Technical Summary This document provides various use cases and related requirements for Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) such that extensions could be developed to allow for simplified detection of forwarding failures. Working Group Summary The use cases are seen to enable the use of core BFD technologies in a fashion that leverages existing implementations and protocol machinery while providing a simplified and largely stateless infrastructure for continuity testing. While there were no objections for publishing this document, the WG also didn't show significant interest in it. Document Quality This document describes use cases. In general, the quality of the descriptions is good. Personnel Document Shepherd: Jeffrey Haas, co-chair BFD. Responsible Area Director: Alvaro Retana.
