Abstract

Corruption of the Remaining Lifetime field in a Link State Protocol Data Unit (LSP) can go undetected. In certain scenarios, this may cause or exacerbate flooding storms. It is also a possible denial-of-service attack vector. This document defines a backwards-compatible solution to this problem.
