I have reviewed this document as part of the security directorate's ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being processed by the IESG. These comments were written primarily for the benefit of the security area directors. Document editors and WG chairs should treat these comments just like any other last call comments.

This document specifies an optional new mechanism for trill that supports more fine-grained control of the load balancing of multi-cast packets. The changes are to the routing protocol and does not make it any more security sensitive than it already is and hence introduces no new security issues.
