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.

IMHO, the document is 


. I just have one comment:

The authors say that « as an informational overview, this draft does not

introduce any extra security risks » and explain that future documents that

specify practical solutions will detail the security aspects. They also refer to

[RFC6325] for general TRILL security considerations.

I may agree. However an informal document discussing problems and goals

that practical solutions will have to address is also a good place to discuss

general security aspects. Future documents could easily refer to this document

while going further into details. Too bad.
