Technical Summary This document describes an efficient method for exporting bidirectional flow (Biflow) information using the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) protocol, representing each Biflow using a single Flow Record. Working Group Summary The working group considered several methods of encoding bidirectional flow data, these are discussed in the document, as well as the method which was chosen. The Working Group has reached consensus on this document. Protocol Quality This document has been reviewed by by the IPFIX Working Group Chairs and by Dan Romascanu for the IESG. It also underwent a security directorate review by Rob Austein and a GenArt review by Christian Vogt.
