OSPF Traffic Engineering (TE) extensions are used to advertise TE
Link State Advertisements (LSAs) containing information about TE-enabled
links.  The only addresses belonging to a router that are
advertised in TE LSAs are the local addresses corresponding to TE-enabled
links, and the local address corresponding to the Router ID.

In order to allow other routers in a network to compute Multiprotocol
Label Switching (MPLS) Traffic Engineered Label Switched Paths (TE
LSPs) to a given router's local addresses, those addresses must also
be advertised by OSPF TE.

This document describes procedures that enhance OSPF TE to advertise
a router's local addresses.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
