  From the SecDir Review by Cathy Meadows:

  RFC 4657 explicitly includes multi-area networks among multi-domain
  networks.  It then goes on the say, in the security considerations
  section:

    Of particular relevance are the implications for confidentiality
    inherent in a PCECP for multi-domain networks.  It is not necessarily
    the case that a multi-domain PCE solution will compromise security,
    but solutions MUST examine their impacts in this area.

  More needs to be said aboutt multi-area routing and trust issues.  The
  document says that it does not open up any new trust issues.   Even
  though the different areas are administered by the same entity, there
  may still be issues if one or more of the areas is compromised.
