                     Label Advertisement Discipline
             for LDP Forwarding Equivalence Classes (FECs)

Abstract

The label advertising behavior of an LDP speaker for a given Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC) is governed by the FEC type and not necessarily by the LDP session's negotiated label advertisement mode. This document updates RFC 5036 to make that fact clear. It also updates RFCs 3212, 4447, 5918, 6388, and 7140 by specifying the label advertisement mode for all currently defined LDP FEC types. Status of This Memo This is an Internet Standards Track document. This document is a product of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). It represents the consensus of the IETF community. It has received public review and has been approved for publication by the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG). Further information on Internet Standards is available in Section 2 of RFC 5741.

1. Introduction

The Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) [RFC5036] allows label advertisement mode negotiation at the time of session establishment. The LDP specification also dictates that only a single label advertisement mode be negotiated, agreed upon, and used for a given LDP session between two Label Switching Routers (LSRs). The negotiated label advertisement mode defined in RFC 5036 and carried in the LDP Initialization message is only indicative. It indicates how the LDP speakers on a session will advertise labels for some Forwarding Equivalence Classes (FECs), but it is not a rule that restricts the speakers to behave in a specific way. Furthermore, for some FEC types the advertising behavior of the LDP speaker is governed by the FEC type and not by the negotiated behavior. This document updates [RFC5036] to make that fact clear. It also updates [RFC3212], [RFC4447], [RFC5918], [RFC6388], and [RFC7140] to indicate, for each FEC type that has already been defined, whether
Top   ToC   RFC7358 - Page 3
   the label binding advertisements for the FEC are constrained by the
   negotiated label advertisement mode or not.  Furthermore, this
   document specifies the label advertisement mode to be used for all
   currently defined FECs.

2. Label Advertisement Discipline

To remove any ambiguity and conflict regarding a label advertisement discipline among different FEC types sharing a common LDP session, this document specifies a label advertisement discipline for FEC types. This document introduces the following types for specifying a label advertisement discipline for a FEC type: - DU (Downstream Unsolicited) - DoD (Downstream on Demand) - As negotiated (DU or DoD) - Upstream ([RFC6389]) - Not applicable - Unknown

2.1. Update to RFC 5036

Section 3.5.3 of [RFC5036] is updated to add the following two statements under the description of "A, Label Advertisement Discipline": - Each document defining an LDP FEC must state the applicability of the negotiated label advertisement discipline for label binding advertisements for that FEC. If the negotiated label advertisement discipline does not apply to the FEC, the document must also explicitly state the discipline to be used for the FEC. - This document defines the label advertisement discipline for the following FEC types: +----------+----------+--------------------------------+ | FEC Type | FEC Name | Label Advertisement Discipline | +----------+----------+--------------------------------+ | 0x01 | Wildcard | Not applicable | | 0x02 | Prefix | As negotiated (DU or DoD) | +----------+----------+--------------------------------+
Top   ToC   RFC7358 - Page 4

2.2. Specification for LDP FECs

The label advertisement discipline for currently defined LDP FEC types is listed in Section 4. This document updates the respective RFCs in which these FECs are introduced and defined.

3. Security Considerations

This document only clarifies the applicability of an LDP session's label advertisement mode and hence does not add any LDP security mechanics and considerations to those already defined in the LDP specification [RFC5036].

4. IANA Considerations

This document mandates the specification of a label advertisement discipline for each defined FEC type and hence IANA's "Forwarding Equivalence Class (FEC) Type Name Space" registry under IANA's "Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) Parameters" registry has been extended as follows: - Added a new column titled "Label Advertisement Discipline" with the following possible values: o DU o DoD o As negotiated (DU or DoD) o Upstream o Not applicable o Unknown - Made this document an additional reference for the registry itself and for all affected registrations. - Kept other columns of the registry in place and populated as they were.

   For the currently assigned FEC types, the updated registry looks
   like:
