Technical Summary This document defines a new OSPF Router Information (RI) TLV that allows OSPF routers to flood their hostname-to-Router ID mapping information across an OSPF network to provide a simple and dynamic mechanism for routers running OSPF to learn about symbolic hostnames just like for routers running IS-IS. This mechanism is applicable to both OSPFv2 and OSPFv3. Working Group Summary No controvery reported (see PROTO writeup by Acee Lindem). A nearly identical capability has been published and is implemented for IS-IS. Document Quality We am not aware of implementation of this feature. However, a nearly identical capability has been implemented for IS-IS (as RFC2763, which is referenced in this document). Given the simplicity of the capability, and its similarity to the IS-IS capability, the document has had ample review. It has completed WG and IETF last calls, and has been updated based on OPS Directory comments, and in response to IESG comments. Personnel Acee Lindem is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ross Callon is the Responsible Area Director.
