                  Information Distribution over GRASP
                 draft-ietf-anima-grasp-distribution-01

Abstract

   This document proposes a solution for information distribution in the
   autonomic network infrastructure (ANI).  Information distribution is
   categorized into two different modes: 1) instantaneous distribution
   and 2) publication for retrieval.  In the former case, the
   information is sent, propagated and disposed of after reception.  In
   the latter case, information needs to be stored in the network.

   The capability to distribute information is a basic and fundamental
   need for an autonomous network ([RFC7575]).  This document describes
   typical use cases of information distribution in ANI and requirements
   to ANI, such that rich information distribution can be natively
   supported.  The document proposes extensions to the autonomic nodes
   and suggests an implementation based on GRASP
   ([I-D.ietf-anima-grasp]) extensions as a protocol on the wire.
