This document defines requirements for signaling across different
network environments, such as across administrative and/or technology
domains.  Signaling is mainly considered for Quality of Service (Qos)
such as the Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP).  However, in recent
years, several other applications of signaling have been defined.  For
example, signaling for label distribution in Multiprotocol Label
Switching (MPLS) or signaling to middleboxes.  To achieve wide
applicability of the requirements, the starting point is a diverse set
of scenarios/use cases concerning various types of networks and
application interactions.  This document presents the assumptions
before listing the requirements.  The requirements are grouped
according to areas such as architecture and design goals, signaling
flows, layering, performance, flexibility, security, and mobility.

This document is a product of the Next Steps in Signaling Working
Group of the IETF.
