Technical Summary This document specifies extensions to OSPF to specify encoding for application specific link attributes. This will support both different attributes for applications and limiting the usage of attributes to specific applications. Backward compatibility considerations are also discussed. Working Group Summary Initially, there was a lot of debate as to whether or not this was required as some argued it could be done by just using the the MPLS and GMPLS TE encodings for other applications. After much debate consensus was reached. Document Quality This document has been a WG document for a multiple years. It is stable, without changes to the technical solution and only clarifications. Personnel Yingzhen Qu is the Document Shepherd. Alvaro Retana is the Responsible Area Director.
