*Subject:* [trill] draft-ietf-trill-channel-tunnel-05 - 2 week WG LC (5/29
to 6/12)

This is to begin a 2 week WG LC for draft-ietf-trill-channel-tunnel-05
(5/29 to 6/12).  The authors (Donald, Mohammed, Yizhou) should send a note
to the list indicating whether they know if any IPR.

You can access the draft at:

A summary of the document is:

   The IETF TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links)

   protocol includes an optional mechanism, called RBridge Channel, that

   is specified in RFC 7178, for the transmission of typed messages

   between TRILL switches in the same campus and between TRILL switches

   and end stations on the same link. This document specifies two

   optional extensions to the RBridge Channel protocol: (1) A standard

   method to tunnel a variety of payload types by encapsulating them in

   an RBridge Channel message; and (2) A method to support security

   facilities for RBridge Channel messages. This document updates RFC


Please answer the following questions:

1)      Does this draft enhance RFC7178 and is it ready for WG LC?

2)      Do you have any concerns regarding the mechanisms?
