                  PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing
               draft-sivabalan-pce-segment-routing-02.txt

Abstract

   Segment Routing (SR) enables any head-end node to select any path
   without relying on a hop-by-hop signaling technique (e.g., LDP or
   RSVP-TE).  It depends only on "segments" that are advertised by Link-
   State Interior Gateway Protocols (IGPs).  A Segment Routed Path can
   be derived from a variety of mechanisms, including an IGP Shortest
   Path Tree (SPT), explicit configuration, or a Path Computation
   Element (PCE).  This document specifies extensions to the Path
   Computation Element Protocol (PCEP) that allow a stateful PCE to
   compute and instantiate Traffic Engineering paths, as well as a PCC
   to request a path subject to certain constraint(s) and optimization
   criteria in SR networks.

Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

1.  Introduction

   SR technology leverages the source routing and tunneling paradigms.
   A source node can choose a path without relying on hop-by-hop
   signaling protocols such as LDP or RSVP-TE.  Each path is specified
   as a set of "segments" advertised by link-state routing protocols
   (IS-IS or OSPF).  [I-D.filsfils-rtgwg-segment-routing] provides an
   introduction to SR technology.  The corresponding IS-IS and OSPF
   extensions are specified in
   [I-D.previdi-isis-segment-routing-extensions] and
   [I-D.psenak-ospf-segment-routing-extensions], respectively.  Two
   types of segments have been defined; nodal and adjacency segments.  A
   nodal segment represents a path to a node, whereas an adjacency
   segment represents a specific adjacency to a node.  The SR
   architecture can be applied to the MPLS forwarding plane without any
   change, as well as to the IPv6 forwarding plane with a new type of
   routing extension header.  A Segment Identifier (SID) is a 32-bit
   value.  In the case of the MPLS data plane, an SR path corresponds to
   an MPLS Label Switching Path (LSP)

   A Segment Routed path (SR path) can be derived from an IGP Shortest
   Path Tree (SPT).  Segment Routed Traffic Engineering paths (SR-TE
   paths) may not follow IGP SPT.  Such paths may be chosen by a
   suitable network planning tool and provisioned on the source node of
   the SR-TE path.

   [RFC5440] describes Path Computation Element Protocol (PCEP) for
   communication between a Path Computation Client (PCC) and a Path
   Control Element (PCE) or between one a pair of PCEs.  A PCE computes
   paths for MPLS Traffic Engineering LSPs (MPLS-TE LSPs) based on
   various constraints and optimization criteria.
   [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce] specifies extensions to PCEP that allow a
   stateful PCE to compute and recommend network paths in compliance
   with [RFC4657] and defines objects and TLVs for MPLS-TE LSPs.
   Stateful PCEP extensions provide synchronization of LSP state between
   a PCC and a PCE or between a pair of PCEs, delegation of LSP control,
   reporting of LSP state from a PCC to a PCE, controlling the setup and
   path routing of an LSP from a PCE to a PCC.  Stateful PCEP extensions
   are intended for an operational model in which LSPs are configured on
   the PCC, and control over them is delegated to the PCE.

   A mechanism to dynamically instantiate LSPs on a PCC based on the
   requests from a stateful PCE or a controller using stateful PCE is

   specified in [I-D.crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp].  Such mechanism is
   useful in Software Driven Networks (SDN) applications, such as demand
   engineering, or bandwidth calendaring.

   It is possible to use a stateful PCE for computing one or more SR-TE
   paths taking into account various constraints and objective
   functions.  Once a path is chosen, the stateful PCE can instantiate
   an SR-TE path on a PCC using PCEP extensions specified in
   [I-D.crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp] using the SR specific PCEP
   extensions described in this document.  Additionally, using
   procedures described in this document, a PCC can request an SR path
   from either stateful or a stateless PCE.  This specification uses the
   PATH-SETUP-TYPE TLV and procedures specified in
   [I-D.sivabalan-pce-lsp-setup-type].

3.  Overview of PCEP Operation in SR Networks

   In SR networks, an ingress node of an SR path appends all outgoing
   packets with an SR header consisting of a list of Segment IDs (SIDs).
   The header has all necessary information to guide the packets from
   the ingress node to the egress node of the path, and hence there is
   no need for any signaling protocol.  A SID can represent a nodal
   segment representing a path to a node or adjacency segment
   representing path over a specific adjacency.

   In a PCEP session, path information is carried in the Explicit Route
   Object (ERO), which consists of a sequence of subobjects.  Various
   types of ERO subobjects have been specified in [RFC3209], [RFC3473],
   and [RFC3477].  In SR networks, a PCE needs to specify EROs
   containing SIDs (denoted as SR-EROs in this document), and a PCC
   needs to be capable of processing such EROs.  An SR-ERO can be
   included in the Path Computation LSP Initiate Request message
   (PCInitiate) defined in [I-D.crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp], as well
   as in the Path Computation LSP Update Request (PCUpd) and Path
   Computation LSP State Report (PCRpt) messages defined in Report
   (PCRpt) messages defined in [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce].

   When a PCEP session between a PCC and a PCE is established, both PCEP
   Speakers exchange information to indicate their ability to support
   SR-specific functionality.  This document does not preclude a PCEP
   message from containing different ERO types.  However, each subobject
   within an SR-ERO MUST represent an SID.  Furthermore, an LSP
   initially established using RSVP-TE can be updated using SR-ERO.
   This capability is useful when a network is migrated from RSVP-TE to
   SR technology.  Similarly, an LSP initially established using SR-ERO
   can updated to signal the LSP using RSVP-TE if necessary.

   A PCC MAY include an ERO object in a PCRpt message.  In SR networks,
   a PCC MAY learn the SR path actually taken by data packets and report
   that path to a PCE.  Methods used by a PCC to learn SR-TE paths are
   outside the scope of this document.

   In summary, this document:

   o  Defines a new PCEP capability, new subobjects, a new TLV, and new
      PCEP error codes.

   o  Specifies how two PCEP Speakers can establish a PCEP session that
      can carry SR-TE paths.

   o  Defines the formats of SR-specific PCEP messages in Backus-Naur
      Format (BNF).

   This document specifies SR extensions for the stateless PCE model
   defined in [RFC5440], as well as for the active stateful and passive
   stateful PCE models defined in [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce].

4.  SR-Specific PCEP Message Extensions

   As defined in [RFC5440], a PCEP message consists of a common header
   followed by a variable length body made up of mandatory and/or
   optional objects.  PCEP messages an their formats for stateless PCE
   are defined in [RFC5440].  PCEP messages and their formats for
   stateful PCE are defined in [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce].  PCEP
   messages and their formats for PCE-initiated LSP instantiation are
   defined in [I-D.crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp].

   This document defines changes to PCEP messages and their formats
   required to carry SR-specific information.

4.1.  The PCReq Message

   This document does not specify any changes to the PCReq message
   format.  This document requires the PATH-SETUP-TYPE TLV to be carried
   in the RP Object in order for a PCC to request SR-TE paths.

4.2.  The PCRep Message

   This document defines the format of the PCRep message carrying SR-TE
   paths.  The message is sent by a PCE to a PCC in response to a
   previously received PCReq message, where the PCC requested SR TE
   path.  The format of the SR-specific PCRep message is as follows:

      <PCRep Message> ::= <Common Header>
                          <response-list>
   Where:

      <response-list>::=<response>[<response-list>]

      <response> ::= <RP>
                     [<NO-PATH>]
                     [<path-list>]

   Where:
       <path-list>::=<SR-ERO>[<path-list>]

Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


   The RP and NO-PATH Objects are defined in [RFC5440].  The <SR-ERO>
   object contains the SR-TE path and is defined in Section 5.3.

4.3.  The PCInitiate Message

   The format of the PCInitiate message is as follows:

      <PCInitiate Message> ::= <Common Header>
                               <PCE-initiated-lsp-list>
   Where:

      <PCE-initiated-lsp-list> ::=
                 <PCE-initiated-lsp-request>[<PCE-initiated-lsp-list>]

      <PCE-initiated-lsp-request> ::= <SRP>
                                      <LSP>
                                      [<SR-ERO>]


   The <LSP> object in the Common Header MUST include the SYMBOLIC-PATH-
   NAME TLV.  The message MAY contain an <SR-ERO> object containing
   subobjects defining the SR-TE path as defined in Section 5.3.

4.4.  The PCRpt Message

   An SR-specific PCRpt message is sent by a PCC to a PCE to report the
   current state of an SR-TE Path.  A PCRpt message can carry more than
   one LSP State Report, but all LSP State reports in the SR-Specific
   PCRpt message MUST be for SR TE Paths.  A PCC can send an LSP State
   Report either in response to an LSP Update Request from a PCE, or
   asynchronously when the state of an SR-TE Path changes.

   The format of the SR-specific PCRpt message is as follows:

      <PCRpt Message> ::= <Common Header>
                          <state-report-list>
   Where:

      <state-report-list> ::= <state-report>[<state-report-list>]

      <state-report> ::= <SRP>
                         <LSP>
                         <sr-te-path>

   Where:
       <sr-te-path> ::= <SR-ERO>





Sivabalan, et al.        Expires April 19, 2014                 [Page 7]


Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


   The <SR-ERO> object contains the actual SR-TE path used by the PCC
   and is defined in Section 5.3.  The actual SR-TE Path may be
   different from the programmed SR-TE Path, for example, when the
   latter contains loose hops and the PCC must compute the path between
   loose hops locally.

   The <SRP> and <LSP> objects are defined in
   [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce].  The <LSP> object MUST include the
   SYMBOLIC-PATH-NAME TLV.

4.5.  The PCUpd Message

   An SR-Specific PCUpd message is sent by a PCE to a PCC to update an
   SR-TE Path.  A PCUpd message can carry more than one LSP Update
   Request.

   The format of the SR-specific PCUpd message is as follows:

      <PCUpd Message> ::= <Common Header>
                          <udpate-request-list>
   Where:

      <update-request-list> ::= <update-request>[<update-request-list>]

      <update-request> ::= <SRP>
                           <LSP>
                           <sr-te-path>
   Where:
      <sr-te-path>::= <SR-ERO>


   The <SR-ERO> object contains the SR-TE path computed by the PCE, and
   is defined in Section 5.3.  The <SRP> and <LSP> objects are defined
   in [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce].  The LSP object MUST include the
   SYMBOLIC-PATH-NAME TLV.  Note that unlike the RSVP-TE specific PCUpd
   message defined in [I-D.ietf-pce-stateful-pce], the path in the SR-
   specific PCUpd message does not have attributes - only hops specified
   in the <SR-ERO> object.

5.  Object Formats

5.1.  The OPEN Object

   This document defines a new optional TLV for use in the OPEN Object.

5.1.1.  The SR PCE Capability TLV





Sivabalan, et al.        Expires April 19, 2014                 [Page 8]


Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


   The SR-PCE-CAPABILITY TLV is an optional TLV for use in the OPEN
   Object to negotiate Segment Routing capability on the PCEP session.
   The format of the SR-PCE-CAPABILITY TLV is shown in the following
   figure:

      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
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
     |            Type=TBD           |            Length=4           |
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
     |         Reserved              |     Flags     |      MSD      |
     +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+


                  Figure 1: SR-PCE-CAPABILITY TLV format

   The code point for the TLV type is to be defined by IANA.  The TLV
   length is 4 octets.

   The 32-bit value is formatted as follows.  The "Maximum SID Depth" (1
   octet) field (MSD) specifies the maximum number of SIDs that a PCC is
   capable of imposing on a packet.  The "Flags" (1 octet) and
   "Reserved" (2 octets) fields are currently unused, and MUST be set to
   zero and ignored on receipt.

5.1.1.1.  Negotiating SR Capability

   The SR capability TLV is contained in the OPEN object.  By including
   the TLV in the OPEN message to a PCE, a PCC indicates its support for
   SR-TE Paths.  By including the TLV in the OPEN message to a PCC, a
   PCE indicates that it is capable of computing SR-TE paths.

   The number of SIDs that can be imposed on a packet depends on PCC's
   data plane's capability.  The default value of MSD is 0 meaning that
   a PCC does not impose any limitation on the number of SIDs included
   in any SR-TE path coming from PCE.  Once an SR-capable PCEP session
   is established with a non-default MSD value, the corresponding PCE
   cannot send SR-TE paths with SIDs exceeding the MSD value.  If a PCC
   needs to modify the MSD value, the PCEP session must be closed and
   re-established with the new MSD value.  If a PCEP session is
   established with a non-default MSD value, and the PCC receives an SR-
   TE path containing more SIDs than specified in the MSD value, the PCC
   MUST send out a PCErr message with Error-Type 10 (Reception of an
   invalid object) and Error-value 3 (Unsupported number of Segment
   ERO).

   The SR Capability TLV is meaningful only in the OPEN message sent
   from a PCC to a PCE.  As such, a PCE does not need to set MSD value



Sivabalan, et al.        Expires April 19, 2014                 [Page 9]


Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


   in outbound message to a PCC.  Similarly, an MSD value received by a
   PCC is ignored.  If there are multiple SR capability TLVs, only the
   first TLV is processed.

   All bits in the Reserved and Flags fields SHOULD be set to 0 on
   outbound OPEN messages, and MUST be ignored on inbound OPEN messages.

5.2.  The RP/SRP Object

   In order to setup an LSP using SR, RP or SRP object may carry PATH-
   SETUP-TYPE TLV specified in [I-D.sivabalan-pce-lsp-setup-type].  This
   document defines a new Path Setup Type (PST) for SR as follows:

   o  PST = 1: Path is setup using Segment Routing technique.

5.3.  The SR-ERO Object

   An SR-TE path consists of one or more SID(s) where each SID is
   associated with the identifier that represents the node or adjacency
   corresponding to the SID.  This identifier is referred to as the
   'Node or Adjacency Identifier' (NAI).  As described later, a NAI can
   be represented in various formats (e.g., IPv4 address, IPv6 address,
   etc).  Furthermore, a NAI is used only for troubleshooting purposes,
   and MUST not be used to replace or modify any fields in a data packet
   header.  An SR-ERO object consists of one or more ERO subobjects
   described in the following section.  Also, all subobjects within an
   SR-ERO MUST be of the SR-ERO subobject type.

5.3.1.  The SR-ERO Subobject

   An SR-ERO subobject consists of a 32-bit header followed by the SID
   and the NAI associated with the SID.  The SID is a 32-bit number.
   The size of the NAI depends on its respective type, as described in
   the following sections.

   The fields in the ERO Subobject are as follows:



Sivabalan, et al.        Expires April 19, 2014                [Page 10]


Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


   The 'L' Flag  indicates whether the subobject represents a loose-hop
      in the explicit route [RFC3209].  If this flag is unset, a PCC
      MUST not overwrite the SID value present in the SR-ERO subobject.
      Otherwise, a PCC MAY expand or replace one or more SID value(s) in
      the received SR-ERO based on its local policy.


   Type  is the type of the SR-ERO Subobject.  This document defines the
      SR-ERO Subobject type.  A new code point will be requested for the
      SR-ERO Subobject from IANA.


   Length  contains the total length of the subobject in octets,
      including the L, Type and Length fields.  Length MUST be at least
      4, and MUST be a multiple of 4.


   SID Type (ST)  indicates the type of information associated with the
      SID contained in the object body.  The SID-Type values are
      described later in this document.


   Flags  is used to carry any additional information pertaining to SID.
      Currently, the following flag bits are defined:



      *  M: When this bit is set, the SID value represents an MPLS label
         stack entry as specified in [RFC5462] where only the label
         value is specified by the PCE.  Other fields (TC, S, and TTL)
         fields MUST be considered invalid, and PCC MUST set these
         fields according to its local policy and MPLS forwarding rules.


      *  C: When this bit as well as the M bit are set, then the SID
         value represents an MPLS label stack entry as specified in
         [RFC5462], where all the entry's fields (Label, TC, S, and TTL)
         are specified by the PCE.  However, a PCC MAY choose to
         override TC, S, and TTL values according its local policy and
         MPLS forwarding rules.


      *  S: When this bit is set, the SID value in the subobject body is
         null.  In this case, the PCC is responsible for choosing the
         SID value, e.g., by looking up its Traffic Engineering Database
         (TED) using node/adjacency identifier in the subobject body.

Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


      *  F: When this bit is set, the NAI value in the subobject body is
         null.


   SID  is the Segment Identifier.


   NAI  contains the NAI associated with the SID.  Depending on the
      value of ST, the NAI can have different format as described in the
      following section.

5.3.2.  NAI Associated with SID

   This document defines the following NAIs:

   'IPv4 Node ID'  is specified as an IPv4 address.  In this case, ST
      and Length are 1 and 12 respectively.


   'IPv6 Node ID'  is specified as an IPv6 address.  In this case, ST
      and Length are 2 and 24 respectively.


   'IPv4 Adjacency'  is specified as a pair of IPv4 addresses.  In this
      case, ST and Length are 3 and 16, respectively, and the format of
      the NAI is shown in the following figure:

   We are yet to decide if another SID subobject is required for
   unnumbered adjacency with 128 bit node ID.

5.3.3.  SR-ERO Processing

   A PCEP Speaker that does not recognize the new ERO subobject in the
   PCCreate, PCUpd or PCRpt message MUST reject the entire PCEP message
   and MUST send a PCE error message with Error-Type=3 ("Unknown
   Object") and Error-Value=2 ("Unrecognized object Type") or Error-
   Type=4 ("Not supported object") and Error-Value=2 ("Not supported
   object Type"), defined in [RFC5440].

   When the SID represents an MPLS label (i.e. the M bit is set), its
   value (20 most significant bits) MUST be larger than 15, unless it is
   special purpose label, such as an Entropy Label Indicator (ELI) or an
   Entropy Label (EL).  If a PCEP Speaker receives a label ERO subobject
   with an invalid value, it MUST send the PCE error message with Error-
   Type = "Reception of an invalid object" and Error-Value = "Bad label
   value".  If both M and C bits of an ERO subobject are set, and if a
   PCEP Speaker finds erroneous setting in one or more of TC, S, and TTL
   fields, it MUST send a PCE error with Error-Type = "Reception of an
   invalid object" and Error-Value = "Bad label format".





Sivabalan, et al.        Expires April 19, 2014                [Page 13]


Internet-Draft     PCEP Extensions for Segment Routing      October 2013


   If a PCC receives a stack of SR-ERO subobjects, and the number of
   stack exceeds the maximum number of SIDs that the PCC can impose on
   the packet, it MAY send a PCE error with Error-Type = "Reception of
   an invalid object" and Error-Value = "Unsupported number of Segment
   ERO subobjects".

   When a PCEP speaker detects that all subobjects of SR-ERO are not
   identical, it MUST send PCE error with Error-Type = "Reception of an
   invalid object" and Error-Value = "Non-identical ERO subobjects" and
   close the PCEP session.

6.  Backward Compatibility

   An LSR that does not support the SR PCEP capability negotiation
   cannot recognize the SR-ERO subobjects.  As such, it shall send a
   PCEP error with Error-Type = 4 (Not supported object) and Error-Value
   = 2 (Not supported object Type) as per [RFC5440].

7.  Management Considerations

7.1.  Policy

   PCEP implementation:

   o  Can enable SR-PCEP capability either by default or via explicit
      configuration.

   o  May generate PCEP error due to unsupported number of SR-ERO
      subobjects either by default or via explicit configuration.

7.2.  The PCEP Data Model

   A PCEP MIB module is defined in [I-D.ietf-pce-pcep-mib] needs be
   extended to cover additional functionality provided by [RFC5440] and
   [I-D.crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp].  Such extension will cover the
   new functionality specified in this document.

8.  Security Considerations

   The security considerations described in [RFC5440] and
   [I-D.crabbe-pce-pce-initiated-lsp] are applicable to this
   specification.  No additional security measure is required.

9.  IANA Considerations

9.1.  PCEP Objects

   IANA is requested to allocate a ERO subobject type (recommended value
   = 5) for the SR-ERO subobject.

9.2.  PCEP-Error Object

   This document defines new Error-Type and Error-Value for the
   following new conditions:


    Error-Type  Meaning
       10       Reception of an invalid object

                 Error-value=2:  Bad label value
                 Error-value=3:  Unsupported number of Segment ERO
                                 subobjects
                 Error-value=4:  Bad label format
                 Error-value=5:  Non-identical ERO subobjects

9.3.  PCEP TLV Type Indicators

   This document defines the following new PCEP TLVs:

       Value   Meaning                              Reference
      -------- ------------------------------------ -----------------

                                  Table 1

9.4.  New Path Setup Type

   This document defines a new setup type for the PATH-SETUP-TYPE TLV as
   follows:

     Value   Description                                   Reference

       1     Traffic engineering path is setup using       This document
