Technical Summary This document provides a security framework for Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP). MPLS-TP extends MPLS technologies and introduces new OAM capabilities, a transport- oriented path protection mechanism, and strong emphasis on static provisioning supported by network management systems. This document addresses the security aspects relevant in the context of MPLS-TP specifically. It describes potential security threats, security requirements for MPLS-TP, and mitigation procedures for MPLS-TP networks and MPLS-TP interconnection to other MPLS and GMPLS networks. This document is built on RFC5920 "MPLS and GMPLS security framework" by providing additional security considerations which are applicable to the MPLS-TP extensions. All the security considerations from RFC5920 are assumed to apply. Working Group Summary This document has a strong support in the working group and has been well reviewed. The organization, structure, and content of this document benefitted from multiple reviews, in particular, reviews by the co-chair of the KARP WG. ITU-T SG15 has been notified of all reviews and working group last calls for this document: there are no unresolved comments or issues. The document was returned to the working group after the first publication request for restructuring and considerable change. The new version is much shorter and has been through a second working group last call. Document Quality This an informational document, it presents a framework that might be used when implementing, deploying, configurating and operating networks, but it is not possible to say that there are implementations. The document has had the review that is needed, the working group last call was brought to the attention of SG15 in ITU-T. Personnel Loa Andersson (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Document Shepherd. Adrian Farrel (email@example.com) is the Responsible AD.
