SECDIR
        review of draft-ietf-ospf-manet-single-hop-or-03




 




I reviewed
        this document
        as part of the security directorate's ongoing effort to review
        all IETF
        documents being processed by the IESG.

 
        

These comments were written primarily for the benefit of
        the security
        area directors.

  

Document editors, WG chairs and ADs
        should treat 

these
        comments just like any other last call comments.




 




As per the
        Abstract, this document
        describes use of the OSPF-MANET interface in single-hop
        broadcast networks. It
        is targeted as an Experimental RFC. It is a very brief I-D, only
        8 pages. It
        updates RFC 5820 (

Extensions to OSPF to Support MANETs) to describe use
        of the MANET
        interface in 

single-hop
        broadcast
        networks, consistent with the abstract. 




 




The Security
        Considerations section contains only one sentence, stating that
        there are no
        new security considerations beyond those expressed in RFC 5820.
        Since this is
        an update to that RFC, this text makes sense. RFC 

 

5820 contains a two-page
        Security
        Considerations section. Much of the text from that section is
        taken from RFC
        5614 (

MANET
        Extension of OSPF). The 

Security
Considerations
        text in 5820 is well written and is intended to address a
        broader range of MANET contexts that the single-hop broadcast
        networks address
        here. Thus citing that text in this document seems adequate.
