Technical Summary Some IETF protocols make use of Ethernet frame formats and IEEE 802 parameters. This document discusses some use of such parameters in IETF protocols, specifies IANA considerations for assignment of points under the IANA OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier), provides some values for use in documentation, and obsoletes RFC 5342. Working Group Summary As was the previous document, this version was prepared under the assumption that this would this would be AD sponsored. There is a not a logically good home for an IANA maintained registry of IETF assigned entries under the IANA OUI, for the previous RFC the sponsoring AD was also the IEEE liason. Document Quality The document makes small but important changes to RFC 5342 (Repeated from the document) Add MAC addresses and IANA OUI-based protocol and other values for use in documentation. Eliminate any requirements for parallel unicast and multicast assignment that are not requested. Such requirements had been included in [RFC5342] on the theory they would make bookkeeping easier for IANA but have proved to be problematic in practice. The document has been reviewed by the previously shepherding AD. The document has been throught IETF last call and has Addressed IANA review concerns. Personnel Joel Jaeggli is the Shepherding AD and Author of the Shepherding report.
