Technical Summary This document presents a framework for Content Distribution Network Interconnection (CDNI). The purpose of the framework is to provide an overall picture of the problem space of CDNI and to describe the relationships among the various components necessary to interconnect CDNs. CDN Interconnection requires the specification of interfaces and mechanisms to address issues such as request routing, distribution metadata exchange, and logging information exchange across CDNs. The intent of this document is to outline what each interface needs to accomplish, and to describe how these interfaces and mechanisms fit together, while leaving their detailed specification to other documents. It obsoletes RFC 3466. Working Group Summary No unusual controversy. There was solid consensus on early requests for input on whether or not the document was ready for last call. Later requests for input after reviews and iterations of the document took place resulted is feedback from a fewer number of WG participants. The shepherd feels this was the result of previous consensus and input and relative approval of the minor incremental changes. Document Quality The protocol has been implemented by a couple of vendors as a prototype, including Cisco and Alcatel-Lucent (Velocix). It is in early stages of development. No special reviewers needed. Personnel Daryl Malas (WG Co-chair) is the Document Shepherd. Spencer Dawkins is the Responsible Area Director.
