Last Call Review of draft-ietf-pim-registry-
I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's
ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the
IESG. Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just
like any other last call comments.
This short draft provides instructions for an IANA registry for Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) message types. There is currently no such registry, and there
are already several RFCs specifying PIM message types that should be included. The document gives the initial content of the
registry based on these RFCs, as well as a new type which is reserved for the extension of type space.
The authors not that other than the possible security benefits of having one place where the various PIM message types can
be found, there are no security considerations. I agree with them, and so don't have anything further to add.
