Hi,

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 describes benchmarking activities for mpls networks. By  
documenting that they should happen only on private disconnected  
network make no security issues,  even though the equipment should be  
configured as in production environments, so it should already be  
secured.

I see no addition security consideration then whats already documented  
in the draft.

Love
