            Port Control Protocol (PCP) Third-Party ID Option


   This document describes a new Port Control Protocol (PCP) option    called the THIRD_PARTY_ID option.  It is designed to be used together    with the THIRD_PARTY option specified in RFC 6887.

   The THIRD_PARTY_ID option serves to identify a third party in    situations where a third party's IP address contained in the    THIRD_PARTY option does not provide sufficient information to create    requested mappings in a PCP-controlled device.
