This document proposes an extension to OSPF Version 2 for advertising link capabilities using the extensions defined for traffic engineering. The link capabilities are defined there for future extensibility. To support the signaling requirements of U-turn alternates for IP Fast-Reroute, this document defines three bits in the proposed link capabilities extension.
