I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG. These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the
security area directors. Document editors and WG chairs should treat
these comments just like any other last call comments.

This draft describes a method for encapsulating and delivery of Data 

Communication Network (DCN) messages over the General Associated Channel 

(G-ACh).  The purpose of which, is to allow additional mechanisms to 

control/manage MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) networks.

The security considerations section does exist and describes that DCN 

messages are required to have adequate security mechanisms.  The section 

doesn't describe what those mechanisms are, but should at least provide 

a reference from other MPLS RFC/I-Ds that do.

  There is no need to create a CCh for every LSP between a pair of
