IANA has created "Protocol in the Segment IS Sub-TLV" registry and "Protocol in the Label Stack Sub-TLV of the Downstream Detailed Mapping TLV" under the "Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Paths (LSPs) Ping Parameters" registry. RFC8287 defines the code point for different Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP). This document proposes the code point to be used in the Segment ID Sub-TLV and Downstream Detailed Mapping TLV when the IGP protocol is OSPFv3. This document also clarifies that the existing codepoints of these two TLVs called "OSPF" shall only be used for OSPFv2.
