   Annexe 1 to Cooperative Agreement Between the Internet Society and

   the International Organization for Standardization / International

   Electrotechnical Commission / Joint Technical Committee 1 / Sub

   Committee 6 (ISO/IEC JTC1/SC6): IS-IS Routing Protocols

   Date:  2003-01-28

   This annexe records the agreed collaborative process for the further

   development and standardisation of the Intermediate System to

   Intermediate System (IS-IS) intra-domain routing protocol (ISO/IEC

   10589).

1. Introduction

   The IS-IS intra-domain routing protocols, originally developed in

   ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC6, have been successfully deployed in the Internet for

   several years.

RFC 3563             IETF - JTC1 Agreement on IS-IS            July 2003

   ISO/IEC/JTC1/SC6 is the JTC1 sub-committee which has responsibility

   for maintenance of the IS-IS standard (ISO/IEC 10589).

   The IS-IS Working Group of the IETF is chartered to develop

   extensions to the IS-IS protocol to be used within the scope of the

   Internet.

   This addendum documents the agreed process for the future development

   of IS-IS by both organizations.

2. Definitions

2.1 Core IS-IS Mechanisms

   Core IS-IS Mechanisms are subsystems with associated algorithms, data

   structures, and PDU formats as specified in (ISO/IEC 10589),

   constituting the core of the IS-IS protocol and including the

   following elements:

   a) Framework of PDU formats, including TLVs defined in [10589]

   b) Encapsulation of PDUs

   c) Adjacency state machine and formation logic

   d) DIS election algorithm

   e) Initial LSP synchronization...
