OSPF Traffic Engineering (TE) extensions are used to advertise TE
Link State Advertisements (LSAs) containing information about TE-
enabled links. The only addresses belonging to a router that are
advertised in TE LSAs are the local addresses corresponding to TE-
enabled links, and the local address corresponding to the Router ID.
In order to allow other routers in a network to compute Multiprotocol
Label Switching (MPLS) traffic engineered Label Switched Paths (TE
LSPs) to a given router's local addresses, those addresses must also
be advertised by OSPF TE.
This document describes procedures that enhance OSPF TE to advertise
a router's local addresses.
