IS-IS Extensions for Traffic Engineering
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, isis mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, isis chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'IS-IS extensions for Traffic Engineering' to Proposed Standard The IESG has approved the following document: - 'IS-IS extensions for Traffic Engineering ' <draft-ietf-isis-te-bis-01.txt> as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the IS-IS for IP Internets Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Ross Callon and David Ward. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-isis-te-bis-01.txt
Technical Summary This document describes extensions to the Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol to support Traffic Engineering (TE). This document extends the IS-IS protocol by specifying new information that an Intermediate System (router) can place in Link State Protocol (LSP) Data Units. This information describes additional details regarding the state of the network that are useful for traffic engineering computations. This document replaces RFC3784. Working Group Summary This is part of a series of seven IS-IS documents that was originally published as informational for historic reasons, and is being upgraded to proposed standard. There is broad consensus in the WG for this upgrade. Document Quality These extensions have been widely deployed in multivendor networks. Personnel Chris Hopps and Dave Ward have been jointly acting as shepherds for this series of seven documents. Ross Callon is responsible AD. RFC Editor Note Please replace section 6 (Security Considerations) as follows: OLD 6. Security Considerations This document raises no new security issues for IS-IS. NEW 6. Security Considerations This document raises no new security issues for IS-IS; for general security considerations for IS-IS see [RFC3567bis]. Please add the following informative reference in section 8.2: [RFC3567bis] Li, T. and R. Atkinson, "Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) Cryptographic Authentication", work in progress. Please update all references to [RFC2966] to instead reference draft-ietf-isis-rfc2966bis. Also please note that draft-ietf-isis-rfc2966bis has been approved, and [RFC3567bis] is within a few days of being approved, and it probably would be preferable to hold this document until you can publish all three (actually all seven of the related IS-IS documents being progressed) at the same time. In the author's address section, please correct Tony Li's contact information to be: Tony Li Redback Networks, Inc. 300 Holger Way San Jose, CA 95134 USA Phone: +1 408 750 5160 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Also, in the header on the left side of the first page, first and second lines, there is a strange word-wrap issue with "Working" and "Group" being on different lines. Please correct this. Thanks. In the header on the first page, right hand side, T. Li is no longer at Cisco, and should be listed as being at Redback.
