                         IS-IS Autoconfiguration


   This document specifies IS-IS autoconfiguration mechanisms.  The key    components are IS-IS System ID self-generation, duplication    detection, and duplication resolution.  These mechanisms provide    limited IS-IS functions and are therefore suitable for networks where    plug-and-play configuration is expected.
