Stephen Farrell has entered the following ballot position for
draft-ietf-isis-extended-sequence-no-tlv-05: No Objection

When responding, please keep the subject line intact and reply to all
email addresses included in the To and CC lines. (Feel free to cut this
introductory paragraph, however.)

Please refer to http://www.ietf.org/iesg/statement/discuss-criteria.html
for more information about IESG DISCUSS and COMMENT positions.

The document, along with other ballot positions, can be found here:


- last para of section 5 (before 5.1) could do
with a bit of a re-write, it's not very clear.

- section 7: When this mechanism is used, can an
attacker who can delete or re-order packets
(which is v. similar to one who can replay
packets) cause any new bad outcomes due to the
verification of the out-of-order arrival? (Sorry,
I don't know IS-IS enough to know the answer
there, it's probably obvious.) If so, then maybe
that argues that one ought note that this doesn't
address such threats (but that this is still I
guess worthwhile).
