Technical Summary The IETF has standardized the TRILL protocol, which provides transparent Layer 2 forwarding using encapsulation with a hop count and IS-IS link state routing. This document specifies the data formats and code points for the IS-IS extensions to support TRILL. Working Group Summary This document, draft-ietf-isis-ieee-aq and draft-ietf-isis-layer2 were originally one document.Through the review process it was determined that a split into a base document (draft-ietf-isis-layer2) and draft-ietf-isis-trill and draft-ietf-isis-ieee-aq into separate documents. One solution to pass layer2 information in ISIS or at least one specification was desired but, the IEEE and IETF have each defined their own mechanism. Given the divergence of solutions, a specification split was appropriate. Document Quality There are known interoperable implementations of this technology based in earlier versions of the drafts. Earlier versions were based on additional PDUs in the ISIS protocol which have been changed to TLVs. It is reasonable that implementors can make the change and that earlier interoperation demonstrates that the solution is viable. Personnel David Ward is the Document Shepherd for this document. Stewart Bryant is the Responsible Area Director.
