             Signaling MSD (Maximum SID Depth) using IS-IS
                 draft-ietf-isis-segment-routing-msd-12

Abstract

   This document defines a way for an IS-IS Router to advertise multiple
   types of supported Maximum SID Depths (MSDs) at node and/or link
   granularity.  Such advertisements allow entities (e.g., centralized
   controllers) to determine whether a particular SID stack can be
   supported in a given network.  This document only defines one type of
   MSD maximum label imposition, but defines an encoding that can
   support other MSD types.

1.  Introduction

   When Segment Routing(SR) paths are computed by a centralized
   controller, it is critical that the controller learns the Maximum SID
   Depth(MSD) that can be imposed at each node/link a given SR path to
   insure that the SID stack depth of a computed path doesn't exceed the
   number of SIDs the node is capable of imposing.

   PCEP SR extensions draft [I-D.ietf-pce-segment-routing] signals MSD
   in SR PCE Capability TLV and METRIC Object.  However, if PCEP is not
   supported/configured on the head-end of an SR tunnel or a Binding-SID
   anchor node and controller does not participate in IGP routing, it
   has no way to learn the MSD of nodes and links.  BGP-LS [RFC7752]
   defines a way to expose topology and associated attributes and
   capabilities of the nodes in that topology to a centralized
   controller.  MSD signaling by BGP-LS has been defined in
   [I-D.ietf-idr-bgp-ls-segment-routing-msd].  Typically, BGP-LS is
   configured on a small number of nodes that do not necessarily act as
