This document describes an extension to the IS-IS routing protocol to add an optional capability that allows tagging and grouping of the nodes in an IS-IS domain. This allows simple management and easy control over route and path selection, based on local configured policies. This document describes an extension to the IS-IS protocol to advertise node administrative tags. The node administrative tags can be used to express and apply locally defined network policies which is a very useful operational capability. Node administrative tags may be used either by IS-IS itself or by other applications consuming information propagated via IS-IS. This document describes the protocol extensions to disseminate node administrative tags in IS-IS protocols.
