This draft describes adding a TTL to MPLS LSP pings. There are no significant
security considerations to this protocol addition. The Security Considerations
section talks about the possibility of a DoS based on this new attribute, but
also acknowledges that the the same DoS was already possible. So: no security
concerns at all.
