Dear sidr WG:

As has been discussed in the mailing list and at the sidrops meeting last week in Chicago, there is interest to not have the BGPsec document (draft-ietf-sidr-bgpsec-protocol) depend normatively on the Extended Messages work (draft-ietf-idr-bgp-extended-messages).  Based on that discussion, Sriram and I have come up with proposed diffs – please see the attachment (-23 has not been posted yet).

To summarize, the changes are: (1) remove mention/references of/to draft-ietf-idr-bgp-extended-messages, and (2) add the following text in Section 4.1. (General Guidance):

    All BGPsec update messages MUST conform to BGP's maximum message
    size.  If the resulting message exceeds the maximum message size,
    then the guidelines in Section 9.2 of RFC 4271 [RFC4271] MUST be

[For easier reference, I put the relevant text from 9.2 below.]

The result is then that draft-ietf-sidr-bgpsec-protocol doesn’t depend on draft-ietf-idr-bgp-extended-messages.  Instead, when referring to the size of the messages, it depends on rfc4271.

Please let me know if you have any concerns.  I will wait a week before proceeding.

Given that this document has already been approved by the IESG, the process going forward is:

- consult the WG (this thread)
- inform the IESG of the intent
- inform the IETF (ietf@ietf.org)<mailto:ietf@ietf.org)> of the changes
- publish an updated draft
- continue the publication process

Each step may, obviously, require additional discussion and could result in changes to the current plan.




9.2.  Update-Send Process

   If, due to the limits on the maximum size of an UPDATE message (see
   Section 4), a single route doesn't fit into the message, the BGP
   speaker MUST not advertise the route to its peers and MAY choose to
   log an error locally.
