                  Advertising a Router's Local Addresses               in OSPF Traffic Engineering (TE) Extensions


   OSPF Traffic Engineering (TE) extensions are used to advertise TE    Link State Advertisements (LSAs) containing information about TE-    enabled links.  The only addresses belonging to a router that are    advertised in TE LSAs are the local addresses corresponding to TE-    enabled links, and the local address corresponding to the Router ID.

   In order to allow other routers in a network to compute Multiprotocol    Label Switching (MPLS) Traffic Engineered Label Switched Paths (TE    LSPs) to a given router's local addresses, those addresses must also    be advertised by OSPF TE.

   This document describes procedures that enhance OSPF TE to advertise    a router's local addresses.
