Abstract

RFC 4360 [RFC4360] defines the BGP "Extended Communities" (EC) attribute. This attribute consists of a sequence of eight-octet "extended communities". The high-order octet is defined to be the "Type" field. Each Type has a range of values for "Transitive Extended Community Types" and a range of values for "Non-transitive Extended Community Types". Some of these ranges are further subdivided into a sub-range of values to be assigned by IANA under the "Standards Action" policy, a sub-range of values to be assigned

               IANA Registries for BGP Extended Communities

Abstract

   This document reorganizes the IANA registries for the type values and    sub-type values of the BGP Extended Communities attribute and the BGP    IPv6-Address-Specific Extended Communities attribute.  This is done    in order to remove interdependencies among the registries, thus    making it easier for IANA to determine which codepoints are available    for assignment in which registries.  This document also clarifies the    information that must be provided to IANA when requesting an    allocation from one or more of these registries.  These changes are    compatible with the existing allocations and thus do not affect    protocol implementations.  The changes will, however, impact the    "IANA Considerations" sections of future protocol specifications.    This document updates RFC 4360 and RFC 5701.
