NSIS Operation over IP Tunnels
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, nsis mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, nsis chair <email@example.com> Subject: Document Action: 'NSIS Operation Over IP Tunnels' to Experimental RFC (draft-ietf-nsis-tunnel-13.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'NSIS Operation Over IP Tunnels' (draft-ietf-nsis-tunnel-13.txt) as an Experimental RFC This document is the product of the Next Steps in Signaling Working Group. The IESG contact person is Lars Eggert. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-nsis-tunnel/
Technical Summary NSIS Quality of Service (QoS) signaling enables applications to perform QoS reservation along a data flow path. When the data flow path contains IP tunnel segments, NSIS QoS signaling has no effect within those tunnel segments and the resulting QoS-untended tunnel segments could become the weakest QoS link which may invalidate the QoS efforts in the rest of the end-to-end path. This document defines a solution to this problem by mapping end-to-end QoS session requests to corresponding QoS sessions in the tunnel, thus extending the end-to-end QoS signaling into the IP tunnel segments. Working Group Summary The document is a product of the NSIS working group. The WG has reviewed the document thoroughly, and it has been an important extension to the protocol family. Document Quality The document is a supplemental document to the core NSIS protocols, and extends the core specifications to add support for IP tunnels. The technical details have been validated as part of the work on NSIS protocol operation on mobile environments. Personnel The document shepherd is Jukka Manner (firstname.lastname@example.org). Lars Eggert (email@example.com) reviewed the document for the IESG. RFC Editor Note An IPR disclosure was received on draft-ietf-nsis-tunnel while it was in AUTH48 processing. We consequently moved it back into the IESG state, together with draft-ietf-nsis-applicability-mobility-signaling, which refers to it. We have now confirmed that the community and the IESG approve publishing these two documents in full knowledge of the disclosed IPR. Please resume AUTH48 processing of draft-ietf-nsis-applicability-mobility-signaling and draft-ietf-nsis-tunnel.
