6 SID Block, indicated by the Start SID
   and the End SID, must be covered by the associated Locator. Multiple
   SRv6 SID Blocks can be associated to the same Locator, and their
   address ranges should not overlap.

3. SRv6 End.X SID Index sub-TLV

   [I-D.ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions] defines SRv6 End.X SID sub-TLV
   to advertise an SRv6 SID associated with a point to point adjacency.
   If such SID is assigned in an SRv6 SID Block, it must be advertised
   by SRv6 End.X SID Index sub-TLV instead.

   The SRv6 End.X SID Index sub-TLV has the following format:

    0                   1                   2                   3

   o Flags: 1 octet. Same as the Flags field in SRv6 End.X SID sub-
      TLV.

   o Algorithm: 1 octet. Same as the Algorithm field in SRv6 End.X SID
      sub-TLV.

   o Weight: 1 octet. Same as the Weight field in SRv6 End.X SID sub-
      TLV.

   o Block-ID: 1 octet. Indicating the associated SRv6 SID Block in
      which the SIDs are assigned.

   o Index Num: 1 octet. Number of the following indexes.

   o Index Length: 1 octet. Number of octets used by a single index.

   o Index N: variable. Index of a SID in the SRv6 SID Block.

   o Endpoint Behavior N: 2 octets. Behavior of the SID indicated by
      the preceding Index N field. Same as the Endpoint Behavior field
      in SRv6 End.X SID sub-TLV.

   The SRv6 End.X SID Index sub-TLV can carry multiple SIDs which are
   assigned in an SRv6 SID Block identified by the Block-ID. These SIDs
   are indicated by the indexes in the SRv6 SID Block, instead of the
   whole 128-bit IPv6 addresses. They share the same Flags, Algorithm
   and Weight, but their Endpoint Behavior can be different.

   The conversion from 128-bit SID into index, or vice versa, is
   described in Section 6.

4. SRv6 LAN End.X SID Index sub-TLV

   The SRv6 LAN End.X SID Index sub-TLV is used to advertise SRv6 SIDs
   associated with a LAN adjacency, as substitution of the SRv6 LAN
   End.X SID sub-TLV for SID Block. The main difference from the SRv6
   End.X SID Index sub-TLV is that the SRv6 LAN End.X SID Index sub-TLV
   has to include the System ID of the physical neighbor on the LAN
   with which the SRv6 SIDs are associated.

   The SRv6 LAN End.X SID Index sub-TLV has the following format:

   o Flags, Algorithm, Weight, Block-ID, Index Num, Index Length,
      Index N, Endpoint Behavior N: Same with the corresponding fields
      in SRv6 End.X SID Index sub-TLV.

5. SRv6 End SID Index sub-TLV

   [I-D.ietf-lsr-isis-srv6-extensions] defines SRv6 End SID sub-TLV to
   advertise SRv6 End SID. If such SID is assigned in an SRv6 SID
   Block, it must be advertised by SRv6 End SID Index sub-TLV instead.

   o Endpoint Behavior N: 2 octets. Behavior of the SID indicating by
      the preceding Index N field. Used as the same as the Endpoint
      Behavior field in SRv6 End SID sub-TLV.

6. Computations of SID Index

   When a SID is assigned from a SRv6 SID Block, its index can be
   computed in the following way:

   Index = (SID - Start SID) right shift Offset bits

   When a node receives any of the above-mentioned SID Index sub-TLVs,
   along with the SRv6 SID Block sub-TLV, it can convert the index to
   SID in the following way:

   SID = (Index left shift Offset bits) + Start SID

7. Rule-based SID Block for Large-Scale End.X SID Advertisement

   In this section, the rule-based SID Block is proposed to achieve
   greater compressibility for End.X SID advertisements in massive
   End.X SIDs scenarios.

   Three new sub-TLVs are defined: the Rule-based End.X SID Block sub-
   TLV, the Rule-based End.X SID Index sub-TLV or the Rule-based LAN
   End.X SID Index sub-TLV.

   The Rule-based End.X SID Block sub-TLV advertises a SID Block, along
   with the rule for assigning a series of End.X SIDs with different
   flavors in the SID Block. The Rule-based End.X SID Index sub-TLV or
   the Rule-based LAN End.X SID Index sub-TLV advertises a start index
   in the SID Block, indicating that End.X SIDs with different flavors
   are assigned following the start index: <Index 0 (start index),
   Endpoint Behavior 0>, <Index 1 (start index + 1), Endpoint Behavior
   1>, ..., <Index N (start index + N), Endpoint Behavior N>. N is
   equal to (Behavior Num - 1).
