Abstract:
   <FAb>

   This memo discusses setting up special-purpose network connections
   using existing IETF technologies.  These connections are called IETF
   network slices for the purposes of this memo.  The memo discusses the
   general framework for this setup, the necessary system components and
   interfaces, and how abstract requests can be mapped to more specific
   technologies.  The memo also discusses related considerations with
   monitoring and security.

   This memo is intended for discussing interfaces and technologies.  It
   is not intended to be a new set of concrete interfaces or
   technologies.  Rather, it should be seen as an explanation of how
   some existing, concrete IETF VPN and traffic-engineering technologies
   can be used to create IETF network slices.  Note that there are a
   number of these technologies, and new technologies or capabilities
   keep being added.  This memo is also not intended presume any
   particular technology choice.

   <DAb>

   This document provides a definition of the term "IETF Network Slice"
   for use within the IETF and specifically as a reference for other
   IETF documents that describe or use aspects of network slices.

   The document also describes the characteristics of an IETF network
   slice, related terms and their meanings, and explains how IETF
   network slices can be used in combination with end-to-end network
   slices or independent of them.
