INTERNET-DRAFT                                          BGP LS For TRILL


1. Introduction

   BGP has been extended to distribute IGP link-state and traffic
   engineering information to some external components [RFC7752], such
   as the PCE and ALTO servers. The information can be used by these
   external components to compute a MPLS-TE path across IGP areas,
   visualize and abstract network topology, and the like.

   TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) protocol
   [RFC6325] provides a solution for least cost transparent routing in
   multi-hop networks with arbitrary topologies and link technologies,
   using [IS-IS] [RFC7176] link-state routing and a hop count. TRILL
   switches are sometimes called RBridges (Routing Bridges).

   The TRILL protocol has been deployed in many data center networks.
   Data center automation is a vital step to increase the speed and
   agility of business. An SDN controller as an external component
   normally can be used to provide centralized control and automation
   for the data center network. Making a holistic view of whole network
   topology available to the SDN controller is an important part for
   data center network automation and troubleshooting.

                      Figure 1: TRILL interconnection


   In Data Center interconnection scenario illustrated in Figure 1, a
   single SDN Controller or network management system (NMS) can be used
   for end-to-end network management. End-to-end topology visibility on
   the SDN controller or NMS is very useful for whole network automation
   and troubleshooting. BGP LS can be used by the external SDN
   controller to collect multiple TRILL domain's link-state.

INTERNET-DRAFT                                          BGP LS For TRILL


   BGP LS also can be used for MAC address reachability information
   synchronization across multiple TRILL domains. The transported MAC
   reachability information and the like is for telemetry purposes and
   for use by SDN controller(s) where the coordination or protocol
   between the SDN controllers is out of scope.

   This document describes the detailed BGP LS extension mechanisms for
   TRILL link state and MAC address reachability information
   distribution.

3. Carrying TRILL Link-State Information in BGP

   In [RFC7752], four NLRI types are defined as follows: Node NLRI, Link
   NLRI, IPv4 Topology Prefix NLRI and IPv6 Topology Prefix NLRI. For
   TRILL link-state distribution, the Node NLRI and Link NLRI are
   extended to carry layer 3 gateway role and link MTU information.
   TRILL specific attributes are carried using opaque Node Attribute
   TLVs, such as nickname, distribution tree number and identifiers,
   interested VLANs/Fine Grained Label, and multicast group address,
   etc.

   To differentiate TRILL protocol from layer 3 IGP protocol, a new
   TRILL Protocol-ID is defined.

            +-------------+----------------------------------+
            | Protocol-ID | NLRI information source protocol |
            +-------------+----------------------------------+
            | 1           | IS-IS Level 1                    |
            | 2           | IS-IS Level 2                    |
            | 3           | OSPFv2                           |
            | 4           | Direct                           |
            | 5           | Static configuration             |
            | 6           | OSPFv3                           |
            | TBD         | TRILL                            |
            +-------------+----------------------------------+

                       Table 1: Protocol Identifiers


   ESADI (End Station Address Distribution Information) protocol
   [RFC7357] is a per data label control plane MAC learning solution.
   MAC address reachability information is carried in ESADI packets.
   Compared with data plane MAC learning solution, ESADI protocol has
   security and fast update advantage that are pointed out in [RFC7357].

   For an RBridge that is announcing participation in ESADI, the RBridge
   can distribute MAC address reachability information to external
   components using BGP. A new NLRI type of "MAC Reachability NLRI" is
   requested for the MAC address reachability distribution.

3.1 Node Descriptors

   The Node Descriptor Sub-TLV types include Autonomous System and BGP-
   LS Identifier, IS-IS Area-ID and IGP Router-ID. TRILL uses a fixed
   zero Area Address as specified in [RFC6325], Section 4.2.3.  This is
   encoded in a 4-byte Area Address TLV (TLV #1) as follows:

      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

                        Figure 3: Area Address TLV




3.1.1 IGP Router-ID

   Similar to layer 3 IS-IS, TRILL protocol uses 7-octet "IS-IS ID" as
   the identity of an RBridge or a pseudonode, IGP Router ID sub-TLV in
   Node Descriptor TLVs contains the 7-octet "IS-IS ID". In TRILL
   network, each RBridge has a unique 48-bit (6-octet) IS-IS System ID.
   This ID may be derived from any of the RBridge's unique MAC addresses
   or configured. A pseudonode is assigned a 7-octet ID by the DRB
   (Designated RBridge) that created it, the DRB is similar to the
   "Designated Intermediate System" (DIS) corresponding to a LAN.



3.2 MAC Address Descriptors

   The "MAC Address Descriptor" field is a set of Type/Length/Value
   (TLV) triplets. "MAC Address Descriptor" TLVs uniquely identify an
   MAC address reachable by a Node. The following attributes TLVs are
   defined:

   +--------------+-----------------------+----------+-----------------+
   | TLV Code     | Description           | Length   | Value defined   |
   | Point        |                       |          | in:             |
   +--------------+-----------------------+----------+-----------------+

   Length is 4 plus a multiple of 6.

   The bits of 'V' and 'F' are used to identify Data Label type and are
   defined as follows:

                  +----------+-------------------------+

                 Table 4: Data Label Type Bits Definitions


    Notes: If BGP LS is used for NVO3 network MAC address distribution
   between external SDN Controller and NVE, Data Label can be used to
   represent 24 bits VN ID.

3.3.1.2 Opaque Node Attribute TLV

   The Opaque Node Attribute TLV is used as the envelope to
   transparently carry TRILL specific information. In [RFC7176], there
   are the following Sub-TLVs in the Router Capability and MT-
   Capability TLVs and the Group Address (GADDR) TLV that need to be
   carried. Future possible TRILL TLVs/Sub-TLVs extension also can be
   carried using the Opaque Node Attribute TLV.

3.3.2. Link Attribute TLVs

   Link attribute TLVs are TLVs that may be encoded in the BGP-LS
   attribute with a link NLRI. Besides the TLVs that has been defined in
   [RFC7752] section 3.3.2 Table 9, the following 'Link Attribute' TLV
   is provided for TRILL.

     +-----------+----------------+--------------+------------------+
     | TLV Code  | Description    | IS-IS TLV    | Defined in:      |
     | Point     |                | /Sub-TLV     |                  |
     +-----------+----------------+--------------+------------------+
     | TBD       | Link MTU       |   22/28      | [RFC7176]/2.4    |
     +-----------+----------------+--------------+------------------+

4. Operational Considerations

   This document does not require any MIB or Yang model to configure
   operational parameters.

   Any implementation of the protocol in this specification (i.e. that
   distributes TRILL Link-State information using BGP), MUST do the
   malformed attribute checks below, and if it detects a malformed
   attribute, it should use the 'Attribute Discard' action per [I-
   D.ietf.idr-error-handling] section 2.

   An implementation MUST perform the following expanded BGP-LS
   syntactic check for determining if the message is malformed:

   o  Does the sum of all TLVs found in the BGP LS attribute correspond
      to the BGP LS path attribute length ?

   o  Does the sum of all TLVs found in the BGP MP_REACH_NLRI attribute
      correspond to the BGP MP_REACH_NLRI length ?

   o  Does the sum of all TLVs found in the BGP MP_UNREACH_NLRI
      attribute correspond to the BGP MP_UNREACH_NLRI length ?

   o  Does the sum of all TLVs found in a Node-, Link, prefix (IPv4 or
      IPv6) NLRI attribute correspond to the Node-, Link- or Prefix
      Descriptors 'Total NLRI Length' field ?

   o  Does any fixed length TLV correspond to the TLV Length field in
      this document ?

   o Does the sum of MAC reachability TLVs equal the length of the
      field?

   In addition, the following checks need to be made for the fields
      specific to the BGP LS for TRILL:

         PROTOCOL ID is TRILL

         NLRI types are valid per Table 2

         MAC Reachability NLRI has correct format including:

         o  Identifier (64 bits),

         o  local node descriptor with AREA address TLV has the form
            found in Figure 2

         opaque TLV support the range of ISIS-TLV/SUB-TLV shown in Table
            3,  and link TLVs support the range in Figure 8.

5. Security Considerations

   Procedures and protocol extensions defined in this document do not
   affect the BGP security model. See [RFC6952] for details.



6. IANA Considerations

   For all of the following assignments, [this document] is the
   reference.

   IANA is requested to assign one Protocol-ID for "TRILL" from the BGP-
   LS registry of Protocol-IDs.

   IANA is requested to assign one NLRI Type for "MAC Reachability" from
   the BGP-LS registry of NLRI Types.

   IANA is requested to assign one Node Flag bit for "Layer 3 Gateway"
   from the BGP-LS registry of BGP-LS Attribute TLVs.

   IANA is requested to assign one new TLV type for "Link MTU" from the
   BGP-LS registry of BGP-LS Attribute TLVs.
