OSPF is a link-state intra-domain routing protocol.  OSPF routers
exchange information on a link using packets that follow a
well-defined fixed format.  The format is not flexible enough to
enable new features that need to exchange arbitrary data.  This
document describes a backward-compatible technique to perform
link-local signaling, i.e., exchange arbitrary data on a link.  This
document replaces the experimental specification published in RFC 4813
to bring it on the Standards Track.

This document is a product of the Open Shortest Path First IGP Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
