Technical Summary

Corruption of the Remainining Lifetime Field in a Link State PDU can
go undetected.  In certain scenarios this may cause or exacerbate
flooding storms.  It is also a possible denial of service attack
vector.  This document defines a backwards compatible solution to
this problem.

Working Group Summary

 Work progressed smoothly. 

Document Quality

There is at least one implementation with others planned.
