                     Application-aware Targeted LDP
                   draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp-07


Abstract

   Recent targeted LDP (tLDP) applications such as remote loop-free
   alternate (LFA) and BGP auto discovered pseudowire may automatically
   establish a tLDP session to any LSR in a network.  The initiating LSR
   has information about the targeted applications to administratively
   control initiation of the session. However, the responding LSR has no
   such information to control acceptance of this session. This document
   defines a mechanism to advertise and negotiate Targeted Applications
   Capability (TAC) during LDP session initialization.  As the
   responding LSR becomes aware of targeted applications, it may
   establish a limited number of tLDP sessions for certain applications.
   In addition, each targeted application is mapped to LDP Forwarding
   Equivalence Class (FEC) Elements to advertise only necessary LDP FEC-
   label bindings over the session. This document updates RFC 7473.

1  Introduction

   LDP uses extended discovery mechanism to establish the tLDP adjacency
   and subsequent session as described in [RFC5036]. An LSR initiates
   extended discovery by sending tLDP Hello to specific address. The
   remote LSR decides to either accept or ignore the tLDP Hello based on
   local configuration only. For an application such as FEC 128
   pseudowire, the remote LSR is configured with the source LSR address
   so that it can use that information to accept or ignore given tLDP
   Hello.

   Applications such as Remote LFA and BGP auto discovered pseudowire
   automatically initiate asymmetric extended discovery to any LSR in a
   network based on local state only. With these applications, the
   remote LSR is not explicitly configured with the source LSR address.
   So the remote LSR either responds or ignores all tLDP Hellos.

   In addition, since the session is initiated and established after
   adjacency formation, the responding LSR has no targeted applications
   information to choose the targeted application it is configured to
   support. Also, the initiating LSR may employ a limit per application
   on locally initiated automatic tLDP sessions, however the responding
   LSR has no such information to employ a similar limit on the incoming
   tLDP sessions. Further, the responding LSR does not know whether the
   source LSR is establishing a tLDP session for configured, automatic
   or both applications.

   This document proposes and describes a solution to advertise Targeted
   Application Capability (TAC), consisting of a targeted application
   list, during initialization of a tLDP session. It also defines a
   mechanism to enable an new application and disable an old application
   after session establishment. This capability advertisement provides
   the responding LSR with the necessary information to control the
   acceptance of tLDP sessions per application. For instance, an LSR may
   accept all BGP auto discovered tLDP sessions as defined in [RFC6074]
   but may only accept limited number of Remote LFA tLDP sessions as
   defined in [RFC7490]

   Also, targeted LDP application is mapped to LDP FEC element type to
   advertise specific application FECs only, avoiding the advertisement
   of other unnecessary FECs over a tLDP session.

1.2 Terminology

   This document uses terminology discussed in [RFC7473] along with
   others defined in this document.

    TAC   : Targeted Application Capability
    TAE   : Targeted Application Element
    TA-Id : Targeted Application Identifier
    SAC   : State (FEC-Label bindings) Advertisement Control Capability

2. Targeted Application Capability

2.1 Encoding

   An LSR MAY advertise that it is capable to negotiate a targeted LDP
   application list over a tLDP session by using the Capability
   Advertisement as defined in [RFC5561] and encoded as follows:


        0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1

     |                                               |
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

     This document defines a new optional capability TLV of type TBD1
     called 'Targeted Application Capability (TAC)'. Flag "U" MUST be
     set to 1 to indicate that this capability must be silently ignored
     if unknown.

     It's encoded as follows:

       Targeted Application Element(TAE)

        0                   1                   2                   3

       Targeted Application Identifier (TA-Id):
       a 16 bit Targeted Application Identifier value.

INTERNET DRAFT      <draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp>    February 7, 2017


       E-bit: The enable bit indicates whether the sender is
       advertising or withdrawing the TAE. The E-bit value is used as
       follows:

         1 - The TAE is advertising the targeted application.
         0 - The TAE is withdrawing the targeted application.


2.2 Procedures

   At tLDP session establishment time, a LSR MAY include a new
   capability TLV, TAC TLV, as an optional TLV in the LDP Initialization
   message. The TAC TLV's Capability data MAY consists of none, one or
   more TAE each pertaining to a unique TA-Id that a LSR supports over
   the session. If the receiver LSR receives the same TA-Id in more than
   one TAE, it MUST process the first element and ignore the duplicate
   elements. If the receiver LSR received an unknown TA-Id in the TAE,
   it MUST silently ignore such a TAE and continue processing the rest
   of the TLV.

   If the receiver LSR does not receive the TAC TLV in the
   Initialization message or it does not understand the TAC TLV, the TAC
   negotiation MUST be considered unsuccessful and the session
   establishment MUST proceed as per [RFC5036]. On the receipt of a
   valid TAC TLV, an LSR MUST generate its own TAC TLV with TAEs
   consisting of unique TA-Ids that it supports over the tLDP session.
   If there is at least one TAE common between the TAC TLV it has
   received and its own, the session MUST proceed to establishment as
   per [RFC5036]. If not, A LSR MUST send a 'Session Rejected/Targeted
   Application Capability Mis-Match' Notification message to the peer
   and close the session. The initiating LSR SHOULD tear down the
   corresponding tLDP adjacency after sent or receipt of a 'Session
   Rejected/Targeted Application Capability Mis-Match' Notification
   message to or from the responding LSR respectively.

   If both the peers advertise TAC TLV, an LSR decides to establish or
   close a tLDP session based on the negotiated targeted application
   list. For instance, suppose a initiating LSR advertises A, B and C as
   TA-Ids. Further, suppose the responding LSR advertises C, D and E as
   TA-Ids. Than the negotiated TA-Id, as per both the LSRs is C. In the
   second instance, suppose a initiating LSR advertises A, B and C as
   TA-Ids and the responding LSR, which acts as a passive LSR,
   advertises all the applications - A, B, C, D and E that it supports
   over this session. Than the negotiated targeted applications as per
   both the LSRs are A, B and C. In the last instance, suppose the
   initiating LSR advertises A, B and C as a TA-Ids and the responding
   LSR advertises D and E as TA-Ids, than the negotiated targeted
   applciations as per both the LSRs are none. Therefore, if the

INTERNET DRAFT      <draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp>    February 7, 2017


   intersection of the sets of received and sent TA-Id is null, then LSR
   MUST sends 'Session Rejected/Targeted Application Capability Mis-
   Match' Notification message to the initiating LSR and close the
   session.

   When the responding LSR playing the active role in LDP session
   establishment receives a 'Session Rejected/Targeted Application
   Capability Mis-Match' Notification message, it MUST set its session
   setup retry interval to a maximum value, as 0xffff. The session MAY
   stay in NON EXISTENT state. When it detects a change in the
   initiating LSR or local LSR configuration pertaining to TAC TLV, it
   MUST clear the session setup back off delay associated with the
   session to re-attempt the session establishment. A LSR detects
   configuration change on the other LSR with the receipt of tLDP Hello
   message that has a higher configuration sequence number than the
   earlier tLDP Hello message.

   When the initiating LSR playing the active role in LDP session
   establishment receives a 'Session Rejected/Targeted Application
   Capability Mis-Match' Notification message, either it MUST close the
   session and tear down the corresponding tLDP adjacency or it MUST set
   its session setup retry interval to a maximum value, as 0xffff.

   If it decides to tear down the associated tLDP adjacency, the session
   is destroyed on the initiating as well as the responding LSR. The
   initiating LSR MAY take appropriate actions if it is unable to bring
   up the tLDP session. For instance, if an automatic session intended
   to support the Remote LFA application is rejected by the responding
   LSR, the initiating LSR may inform the IGP to calculate another PQ
   node [RFC7490] for the route or set of routes. More specific actions
   are a local matter and outside the scope of this document.

   If it sets the session setup retry interval to maximum, the session
   MAY stay in a non-existent state. When this LSR detects a change in
   the responding LSR configuration or its own configuration pertaining
   to TAC TLV, it MUST clear the session setup back off delay associated
   with the session in order to re-attempt the session establishment.

   After a tLDP session has been established with TAC capability, the
   initiating and responding LSR MUST distribute FEC-label bindings for
   the negotiated applications only. For instance, if the tLDP session
   is established for BGP auto discovered pseudowire, only FEC 129 label
   bindings MUST be distributed over the session. Similarly, a LSR
   operating in downstream on demand mode MUST request FEC-label
   bindings for the negotiated applications only.

   If the Targeted Application Capability and Dynamic Capability,
   described in [RFC5561], are negotiated during session initialization,



Esale, et al.           Expires August 11, 2017                 [Page 7]


INTERNET DRAFT      <draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp>    February 7, 2017


   TAC MAY be re-negotiated after session establishment by sending an
   updated TAC TLV in LDP Capability message. The updated TAC TLV
   carries TA-Ids with incremental update only. The updated TLV MUST
   consist of one or more TAEs with E-bit set or E-bit off to advertise
   or withdraw the new and old application respectively. This may lead
   to advertisements or withdrawals of certain types of FEC-Label
   bindings over the session or tear down of the tLDP adjacency and
   subsequently the session.

   The Targeted Application Capability is advertised on tLDP session
   only. If the tLDP session changes to link session, a LSR SHOULD
   withdraw it with S bit set to 0. Similarly, if the link session
   changes to tLDP, a LSR SHOULD advertise it via the Capability
   message. If the capability negotiation fails, this may lead to
   destruction of the tLDP session.

   By default, LSR SHOULD accept tLDP hellos in order to then accept or
   reject the tLDP session based on the application information.

   In addition, LSR SHOULD allow the configuration of any TAI in order
   to facilitate private TAI's usage by a network operator.

2.3 LDP message procedures

2.3.1 Initialization message

  1. The S-bit of the Targeted Application Capability TLV MUST be
     set to 1 to advertise Targeted Application Capability and
     SHOULD be ignored on the receipt as defined in [RFC5561]

  2. The E-bit of the Targeted Application Element MUST be set to 1 to
     enable Targeted application and SHOULD be ignored on the receipt.

  3. An LSR MAY add State Control Capability by mapping Targeted
     Application Element to State Advertisement Control (SAC) Elements
     as defined in Section 4.

2.3.2 Capability message

  The initiating or responding LSR may re-negotiate the TAC after local
  configuration change with the Capability message.

  1. The S-bit of TAC is set to 1 or 0 to advertise or withdraw it.

  2. After configuration change, If there is no common TAE between
     its new TAE list and peers TAE list, the LSR MUST send a
     'Session Rejected/Targeted Application Capability Mis-Match'
     Notification message and close the session.

INTERNET DRAFT      <draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp>    February 7, 2017


  3. If there is a common TAE, a LSR MAY also update SAC Capability
     based on updated TAC as described in section 4 and send the
     updated TAC and SAC capabilities in a Capability message to
     the peer.

  4. A receiving LSR processes the Capability message with TAC TLV.
     If the S-bit is set to 0, the TAC is disabled for the session.


  5. If the S-bit is set to 1, a LSR process a list of TAEs from
     TACs capability data with E-bit set to 1 or 0 to update the
     peer's TAE.

3. Targeted Application FEC Advertisement Procedures

   The targeted LDP application MUST be mapped to LDP FEC element types
   as follows to advertise only necessary LDP FEC-Label bindings over
   the tLDP session.

4. Interaction of Targeted Application Capabilities and State
   Advertisement Control Capabilities

   As described in this document, the set of TAEs negotiated between two
   LDP peers advertising TAC represents the willingness of both peers to
   advertise state information for a set of applications. The set of
   applications negotiated by the TAC mechanism is symmetric between the
   two LDP peers. In the absence of further mechanisms, two LDP peers
   will both advertise state information for the same set of
   applications.

   As described in [RFC7473], State Advertisement Control(SAC) TLV can
   be used by an LDP speaker to communicate its interest or disinterest
   in receiving state information from a given peer for a particular
   application.  Two LDP peers can use the SAC mechanism to create
   asymmetric advertisement of state information between the two peers.

   The TAC negotiation facilitates the awareness of targeted
   applications to both the peers. It enables them to advertise only
   necessary LDP FEC-label bindings corresponding to negotiated

   applications. With the SAC, the responding LSR is not aware of
   targeted applications. Thus it may be unable to communicate its
   interest or disinterest to receive state information from the peer.
   Therefore, when the responding LSR is not aware of targeted
   applications such a remote LFA and BGP auto discovered pseudowires,
   TAC mechanism should be used and when the responding LSR is aware
   (with appropriate configuration) of targeted applications such as FEC
   128 pseudowire, SAC mechanism should be used. Also after TAC
   mechanism makes the responding LSR aware of targeted application, the
   SAC mechanism may be used to communicate its disinterest in receiving
   state information from the peer for a particular negotiated
   application, creating asymmetric advertisements.

   Thus, the TAC mechanism enables two LDP peers to symmetrically
   advertise state information for negotiated targeted applications.
   Further, the SAC mechanism enables both of them to asymmetrically
   disable receipt of state information for some of the already
   negotiated targeted applications. Collectively, both TAC and SAC
   mechanisms can be used to control the FEC-label bindings that are
   advertised over the tLDP session. For instance, suppose the
   initiating LSR establishes a tLDP session to the responding LSR for
   Remote LFA and FEC 129 PW targeted applications with TAC. So each LSR
   advertises the corresponding FEC-Label bindings.  Further, suppose
   the initiating LSR is not the PQ node for responding LSRs Remote LFA
   IGP calculations. In such a case, the responding LSR may use the SAC
   mechanism to convey its disinterest in receiving state information
   for Remote LFA targeted LDP application.

   For a given tLDP session, the TAC mechanism can be used without the
   SAC mechanism, and the SAC mechanism can be used without the TAC
   mechanism. It is useful to discuss the behavior when TAC and SAC
   mechanisms are used on the same tLDP session. The TAC mechanism MUST
   take precedence over the SAC mechanism with respect to enabling
   applications for which state information will be advertised. For a
   tLDP session using the TAC mechanism, the LDP peers MUST NOT
   advertise state information for an application that has not been
   negotiated in the most recent TAE list (referred to as an un-
   negotiated application).  This is true even if one of the peers
   announces its interest in receiving state information that
   corresponds to the un-negotiated application by sending a SAC TLV.
   In other words, when TAC is being used, SAC cannot and should not
   enable state information advertisement for applications that have not
   been enabled by TAC.

   On the other hand, the SAC mechanism MUST take precedence over the
   TAC mechanism with respect to disabling state information
   advertisements. If an LDP speaker has announced its disinterest in
   receiving state information for a given application to a given peer

   using the SAC mechanism, its peer MUST NOT send state information for
   that application, even if the two peers have negotiated that the
   corresponding application via the TAC mechanism.


   For the purposes of determining the correspondence between targeted
   applications defined in this document and application state as
   defined in [RFC7473] an LSR MUST use the following mappings:

      LDPv4 Tunneling - IPv4 Prefix-LSPs
      LDPv6 Tunneling - IPv6 Prefix-LSPs
      LDPv4 Remote LFA - IPv4 Prefix-LSPs
      LDPv6 Remote LFA - IPv6 Prefix-LSPs
      LDP FEC 128 PW - FEC128 P2P-PW
      LDP FEC 129 PW - FEC129 P2P-PW


   An LSR MUST map Targeted Application to LDP capability as follows:

      mLDP Tunneling - P2MP Capability, MP2MP Capability
                       and HSMP LSP Capability TLV
      mLDP node protection - P2MP Capability, MP2MP Capability
                       and HSMP LSP Capability TLV

5. Use cases

5.1 Remote LFA Automatic Targeted session

   An LSR determines that it needs to form an automatic tLDP session to
   remote LSR based on IGP calculation as described in [RFC7490] or some
   other mechanism, which is outside the scope of this document. The LSR
   forms the tLDP adjacency and during session setup, constructs an
   Initialization message with TAC TLV with TAE as Remote LFA. The
   receiver LSR processes the LDP Initialization message and verifies
   whether it is configured to accept a Remote LFA tLDP session. If it
   is, it may further verify that establishing such a session does not
   exceed the configured limit for Remote LFA sessions. If all these
   conditions are met, the receiver LSR may respond back with an
   Initialization message with TAC corresponding to Remote LFA, and
   subsequently the session may be established.

   After the session has been established with TAC capability, the
   sender and receiver LSR distribute IPv4 or IPv6 FEC label bindings
   over the session. Further, the receiver LSR may determine that it
   does not need these FEC label bindings. So it may disable the receipt
   of these FEC label bindings by mapping targeted application element
   to state control capability as described in section 4.

INTERNET DRAFT      <draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp>    February 7, 2017


5.2 FEC 129 Auto Discovery Targeted session

   BGP auto discovery MAY determine whether an LSR needs to initiate an
   auto-discovery tLDP session with a border LSR. Multiple LSRs MAY try
   to form an auto discovered tLDP session with a border LSR. So, a
   service provider may want to limit the number of auto discovered tLDP
   sessions a border LSR may accept. As described in Section 2, LDP may
   convey targeted applications with TAC TLV to border LSR. A border LSR
   may establish or reject the tLDP session based on local
   administrative policy. Also, as the receiver LSR becomes aware of
   targeted applications, it can also employ an administrative policy
   for security. For instance, it can employ a policy 'accept all auto-
   discovered session from source-list'.

   Moreover, the sender and receiver LSR MUST exchange FEC 129 label
   bindings only over the tLDP session.

5.3 LDP over RSVP and Remote LFA targeted session

   A LSR may want to establish a tLDP session to a remote LSR for LDP
   over RSVP tunneling and Remote LFA applications. The sender LSR may
   add both these applications as a unique Targeted Application Element
   in the Targeted Application Capability data of a TAC TLV. The
   receiver LSR MAY have reached a configured limit for accepting Remote
   LFA automatic tLDP sessions, but it may also be configured to accept
   LDP over RSVP tunneling. In such a case, the tLDP session is formed
   for both LDP over RSVP and Remote LFA applications as both needs same
   FECs - IPv4 and/or IPv6.

5.4 mLDP node protection targeted session

   A merge point LSR may determine that it needs to form automatic tLDP
   session to the upstream point of local repair (PLR) LSR for MP2P and
   MP2MP LSP [RFC6388] node protection as described in the [RFC7715].
   The MPT LSR may add a new targeted LDP application - mLDP protection,
   as a unique TAE in the Targeted Application Capability Data of a TAC
   TLV and send it in the Initialization message to the PLR. If the PLR
   is configured for mLDP node protection and establishing this session
   does not exceed the limit of either mLDP node protection sessions or
   automatic tLDP sessions, the PLR may decide to accept this session.
   Further, the PLR may respond back with the initialization message
   with a TAC TLV that has one of the TAEs as - mLDP protection and the
   session proceeds to establishment as per [RFC5036].

6. Security Considerations

   The Capability procedure described in this document will apply and
   does not introduce any change to LDP Security Considerations section



Esale, et al.           Expires August 11, 2017                [Page 13]


INTERNET DRAFT      <draft-ietf-mpls-app-aware-tldp>    February 7, 2017


   described in [RFC5036].

   As described in [RFC5036], DoS attacks via Extended Hellos can be
   addressed by filtering Extended Hellos using access lists that define
   addresses with which Extended Discovery is permitted.  Further, as
   described in section 5.2 of this document, a LSR can employ a policy
   to accept all auto-discovered Extended Hellos from the configured
   source addresses list.

   Also for the two LSRs supporting TAC, the tLDP session is only
   established after successful negotiation of the TAC. The initiating
   and receiving LSR MUST only advertise TA-Ids that they support. In
   other words, what they are configured for over the tLDP session. In
   addition, when there is no common targeted LDP application between
   two LSRs due to administrative policy, the tLDP session SHOULD NOT be
   established.

7. IANA Considerations

   This document requires the assignment of a new code point for a
   Capability Parameter TLVs from the IANA managed LDP registry "TLV
   Type Name Space", corresponding to the advertisement of the Targeted
   Applications capability. IANA is requested to assign the lowest
   available value after 0x050B.

      -----  --------------------------------  ---------
      TBD1   Targeted Applications capability  [this document]

   This document requires the assignment of a new code point for a
   status code from the IANA managed registry "STATUS CODE NAME SPACE"
   on the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) Parameters page,
   corresponding to the notification of session Rejected/Targeted
   Application Capability Mis-Match. IANA is requested to assign the
   lowest available value after 0x0000004B.

      Value  Description                       Reference
      -----  --------------------------------  ---------
      TBD2   Session Rejected/Targeted
             Application Capability Mis-Match  [this document]


   This document also creates a new name space 'the LDP Targeted
   Application Identifier' on the Label Distribution Protocol (LDP)
   Parameters page, that is to be managed by IANA. The range is 0x0001-
   0xFFFE, with the following values requested in this document.
