    Extensions to OSPF for Advertising Optional Router Capabilities

Abstract

   It is useful for routers in an OSPFv2 or OSPFv3 routing domain to
   know the capabilities of their neighbors and other routers in the
   routing domain.  This document proposes extensions to OSPFv2 and
   OSPFv3 for advertising optional router capabilities.  The Router
   Information (RI) Link State Advertisement (LSA) is defined for this
   purpose.  In OSPFv2, the RI LSA will be implemented with an Opaque
   LSA type ID.  In OSPFv3, the RI LSA will be implemented with a unique
   LSA type function code.  In both protocols, the RI LSA can be
   advertised at any of the defined flooding scopes (link, area, or
   autonomous system (AS)).  This document obsoletes RFC 4970 by
   providing a revised specification that includes support for
   advertisement of multiple instances of the RI LSA and a TLV for
   functional capabilities.

RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


1.  Introduction

   It is useful for routers in an OSPFv2 [OSPF] or OSPFv3 [OSPFv3]
   routing domain to know the capabilities of their neighbors and other
   routers in the routing domain.  This can be useful for both the
   advertisement and discovery of OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 capabilities.
   Throughout this document, OSPF will be used when the specification is
   applicable to both OSPFv2 and OSPFv3.  Similarly, OSPFv2 or OSPFv3
   will be used when the text is protocol specific.

   OSPF uses the options field in LSAs and hello packets to advertise
   optional router capabilities.  In the case of OSPFv2, all the bits in
   this field have been allocated so additional optional capabilities
   cannot be advertised.  This document describes extensions to OSPF to
   advertise these optional capabilities via Opaque LSAs in OSPFv2 and
   LSAs with a unique type in OSPFv3.  For existing OSPF capabilities,
   backwards compatibility issues dictate that this advertisement is
   used primarily for informational purposes.  For future OSPF
   extensions, this advertisement MAY be used as the sole mechanism for
   advertisement and discovery.

   This document obsoletes RFC 4970 by providing a revised specification
   including support for advertisement of multiple instances of the RI
   LSA and a TLV for functional capabilities.

1.1.  Requirements Notation

   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 [RFC-KEYWORDS].

1.2.  Summary of Changes from RFC 4970

   This document includes the following changes from RFC 4970 [RFC4970]:

   1. The main change is that an OSPF router will be able to advertise
      multiple instances of the OSPF Router Information LSA.  This
      change permeates through much of the document.

   2. Additionally, Section 2.6 includes an additional TLV for
      functional capabilities.  This is in contrast to the existing TLV
      that is used to advertise capabilities for informational purposes
      only.

RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


   3. The IANA allocation policy has been changed from "Standards
      Action" to "IETF Review" [IANA-GUIDE] for the following
      registries:

      o  OSPFv3 LSA Function Codes
      o  OSPF Router Information (RI) TLVs
      o  OSPF Router Informational Capability Bits
      o  OSPF Router Functional Capability Bits

   4. Finally, references have been updated for documents that have
      become RFCs and RFCs that have been obsoleted since the
      publication of RFC 4970.

2.  OSPF Router Information (RI) LSA

2.1.  OSPFv2 Router Information (RI) Opaque LSA

   OSPFv2 routers will advertise a link scoped, area-scoped, or AS-
   scoped Opaque LSA [OPAQUE].  The OSPFv2 RI LSA has an Opaque type of
   4 and the Opaque ID is the RI LSA Instance ID.  The first Opaque ID,
   i.e., 0, SHOULD always contain the Router Informational Capabilities
   TLV and, if advertised, the Router Functional Capabilities TLV.  RI
   LSA instances subsequent to the first can be used for information
   that doesn't fit in the first instance.

   OSPFv2 routers will advertise a link-scoped, area-scoped, or AS-
   scoped Opaque LSA [OPAQUE].  The OSPFv2 Router Information LSA has an
   Opaque type of 4.  The Opaque ID specifies the LSA Instance ID with
   the first instance always having an Instance ID of 0.

   The format of the TLVs within the body of an RI LSA is as defined in
   Section 2.3.

2.2.  OSPFv3 Router Information (RI) Opaque LSA

   The OSPFv3 Router Information LSA has a function code of 12 while the
   S1/S2 bits are dependent on the desired flooding scope for the LSA.
   The U bit will be set indicating that the OSPFv3 RI LSA should be
   flooded even if it is not understood.  The Link State ID (LSID) value
   for this LSA is the Instance ID.  The first Instance ID, i.e., 0,
   SHOULD always contain the Router Informational Capabilities TLV and,
   if advertised, the Router Functional Capabilities TLV.  OSPFv3 Router
   Information LSAs subsequent to the first can be used for information
   that doesn't fit in the first instance.  OSPFv3 routers MAY advertise
   multiple RI LSAs per flooding scope.

RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


2.3.  OSPF Router Information LSA TLV Format

   The format of the TLVs within the body of an RI LSA is the same as
   the format used by the Traffic Engineering Extensions to OSPF [TE].
   The LSA payload consists of one or more nested Type/Length/Value
   (TLV) triplets.  The format of each TLV is:

       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             |             Length            |
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
      |                            Value...                           |
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

                             Figure 3.  TLV Format

   The Length field defines the length of the value portion in octets
   (thus a TLV with no value portion would have a length of 0).  The TLV
   is padded to 4-octet alignment; padding is not included in the length
   field (so a 3-octet value would have a length of 3, but the total
   size of the TLV would be 8 octets).  Nested TLVs are also 4-octet
   aligned.  For example, a 1-octet value would have the length field
   set to 1, and 3 octets of padding would be added to the end of the
   value portion of the TLV.  The padding is composed of undefined bits.
   Unrecognized types are ignored.

   When a new Router Information LSA TLV is defined, the specification
   MUST explicitly state whether the TLV is applicable to OSPFv2 only,
   OSPFv3 only, or both OSPFv2 and OSPFv3.

2.4.  OSPF Router Informational Capabilities TLV

   An OSPF router advertising an OSPF RI LSA MAY include the Router
   Informational Capabilities TLV.  If included, it MUST be the first
   TLV in the first instance, i.e., Instance 0, of the OSPF RI LSA.
   Additionally, the TLV MUST accurately reflect the OSPF router's
   capabilities in the scope advertised.  However, the informational
   capabilities advertised have no impact on OSPF protocol operation;
   they are advertised purely for informational purposes.











Lindem, et al.               Standards Track                    [Page 6]


RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


   The format of the Router Informational Capabilities TLV is 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

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

      Type     A 16-bit field set to 1.

      Length   A 16-bit field that indicates the length of the value
               portion in octets and will be a multiple of 4 octets
               dependent on the number of capabilities advertised.
               Initially, the length will be 4, denoting 4 octets of
               informational capability bits.

      Value    A variable-length sequence of capability bits rounded to
               a multiple of 4 octets padded with undefined bits.
               Initially, there are 4 octets of capability bits.  Bits
               are numbered left to right starting with the most
               significant bit being bit 0.

           Figure 4.  OSPF Router Informational Capabilities TLV

   The Router Informational Capabilities TLV MAY be followed by optional
   TLVs that further specify a capability.

2.5.  Assigned OSPF Router Informational Capability Bits

   The following informational capability bits have been assigned:

      Bit       Capabilities

      0         OSPF graceful restart capable [GRACE]
      1         OSPF graceful restart helper  [GRACE]

2.6.  OSPF Router Functional Capabilities TLV

   This specification also defines the Router Functional Capabilities
   TLV for advertisement in the OSPF Router Information LSA.  An OSPF
   router advertising an OSPF RI LSA MAY include the Router Functional
   Capabilities TLV.  If included, it MUST be the included in the first
   instance of the LSA.  Additionally, the TLV MUST reflect the
   advertising OSPF router's actual functional capabilities since the
   information will be used to dictate OSPF protocol operation in the
   flooding scope of the containing OSPF RI LSA.  If the TLV is not
   included or the length doesn't include the assigned OSPF functional
   capability bit, the corresponding OSPF functional capability is
   implicitly advertised as not being supported by the advertising OSPF
   router.

   The format of the Router Functional Capabilities TLV is as follows:

       0                   1                   2                   3

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

      Type     A 16-bit field set to 2.

      Length   A 16-bit field that indicates the length of the value
               portion in octets and will be a multiple of 4 octets
               dependent on the number of capabilities advertised.
               Initially, the length will be 4, denoting 4 octets of
               informational capability bits.

      Value    A variable-length sequence of capability bits rounded
               to a multiple of 4 octets padded with undefined bits.
               Initially, there are 4 octets of capability bits.  Bits
               are numbered left to right starting with the most
               significant bit being bit 0.

             Figure 6.  OSPF Router Functional Capabilities TLV

   The Router Functional Capabilities TLV MAY be followed by optional
   TLVs that further specify a capability.  In contrast to the Router
   Informational Capabilities TLV, the OSPF extensions advertised in
   this TLV MAY be used by other OSPF routers to dictate protocol
   operation.  The specifications for functional capabilities advertised
   in this TLV MUST describe protocol behavior and address backwards
   compatibility.

RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


2.7.  Flooding Scope of the Router Information LSA

   The flooding scope for a Router Information LSA is determined by the
   LSA type.  For OSPFv2, a type 9 (link-scoped), type 10 (area-scoped),
   or type 11 (AS-scoped) Opaque LSA may be flooded.  For OSPFv3, the S1
   and S2 bits in the LSA type determine the flooding scope.  If AS-wide
   flooding scope is chosen, the originating router should also
   advertise area-scoped LSA(s) into any attached Not-So-Stubby Area
   (NSSA) area(s).  An OSPF router MAY advertise different capabilities
   when both NSSA area-scoped LSA(s) and an AS-scoped LSA are
   advertised.  This allows functional capabilities to be limited in
   scope.  For example, a router may be an area border router but only
   support traffic engineering (TE) in a subset of its attached areas.

   The choice of flooding scope is made by the advertising router and is
   a matter of local policy.  The originating router MAY advertise
   multiple RI LSAs with the same Instance ID as long as the flooding
   scopes differ.  TLV flooding-scope rules will be specified on a per-
   TLV basis and MUST be specified in the accompanying specifications
   for future Router Information LSA TLVs.

3.  Backwards Compatibility

   For backwards compatibility, previously advertised Router Information
   TLVs SHOULD continue to be advertised in the first instance, i.e., 0,
   of the Router Information LSA.  If a Router Information TLV is
   advertised in multiple Router Information LSA instances and the
   multiple instance processing is not explicitly specified in the RFC
   defining that Router Information TLV, the Router Instance TLV in the
   Router Information LSA with the numerically smallest Instance ID will
   be used and subsequent instances will be ignored.

4.  Security Considerations

   This document describes both a generic mechanism for advertising
   router capabilities and TLVs for advertising informational and
   functional capabilities.  The capability TLVs are less critical than
   the topology information currently advertised by the base OSPF
   protocol.  The security considerations for the generic mechanism are
   dependent on the future application and, as such, should be described
   as additional capabilities are proposed for advertisement.  Security
   considerations for the base OSPF protocol are covered in [OSPF] and
   [OSPFv3].

5.  IANA Considerations

5.1.  OSPFv2 Opaque LSA Type Assignment

   [RFC4970] defined the Router Information Opaque LSA as type 4 in the
   "Opaque Link-State Advertisements (LSA) Option Types" registry.  IANA
   has updated the reference for that entry to point to this RFC.

5.2.  OSPFv3 LSA Function Code Assignment

   [RFC4970] created the registry for "OSPFv3 LSA Function Codes".  IANA
   has updated the reference for that registry to point to this RFC.
   References within that registry to [RFC4970] have been updated to
   point to this RFC; references to other RFCs are unchanged.

   The definition and assignment policy has been updated as follows.

   This registry is now comprised of the fields Value, LSA Function Code
   Name, and Reference.  The OSPFv3 LSA function code is defined in
   Appendix A.4.2.1 of [OSPFv3].  Values 1-11 and 13-15 have already
   been assigned.  The OSPFv3 LSA function code 12 has been assigned to
   the OSPFv3 Router Information (RI) LSA as defined herein.

         +-----------+-------------------------------------+
         | Range     | Assignment Policy                   |
         +-----------+-------------------------------------+
         | 0         | Reserved (not to be assigned)       |
         |           |                                     |
         | 16-255    | Unassigned (IETF Review)            |
         |           |                                     |
         | 256-8175  | Reserved (No assignments)           |
         |           |                                     |
         | 8176-8183 | Experimentation (No assignments)    |
         |           |                                     |
         | 8184-8190 | Vendor Private Use (No assignments) |
         |           |                                     |
         | 8191      | Reserved (not to be assigned)       |
         +-----------+-------------------------------------+

                Figure 7.  OSPFv3 LSA Function Codes

   o  The assignment policy for OSPFv3 LSA function codes in the range
      16-255 has changed and are now assigned subject to IETF Review.
      New values are assigned through RFCs that have been shepherded
      through the IESG as AD-Sponsored or IETF WG documents
      [IANA-GUIDE].





Lindem, et al.               Standards Track                   [Page 10]


RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


   o  OSPFv3 LSA function codes in the range 8176-8183 are for
      experimental use; these will not be registered with IANA and MUST
      NOT be mentioned by RFCs.

   o  OSPFv3 LSAs with an LSA Function Code in the Vendor Private Use
      range 8184-8190 MUST include the Enterprise Code [ENTERPRISE-CODE]
      as the first 4 octets following the 20 octets of LSA header.

   o  If a new LSA Function Code is documented, the documentation MUST
      include the valid combinations of the U, S2, and S1 bits for the
      LSA.  It SHOULD also describe how the Link State ID is to be
      assigned.

5.3.  OSPF RI LSA TLV Type Assignment

   [RFC4970] created the registry for "OSPF Router Information (RI)
   TLVs".  IANA has updated the reference for this registry to point to
   this RFC.  References within that registry to [RFC4970] have been
   updated to point to this RFC; references to other RFCs are unchanged.

   The definition and assignment policy has been updated as follows.

   The registry is now comprised of the fields Value, TLV Name, and
   Reference.  Values 3-9 have already been assigned.  Value 1 has been
   assigned to the Router Informational Capabilities TLV and value 2 has
   been assigned to the Router Functional Capabilities TLV as defined
   herein.

            +-------------+-----------------------------------+
            | Range       | Assignment Policy                 |
            +-------------+-----------------------------------+
            | 0           | Reserved (not to be assigned)     |
            |             |                                   |
            | 10-32767    | Unassigned (IETF Review)          |
            |             |                                   |
            | 32768-32777 | Experimentation (No assignments)  |
            |             |                                   |
            | 32778-65535 | Reserved (Not to be assigned)     |
            +-------------+-----------------------------------+

                         Figure 8.  OSPF RI TLVs

   o  Types in the range 10-32767 are to be assigned subject to IETF
      Review.  New values are assigned through RFCs that have been
      shepherded through the IESG as AD-Sponsored or IETF WG documents
      [IANA-GUIDE].





Lindem, et al.               Standards Track                   [Page 11]


RFC 7770               OSPF Capability Extensions          February 2016


   o  Types in the range 32778-65535 are reserved and are not to be
      assigned at this time.  Before any assignments can be made in this
      range, there MUST be a Standards Track RFC that specifies IANA
      Considerations that cover the range being assigned.

5.4.  Registry for OSPF Router Informational Capability Bits

   [RFC4970] created the registry for "OSPF Router Informational
   Capability Bits".  IANA has updated the reference for this registry
   to point to this RFC.  The definition and assignment policy has been
   updated as follows.

   o  This registry is now comprised of the fields Bit Number,
      Capability Name, and Reference.

   o  The values are defined in Section 2.6.  All Router Informational
      Capability TLV additions are to be assigned through IETF Review
      [IANA-GUIDE].

5.5.  Registry for OSPF Router Functional Capability Bits

   IANA has created a subregistry for "OSPF Router Functional Capability
   Bits" within the "Open Shortest Path First v2 (OSPFv2) Parameters"
   registry.  This subregistry is comprised of the fields Bit Number,
   Capability Name, and Reference.  Initially, the subregistry will be
   empty but will be available for future capabilities.  All Router
   Functional Capability TLV additions are to be assigned through IETF
   Review [IANA-GUIDE].
