  Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) in Segment Routing Networks
                          Using MPLS Dataplane
                       draft-mirsky-spring-bfd-01

Abstract

   Segment Routing architecture leverages the paradigm of source
   routing.  It can be realized in the Multiprotocol Label Switching
   (MPLS) network without any change to the data plane.  A segment is
   encoded as an MPLS label and an ordered list of segments is encoded
   as a stack of labels.  Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) is
   expected to monitor any kind of paths between systems.  This document
   defines how to use Label Switched Path Ping to bootstrap and control
   path in reverse direction of a BFD session on the Segment Routing
   static MPLS tunnel.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC5880], [RFC5881], and [RFC5883] established the Bidirectional
   Forwarding Detection (BFD) protocol for IP networks.  [RFC5884] and
   [RFC7726] set rules of using BFD Asynchronous mode over Multiprotocol
   Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP).  These latter
   standards implicitly assume that the egress BFD peer, which is the
   egress Label Edge Router (LER), will use the shortest path route
   regardless of the path the ingress LER uses to send BFD control
   packets towards it.

Internet-Draft             BFD in SPRING MPLS                  June 2017


   This document defines use of LSP Ping for Segment Routing networks
   over MPLS dataplane [I-D.ietf-mpls-spring-lsp-ping] to bootstrap and
   control path of a BFD session from the egress to ingress LER using
   static MPLS tunnel.

1.1.  Conventions used in this document

1.1.1.  Terminology

   BFD: Bidirectional Forwarding Detection

   FEC: Forwarding Equivalence Class

   MPLS: Multiprotocol Label Switching

   LSP: Label Switching Path

   LER: Label Edge Router

1.1.2.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

2.  Bootstrapping BFD session over Segment Routed tunnel

   As demonstrated in [I-D.ietf-mpls-spring-lsp-ping] introduction of
   Segment Routing network domains with an MPLS data plane requires
   three new sub-TLVs that MAY be used with Target Forwarding
   Equivalence Class (FEC) TLV.  Section 6.1 addresses use of the new
   sub-TLVs in Target FEC TLV in LSP ping and LSP traceroute.  For the
   case of LSP ping the [I-D.ietf-mpls-spring-lsp-ping] states that:

      Initiator MUST include FEC(s) corresponding to the destination
      segment.

      Initiator, i.e. ingress LSR, MAY include FECs corresponding to
      some or all of segments imposed in the label stack by the ingress
      LSR to communicate the segments traversed.

   It has been noted in [RFC5884] that a BFD session monitors for
   defects particular <MPLS LSP, FEC> tuple.  [RFC7726] clarified how to
   establish and operate multiple BFD sessions for the same <MPLS LSP,
   FEC> tuple.  Because only ingress edge router is aware of the SR-
   based explicit route the egress edge router can associate the LSP



Mirsky, et al.          Expires December 24, 2017               [Page 3]


Internet-Draft             BFD in SPRING MPLS                  June 2017


   ping with BFD Discriminator TLV with only one of the FECs it
   advertised for the particular segment.  Thus this document clarifies
   that:

      When LSP Ping is used to bootstrap a BFD session the FEC
      corresponding to the destination segment to be associated with the
      BFD session MUST be as the very last sub-TLV in the Target FEC
      TLV.

   Encapsulation of a BFD Control packet in Segment Routing network with
   MPLS dataplane MUST follow Section 7 [RFC5884] when IP/UDP header
   used and MUST follow Section 3.4 [RFC6428] without IP/UDP header
   being used.

3.  Use BFD Reverse Path TLV over SDN-provisioned Segment Routed MPLS
    Tunnel

   When a BFD session is used to monitor a source routed unidirectional
   path there may be a need to direct egress BFD peer to use specific
   path for the reverse direction of the BFD session by using the BFD
   Reverse Path TLV [I-D.ietf-mpls-bfd-directed].  For the case of MPLS
   dataplane, Segment Routing Architecture
   [I-D.ietf-spring-segment-routing] explains that "a segment is encoded
   as an MPLS label.  An ordered list of segments is encoded as a stack
   of labels."  YANG Data Model for MPLS Static LSPs
   [I-D.ietf-mpls-static-yang] models outgoing MPLS labels to be imposed
   as leaf-list [RFC6020], i.e., as array of rt-types:mpls-label
   [I-D.ietf-rtgwg-routing-types] Following on that, this document
   defines Segment Routing Static MPLS Tunnel sub-TLV that MAY be used
   with the BFD Reverse Path TLV [I-D.ietf-mpls-bfd-directed].  The
   format of the sub-TLV is presented in Figure 1.  BFD Reverse TLV MAY
   include zero or one SR Static MPLS Tunnel sub-TLV.

           Figure 1: Segment Routing Static MPLS Tunnel sub-TLV

   The Segment Routing Tunnel sub-TLV Type is two octets in length, and
   has a value of TBD (to be assigned by IANA as requested in
   Section 5).

   The egress LSR MUST use the Value field as label stack for BFD
   control packets for the BFD session identified by the source IP
   address of the MPLS LSP Ping packet and the value in the BFD
   Discriminator TLV.  Label Entries MUST be in network order.

   As in [I-D.ietf-mpls-bfd-directed], empty BFD Reverse TLV requires
   the egress BFD peer switch the reverse path of the BFD session,
   specified by BFD Discriminator TLV, to IP network.  If more than one
   SR Static MPLS Tunnel sub-TLV is present, then the egress BFD peer
   MUST send Echo Reply with Return Code field set to "Too Many TLVs
   Detected" Table 2.

   The Segment Routing Tunnel sub-TLV MAY be used in Reply Path TLV
   defined in [RFC7110]

4.  BFD Reverse Path TLV over Segment Routed MPLS Tunnel with Dynamic
    Control Plane

   When Segment Routed domain with MPLS data plane uses distributed
   tunnel computation BFD Reverse Path TLV MAY use Target FEC sub-TLVs
   defined in [I-D.ietf-mpls-spring-lsp-ping].
