Nodes attached to multiple networks may encounter problems from conflicting configuration between the networks or attempts to simultaneously use more than one network. While various techniques are currently used to tackle these problems [RFC6419], in many cases issues may still appear. The Multiple Interfaces Problem Statement document [RFC6418] describes the general landscape and discusses many of the specific issues and scenario details.

                Multiple Provisioning Domain Architecture


   This document is a product of the work of the Multiple Interfaces    Architecture Design team.  It outlines a solution framework for some    of the issues experienced by nodes that can be attached to multiple    networks simultaneously.  The framework defines the concept of a    Provisioning Domain (PvD), which is a consistent set of network    configuration information.  PvD-aware nodes learn PvD-specific    information from the networks they are attached to and/or other    sources.  PvDs are used to enable separation and configuration    consistency in the presence of multiple concurrent connections.
