This document describes various use cases for Seamless Bidirectional
Forwarding Detection (S-BFD) and provides requirements such that
protocol mechanisms allow for simplified detection of forwarding
failures.

These use cases support S-BFD, which is a simplified mechanism for
using BFD with a large proportion of negotiation aspects eliminated,
accelerating the establishment of a BFD session.  The benefits of
S-BFD include quick provisioning, as well as improved control and
flexibility for network nodes initiating path monitoring.

This document is a product of the Bidirectional Forwarding Detection Working Group of the IETF.
