IESG Note

The IESG notes that the set of documents describing the RSIP technology imply significant host and gateway changes for a complete implementation. In addition, the floating of port numbers can cause problems for some applications, preventing an RSIP-enabled host from interoperating transparently with existing applications in some cases (e.g., IPsec). Finally, there may be significant operational complexities associated with using RSIP. Some of these and other complications are outlined in section 6 of the RFC 3102, as well as in the Appendices of RFC 3104. Accordingly, the costs and benefits of using RSIP should be carefully weighed against other means of relieving address shortage.

Abstract

This document contains an SLP service type template that describes the advertisements made by RSIP servers for their services. Service Location Protocol (SLP) is an IETF standards track protocol specifically designed to allow clients to find servers offering particular services. Since RSIP (Realm Specific IP) clients require a mechanism to discover RSIP servers, SLP is a natural match for a solution. The service type template is the basis for an Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) standard definition of the advertisements offered by RSIP servers, an important step toward interoperability.

1. Introduction

Realm Specific IP (RSIP) [7] enables an RSIP client in one realm to borrow addresses and other resources from another realm. It does so by engaging in an RSIP protocol [1] exchange with an RSIP server. The RSIP protocol requires the RSIP server to have a p...
