Technical Summary OSPF Traffic Engineering (TE) extensions are used to advertise TE Link State Advertisements (LSAs) containing information about TE- enabled links. The only addresses belonging to a router that are advertised in TE LSAs are the local addresses corresponding to TE- enabled links, and the local address corresponding to the Router ID. In order to allow other routers in a network to compute Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic engineered Label Switched Paths (TE LSPs) to a given router's local addresses, those addresses must also be advertised by OSPF TE. This document describes procedures that enhance OSPF TE to advertise a router's local addresses. Working Group Summary No controversy reported (see PROTO writeup in the ID tracker). At least one CCAMP draft requires this as a normative reference. Document Quality There is one known implementation, but no products (at the current time). Personnel Acee Lindem is the Document Shepherd for this document. Ross Callon is the Responsible Area Director.
