Dear Chairs, Dear ANIMA WG members,

During IETF106, the authors here had many technical discussions on the information distribution topic with several group members. Many thanks for the constructive comments/advices.

Hereby, according to the feedbacks, a revised version is updated, trying to better motivate the problem and introduce the proposed solution. We will appreciate any further comments.

Meanwhile, as one of the chartered milestone topic work, we were wondering if the draft can be adopted as a WG draft working in progress on the standard track. Thanks for your considerations.

Best Regards,

A new version of I-D, draft-liu-anima-grasp-distribution-13.txt
has been successfully submitted by Xun Xiao and posted to the IETF repository.

Name:		draft-liu-anima-grasp-distribution
Revision:	13
Title:		Information Distribution in Autonomic Networking
Document date:	2019-12-12
Group:		Individual Submission
Pages:		21

   This document proposes a solution for information distribution in
   autonomic networks. Information distribution is categorized into two
   different modes: 1) instantaneous distribution; 2) publication for
   retrieval. In the former case, the information is sent, propagates
   and is disposed of after reception. In the latter case, information
   needs to be stored in the network.

   The capabilities to distribute information are basic and fundamental
   needs for an autonomous network (cf. ANI [I-D.ietf-anima-reference-
   model]). This document describes typical use cases of information
   distribution in ANI and requirements to ANI, such that rich
   information distribution can be natively supported. The document
   proposes extensions to the autonomic nodes and suggests an
   implementation based on GRASP extensions as a protocol on the wire.


Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission until the htmlized version and diff are available at
