This document specifies encoding of extensions to the IS-IS routing
protocol in support of Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching
Working Group Summary
This is part of a series of seven IS-IS documents that were
originally published as informational for historic reasons, that
are being upgraded to proposed standard. There is broad consensus
in the WG for this upgrade.
The extensions descrived in this document have been carefully
reviewed (including by CCAMP). I am not sure about deployment.
Chris Hopps and Dave Ward have been jointly shepherding this
series of seven documents. Ross Callon is the responsible AD.
RFC Editor Note
Please add a new paragraph at the end of the existing section
5 (security considerations):
For a discussion of general security considerations for
IS-IS see [RFC3567bis].
All references to [ISIS-3way], which are in fact references
to RFC3373, should be changed to instead reference
All references to [ISIS-RESTART], which are in fact references
to RFC3847, should be changed to instead reference
All references to [ISIS-TE], which are in fact references
to RFC3784, should be changed to instead reference
All references to [ISIS-HMAC], which are in fact references
to RFC3567, should be changed to instead reference
The entry "Updates: 3784bis" in the header of the first page,
should instead be updated to reference whichever RFC comes from
Note that all of the IS-IS document references above are
within a few days of being approved, and thus it makes sense
to hold this draft to wait for them to also be published (so
that we can reference the actual RFC numbers).
